Product Description

The eye of the camera, the eye of God, the eye of the artist behind the camera. Themes of grand scope are suggested and peeked at through the teal, iris-like dial at the centre of Kurosawa’s Eiga-Shi (GZ141). Fringed with bronze- and silver-coloured rays that look like eyelashes, the dial is a small, intensely-hued blue-green circle set within the white circle of the watch face. Blue and flag-red run along the 12 and 6 o’clock sides of the strap, each with a neat clear line running lengthwise and dividing the fields of colour. Beautiful and simple, this watch by the master filmmaker is lyrical and full of mystery.
