The "Vue" is a streamlined supercar of a timepiece. Featuring a glass top cylinder supported by a sculpted stainless steel chassis - and available in typically Miyake-esque shades of fluorescent white and bright black - the watch's key selling point is that only one number ever appears on the watch face, with the other coming into focus as the hour approaches. Simple design at its best.
