TIME WELL SPENT
Established in 1991, TOKYObay is a San Francisco designed watch and accessory brand born out of a collaboration between two talented designers from two very different backgrounds. Jun Kobayashi, from Tokyo, and Dory Isaacs, originally from the UK and now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, came together as two friends with time on their minds.
The East meets West watch and accessory line is infused with everything from Jun’s days as a bassist in the popular niche group Flower Travelin’ Band to Dory’s upbringing in England as a passionate fashion student and ceramic studio owner. The result is a constantly evolving, unique fusion of Japanese minimalism and fashion-focused sensibilities.
Always stylish, well designed, full of color with good times in mind, TOKYObay is time well spent when dressing for the everyday.
“We came together over twenty years ago to create something different using our individual strengths and backgrounds in design and product development. We find continual inspiration in our work by combining new materials sourced from different countries and integrating unexpected textures and metal finishes. By experimenting with new looks and colors each season, we try to consistently evolve the line by mixing various eras with modern elements to bring both a familiar yet distinct look.”
— Dory Isaacs, Founder & Designer
