Issey Miyake "Hu" Watch Designed By Ross Lovegrove
What gets me is the interesting theme behind the organic looking Hu watch. According to Lovegrove, the concept is that the watch should look like an extension of your body - as though it was growing out of your wrist. Sure the colors don't exactly match, but that would just look weird. The Hu watch is made of titanium with a rubber strap and comes in gray, white, and black. The dial of the watch is very simple. It shows just the hours and minutes, with only two hour indicator points - fine for those people who don't need such embellishments. I for one, DO need such embellishments. The movement is a Seiko quartz, of course. Despite the simple nature of the watch, it does look quite nice, and I look forward to seeing it on some wrists soon.
