ANICORN is an innovative young watch brand founded by graphic designer Joe Kwan and based in Hong Kong. The company’s first collection, Series 000, successfully launched on Kickstarter and is now available for direct purchase. Created with special attention to design, typeface, and mechanism, the three 000 styles stand out from the crowd. Each of the timepieces features a unique concentric disc system instead of hands, freeing up a third of the face without sacrificing legibility. The hour, minute, and second markers are silkscreened underneath the anti-reflective Sapphire crystal in the Swiss font Numeral. Eco-friendly as well as thoughtful, the wristwatch ticks with an automatic Japanese movement that requires no battery. The design is durable as well, being outfitted with stainless steel hardware, sealed in black PVD coating, and brought together with a black and tan genuine leather strap. Find the accessory online from ANICORN in red, yellow, and blue colorways, each priced at $325, buy here.
