Classic Journeys Through Time
Just In! New Tour Du Monde & Vingt Mille from Mr. Jones WatchesThese two watches were created for Mr. Jones by multi-talented designer and illustrator Fanny Shorter. She drew inspiration from the adventure stories of Jules Verne: One watch shows the battle with the giant squid from '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea', the other has Phileas Fogg racing to make it 'Around The World In 80 Days'.
Mr. Jones Vingt Mille WatchIn homage to the fearless Captain Nemo, this watch shows the dramatic attack of the giant squid from 20,000 leagues under the sea ("Vingt mille lieues sous les mers" in the original title). The endless battle between squid and man depicts the time, from hour to hour each appears to be gaining the upper hand. The two men being held by the squid indicate the hours and minutes.
The winding crown of this watch is specially signed with Captain Nemo's initial "N".
