Designed by New York-based, award-winning designer Nao Tamura, the Issey Miyake ‘1/6’ mechanical watch aims to put a focus on the passage of time. The concept also explores the idea of the watch as a tool, featuring a complex dial design with many markers. The name of the watch references to the movement’s six beats per second. It’s a nod to mechanical watches and their ability to make every moment more focused through the second hand’s motion.
“In this era where time seems to fleet away as devices like smart phones have become a necessity in our everyday life, I wanted to design a watch that we can surely feel the time ticking,” explains Nao Tamura.
