Ike Strikes Again – A. Manzoni & Fils Canopus Weekplanner

Remember Ikepod watches? Watches with a futuristic design that were out-of-the-ordinary. A number of their watches were designed by Marc Newson (who later also designed an Atmos clock for Jaeger-LeCoultre). My favourite model was definitely the Ikepod Hemipode Cunningham Chronograph, but to this day.. I am not even sure if this company still exists. In any case, the original founder of that company was Oliver Ike. He started Ikepod in 1996 and quickly moved on to be a consultant to other watch brands. However, he found it challenging to work on other brand's master pieces while he still had his own master piece in mind.
