Embodying an analog, cosmic view of a mechanical watch
“W automatic” has brought further evolution to the “W” series, designed by Satoshi Wada,
a leading Japanese automotive and product designer.
By elaborating the design of a mechanical watch,
he created a distinctly new worldview while maintaining the impact of traditional Japanese aesthetics—aesthetic characteristic of the “W” series.
The combination of red scale on the dial and red second hand,
which he designed being inspired by a traditional compass, represents the analog, cosmic view inherent in a mechanical watch.
The smooth sweep movement of the second hand conveys the steady flow of time through space,
inviting you to travel into time, into space, and beyond them both.
