“ISSEY MIYAKE Watch” is the wristwatch which is produced by ISSEY MIYAKE. The design is unique, inspired by the designers famous in Japan and overseas. The box of the watch is remarkably stylish, so as to express the world view of each model. There are many types of models available, so we are going to introduce the most highly recommended models as a souvenir for your visit to Japan.
【1】The “F” model -the display of AM and PM changes and expresses the day’s story.

The 17th model of ISSEY MIYAKE Watch, “F”, was released in June 2018. The characteristics of the watch include a 24-hour clock face, where the outer clock displays the AM display while the inner clock displays the PM display. (The picture on the right shows the AM clock face, while the picture on the left shows both the AM at the outer face and the PM in the inner face). The changes of the display between AM and PM are intended the express the phase of the day. The left photo shows the model with leather, while the right photo shows the model with nylon. This model is also available with stainless steel. The clock face comes in two colours, white and black.
【2】The “TO” model exhibits quality metal! It needs no additional decoration at all!

The design of the “TO” model has overturned the concept of the watch. In order to emphasise the quality and form of the metal, the design elements such as the clock face and the needle indicator have been eliminated. Instead, the watch has been designed to be a more simple and impressed design. There is no short or long needle indicator like you might on a common watch. Instead, if you look closely at the circle, it is composed of three circles, with two slowly rotating from the centre and the scale indicating the time. There are four models available. In addition to the silver model on the left picture and the grey model on the right picture, there are also light gold models and models with a leather band and silver clock face. The entire box has been designed to truly allow the user to feel the concept of a wristwatch.
【3】The “O” model has a shape like water, no fixed form and shines like light.

The “O” model encapsulates the idea of the ‘shape of water’. It is a watch that not only indicates time but is transparent as well. “Eau”, pronounced “O”, means water in France. The belt is colourless and transparent, expressing the flowing water. Because this is a bangle type watch, it can be worn not only as a watch but as an accessory. There are nine colour choices, including clear, smoked, cherry blossom, rose and light blue. We suggest you wear the watch according to season, for example, cherry blossom in Spring and light blue in Summer.
【4】The “Glass Watch” model shines after absorbing natural light

“Glass Watch” gives the impression as though the watch is sealed at the bottom with a transparent glass. The light reflected by the watched is always changing depending on the light’s brightness, angle and time, just like an object which shines brightly when it receives natural light. In direct contrast to the cut glass, sleek leather is used for the watch band. Tanned leather is also available for the watch band.
