PXR-6 Ultranoir

The PXR-6 has been revamped on the inside, but functions and looks the same on the outside.

The functions remain the same and are simple, clear and to the point: time and date on a dark background with light type. And when the light button is pressed, it glows with beautiful blue light. The bracelet is almost an inch wide and can be adjusted to a minimum length of 6.5″ (16,5 cm) or a maximum of 8.25″ (21 cm).

My favorite product designer (Naoto Fukasawa) and one of my favorite fashion designers (Issey Miyake) have teamed up to make a pretty cool watch.

I have the wallet version of this little zippered bag and it’s quite handy. I’ve had it for a few years and get quite a few compliments on it, but it’s been sold out for a long time and it’s nice to see it’s back.
