We can't get enough of super-talented accessories designer Michael Saiger. From inspiring us with his creative space in an exclusive tour of his Design District studio, to showing us that a sunglasses lanyard can actually be cool, he's wowed us once again with his new collection of timepieces — all of which have been conceptualized from hand-drawn sketches, then milled, drilled, welded and made from scratch.
Entitled Miansai by Michael Saiger, the range delivers craftsmanship at its finest, with all watches featuring Swiss sapphire crystal, stainless steel, and high grade water resistance (in other words, perfect for even the most outdoorsy of urban warriors).
Miansai's timepieces are now available for pre-sale from Barney’s CO-OP with an anticipated in-store and online release date of April 1.

Just select the watch and Hook bracelet of your choice, and the cost of the bracelet will be taken off upon check out.
