C series watches

from Issey Miyake

Designed by Ichiro Iwasaki

For its 14th series, the ISSEY MIYAKE Watch Project offered Ichiro Iwasaki, a professional equipment designer, the challenge of squarely taking on the chronograph design.

Trying to achieve a quality watch in a conventional style but with a beautiful face, he sought a high level of readability through delicate numerals and markers.

“I thought that the more thoroughly I tried to reestablish 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.’”
