After years of absence in the watch world, the Ikepod name finally makes a return. Originally founded by Marc Newson and Oliver Ike, Ikepod is known for its UFO-like rounded case design, often described as a “vintage watch from the future.” The new re-launch sees similar minimal design elements found in past watches, but thrown into the mix is a teaser of a 44mm chronograph version — a deviation from its customary hour-and-minute-only hand stack arrangement.

It will be interesting to see what sort of now approach the watch brand has up its sleeve, as Ikepod was known for a more progressive take on watchmaking, even to go as far as collaborating with names outside of watchmaking like KAWS and Colette. Heading the new dial designs is none other than famed watch designer Emmanuel Gueit, who at the age of 22 reworking Gerald Genta’s iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak into the Royal Oak Offshore. Stay tuned as Ikepod is set for an exact re-launch date in the coming weeks.

For more watch news, Jacob & Co. has just unveiled its $554,000 USD Twin Turbo Furious watch.
