Better known for its popular hook bracelets that are now sold in over 250 locations worldwide, Miami-based accessory brand Miansai by Michael Saiger announced its initial foray into the realm of wristwatches. The rustic, vintage-inspired trinket maker has manufactured a collection of three timepieces – the perpetual M1, chronograph M2, and the automatic M3 – all of which feature a Japanese or chronograph movement. Referring to his inspiration Saiger mentions, “A lot of watchmakers focus their pieces around a lifestyle they are trying to sell: racer, pilot, thrill seeker, etc. I wanted to make watches that didn’t lean towards any of that [but] rather were just good-looking, classic and ageless styles that anyone and everyone could wear regardless of the occasion.” With nods to both contemporary and heritage sensibilities, each watch features a second hand with the same hook motif that is found in the brand’s top-selling wrap bracelets, and your choice of bands in leather, ribbon, rope, or a combination. Additional details include a water-resistant build and 39mm steel casing. With almost 60 iterations available, Miansai’s watch collection is currently available through its webstore and barneys.com with price tags ranging from $355 to $500 USD.
