The Vue by Yves Behar for Issey Miyake

The Vue Booth
This is already all over the blogs, but I got to be the one who actually saw the unveiling before the show and then bumped into Yves Behar, the designer as he spent an entire day at the booth pitching the wristwatch to potential distributors.
The Vue, if you aren’t familiar with Issey Miyake, is the latest in a line of watches that are released annually by the brand. Each watch is done by a prolific designer and usually features a design or stylistic feature that makes the wristwatch unconventional. For the Vue, Yves replaced the hour hand with a disc and a filter that would make it appear as if the current hour fades in and then out.
But despite a neat concept, I felt that the watch feels a little underwhelming because of its size and lacks presence. This is Yves second wristwatch after his previous one for Mini.
