TO The “TO” series well reflects Tokujin
Yoshioka’s unique approach to design.He begins by selecting materials;
then extracts its character, minimalizing design elements. As a result,
the watches look as if they have been sculpted from a lump of metal.
The fusing of ISSEY MIYAKE’S creative vision and SII’s advanced
technology of watch-making now embraces the design inspirations of
Tokujin Yoshioka, giving birth to the “TO” series.

I LOVE the design of this watch, which is why it kills me this happened.
First of all, I'll say be careful with it, as I lightly tapped the edge of the glass on a metal door facing and it chipped the glass. The design lets the glass rise a few hundredths of an inch up from the face of the watch and that's just enough that the corner of the glass will hit something and shatter easily like this.
Secondly, my 1.5 yo came into my office picked up the watch off the desk and plopped it down again. And the central disc that is the hour hand just broke loose and fell to the edge of the case.
Hoping to get it repaired, but feeling like the poor quality of construction of this watch makes it not worth its price.
