From Fragrances to Watches – The Issey Miyake Watch Collection

Issey Miyake watches are another thing I have had my eye on for well over a year now. Since then, their watch collection has got a lot bigger with a wide variety of watches that are now available. However, there are 3 watches from the collection that I particularly lurve!

The Trapezoid was the first Issey Miyake watch that I had seen. The overall shape of the watch is the most striking feature to me. Even though it has these Manly gimmicks that a man apparently needs but never uses in a watch e.g: chronograph, Rotating Bezel, etc. The Trapezoid doesn’t have the typical shape of a watch that would have those features. The Bezel is very slim and steep and i have got to say, this looks ruddy beautiful! The Trapezoid comes in a range of colours and would be an ideal Christmas present if you are still stuck for ideas (And a bit of cash to spare…)

The TO Collection is a lot slimmer looking compared to the Trapezoid and it comes with less features (No bezel and no chronograph) but the dials are the main feature. I am going to go all geeky here but the dials are genius and it doesn’t take a lot of getting use to unlike a Nooka watch (Nooka’s are cool too! Just a bit tricky!).

Lastly, there’s the newer Twelve 365 which is has been designed by Naoto Fukasawa and is just as individual as the other two models. It has a 12 sided face (Yes, a Dodecagon) with minimal detail but I have to say my favourite is the brown leather strap version because it just has that classic twist to it.
