C-series chronograph watch designs by Ichiro Iwasaki for Issey Miyake. The question is, black face on black leather or white face on NATO..?
“I thought that the more thoroughly I tried to re-establish a “real” chronograph, the more beautiful it would be.
I removed unnecessary elements to isolate the pure chronograph and found that lines and numerals became more conspicuous as they are in musical scores and mathematical formulas.
Pure lines and numerals exist beyond time, place and gender. This is the image of the chronograph I was looking for, a chronograph of lines and numerals: ‘C.’”
