Issey Miyake joins forces with car designer Satoshi Wada to create ‘W’, a line of wristwatches so perfectly realized it can only be described as timeless.
Satoshi Wada, known for his work on the Audi A5, brings to the table nearly four decades of automotive design experience and the influence is clear. You can see the robust rim of a car wheel in the steel watch case. Automotive gauges in the three chronographic dials. Long slim watch hands mimicking the speed dial.
Peering deeper into the subtleties, it becomes apparent Miyake and Wada’s design philosophies were born of the same origin. Miyake with his deceptively simple tech-inspired fashion designs go seamlessly in line with Wada’s concept of “MINIMAL x FUTURE”. ‘W’ is two artists at the top of their games, masters of design economy, making it look easy.
As of January 2015 there are 10 unique models with plans to release more. For complete details, visit Issey Miyake’s website.
