« Product Characteristics »
■ Face with pure “lines and numerals,” nothing extraneous

Adhering rigorously to the essence of a timepiece, the dial face consists of lines and numerals only, with the hour and minute hands ticking time slowly above it. For the time to be readable in any circumstance, luminous hands are used to provide utmost readability as an analogue chronograph.

■ Genderless, single size

Reflecting the stoutly framed image of the ISSEY MIYAKE brand, the collection presents moderately genderless one-size watches combined with bands of various materials and colors.

The simple, light body fits and rests comfortably on any size wrist.

■ Replacement bands synchronizing with season, scene and mood

Incorporating the keyword “DAY” into the design concept, Iwasaki set out to make a watch that anyone would want to wear at any time in any place.

Anchored by the two dial colors, the basic choice is black or white model. The user, then, can change the band with various options to enjoy wearing the watch longer.
