Hong Kong-based watch brand Anicorn unveils newest series in their watch collection: the K452. This new timepiece takes inspiration from Kepler-452b, an exo-planet discovered under NASA’s Kepler & K2 project. On 09 Feb 2016, Anicorn launched an online crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter for the promotion its new K452 series of mechanical timepieces.
Established by graphic designer Joe Kwanand entrepreneur Chris Chanin in 2013, Anicorn combines design, typeface, and mechanism with simplicity and contemporary style. Their first watch, the Series 000, was successfully funded within 5 days on Kickstarter, and has been featured in design and lifestyle publications worldwide.
Utilizing a revolutionary concentric-disc system this new timepiece omits watch hands, opting to display time through beautifully simple rotating discs, serving as an homage to Kepler’s discovery of the mechanics of orbital movements in space. The discs illustrate the relationship between time and space as they pass numbers resembling planets orbiting the sun.
