Yves Béhar of San Francisco design studio fuseproject has collaborated with Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake to design a watch where the hour markers fade in and out of view. Update: Vue can now be bought at Dezeen Watch Store.
Called Vue, the watch has black dot on its opaque rotating face, which contains transparent slits to reveal the numbers underneath as it passes over them.

A VUE OF THE FUTURE WITH ISSEY MIYAKE
The mindset of VUE, our new watch with Issey Miyake, is to experience the mystery of time hour by hour: VUE is a way to feel time’s appearance and disappearance in our lives. By seeing only the current hour, while the last hour representing the past and the next one representing the future subtly fade in and out, we can live a new view (VUE) of time.
