Eggish timer

This column has been quite friendly to Issey Miyake's collection of watches in the past, and no wonder, with superstar designers like Naoto Fukasawa and Tokujin Yoshioka contributing designs that have fast become iconic and easily recognizable. It's time to revisit them because of Shunji Yamanaka's OVO, the sixth addition to the line, and the second watch from Yamanaka (his first was the INSETTO). The smooth bulbous lines — the watch takes its name from the Portuguese for egg — give it a stylish finish that fits the brand quite nicely yet offers a distinct form that we haven't yet seen. I think I've found my next timepiece.
