Tokyo Bay Item of the Day: Tokyo Bay

We love stacking bracelets on our wrists, but who says watches can’t join the arm party?

Tokyo Bay has a line of petite, double-wrap watches that coordinate just perfectly with their line of leather/fabric wrap bracelets. This way, they can be worn as one large, perfectly coordinated stack.

Part of TokyoBay’s Obi collection, the bracelets and watch straps use a single layer of ‘Sanada Obi’, a tightly hand-woven Japanese silk cord with a 400-year-old history. Here, they are backed with leather for structure and durability.

Obi cord was originally used in the 1600s as belts for kimonos or for Samurai warriors to secure sword handles and armor. Created on specialty looms by a collective of artisans outside of Kyoto, a full length of Obi can take up to one month to complete.

The bracelets close with toggles for adjustability. Obi bracelets retail for $35; the watches, $110.
