Multi-hand mini model inheriting the design concept of “W”

The powerful and dynamic case is inspired by an aluminum wheel of a car and the long hands indicate the time on its precise gauge-like dial. The concept is explained by the designer—"I designed this watch to reflect the minimal mind based on the traditional aesthetic sense of Japan”.

While faithfully continuing the design concept of the “W” series, the “W” mini-size models reduce the case diameter from 42 mm to 39 mm. Although the sporty air of a chronograph remains, the sub-dials provide practical functions that indicate seconds, date, and day of the week, respectively. These are unisex watches that can be worn comfortably and enjoyably by men with slender wrists as well as women, creating a world of new possibilities for the “W” series.
