At one point, the "watch of the future" was a digital one, but as time passed, the stylistic virtues of analog watches began to outweigh the easy readability and multiple functions of digital watches. The fact that digital watches almost unfailingly attached to plastic bands for nearly two decades didn't help. Without a scrap of plastic in sight, Issey Miyake's TO 001 Watch really looks like the "watch of the future." It looks as though it has simply been sculpted from a piece of metal, yet it is fully functional. The ultra-sleek watch is entirely made of stainless steel, with a silvery dial, covered with a fine glass face, and a metal strap. It is packaged in a metal gift box, too. Price: $450.
