Issey Miyake AL Trapezoid Blue
"As the name "TRAPEZOID" suggests, I first had the image of a trapezoid
form in rotation. So, the bezel is cut deeply, and a tachymeter is
provided on it. Numbers are proportioned like speed limits painted on a
road surface - stretched in height to be readable normally when viewed
from the front, despite their steep angles around the circumference.
It's a familiar scene and effect, and I've used it now in combination
with chronograph functions. In the same way, fashion and motor sports
are unified via the use of strong color contrasts."
- Naoto Fukasawa - Trapezoid Designer
The chronograph face looks like a functional dashboard. The numbers of
a tachometer are engraved on the side of the bezel. While some of the
numbers on the side of the bezel are upside down, they are in fact
oriented so as to be readable normally when viewed from the top.
