12:19- I was on a Tokyo railway station when the inspiration to design watches ‘struck’. I looked up, the clock went tick and the train came in. Then I looked up again, the clock ticked and the train whizzed out. Literally like clockwork and bang on time at exactly 12:19! “That’s it,” I thought, “let’s design a watch inspired by the Japanese railway system!”
This edition is the round yellow face with black leather strap.
