world’s first watch with built-in bottle opener pushes out its steel case body to pop caps

RASKH’s leverage has a push-out body for built-in bottle opener

 
Design collective RASKH introduces Leverage, a series of watches dubbed the world’s first with a built-in bottle opener behind its stainless steel case body. The moveable rear can be pushed out to reveal the bottle opener. The wearer first rotates and releases the crown at the eight o’clock position of the watch before pushing out the patented inner case body. Once the cap is popped, the wearer just nudges the dial back into the case.
 
The construction is made possible thanks to the multi-faceted bezel and case body of Leverage. From afar, it appears chunky to conceal the built-in bottle opener in its rear. The design of the movable body is locked using the crown in an octagon shape, which for the design collective can quite literally embody ‘a twist’ in this series of watches with a feature of this kind. Polished and brushed finishing makes the steel case and body glint for a stylish touch, too.

Super-LumiNova make the watch hours glow in the dark

 
The built-in bottle opener is only one of the star features that RASKH has for Leverage. For all the watch models, the coloration ‘Swiss Super-LumiNova’ is employed to make the watch hands and hours glow in the dark with a cool neon blue tint. The indexes are enlarged to ensure the wearer can read the time in the dark, and the luminous painted layout on the 24-hour function represents the nighttime of the day, too.
 
For this series of watches with a built-in bottle opener, leather straps wrap around the wrists of the wearer. RASKH says that they are using ‘quality genuine leather’ which features classic stitching along the length of the strap. The bands are available in three shades: brown, gray, and black. These are tapered down to 20mm at the buckle to make them comfortable to wear. RASKH also adds a quick-release spring bar system for the leather straps, so the wearers can easily change them whenever they want.

It may have a steel case body, but RASKH’s Leverage series is only water-resistant to a degree. Exposure to high humidity and light rain showers is okay, but the wearer should avoid wearing the watch while showering, swimming, diving, or during activities with abnormal water pressures. It might sound fun to bring the world’s first timepiece with a built-in bottle opener to water activities, but not so much when its time-reading feature doesn’t work anymore.
 
For the watch’s packaging, RASKH says 80 percent of it can be recycled and reproduced. As of publishing the story, Leverage’s campaign is live, which offers four models: Daily Blue, Ethereal White, and Retro Beige, all priced at 499 USD, and a special edition named Blackout, priced at 529 USD. RASKH aims to go into production in August 2024 for the world’s first watches with a built-in bottle opener, with an expected delivery date of January 2025.
