For its 15th timepiece, Issey Miyake’s eponymous label has called upon renowned former Audi designer Satoshi Wada for the second time. The result? The W Automatic.

The latest evolution of the “W” Series, the W Automatic delves into the origins of the mechanical wristwatch and updates the look with traditional compass-inspired aesthetic cues and Japanese notions of minimalistic beauty. Sleek and modern, the design comes in both silver and black and measures 45mm while sporting the likes of a self-winding automatic movement, a day-date window, and either a stainless steel bracelet or rubber strap.

Introduced last month and finally available in limited quantities, the watch can be picked up now via Issey Miyake timepiece stockists worldwide.
