Mr. Jones Flower Power
Limited Edition of only 100 - Now Made in London
The guns on the face of this watch perform a choreographed dance, creating an image of psychedelic flower petals. The watch is inspired by the philosophy and imagery of the 1960s peace movement, as well as being a sly subversion of the fashion for macho military watches.
On the face of this watch a colorful floral shape appears and disappears - the petals aligning and breaking apart. Upon closer inspection the individual petals of the flower resolve into the shape of guns. The watch is inspired by the philosophy and imagery of anti-war protest movements from the 1960s. Flower Power embodies the hope that as time passes the gun will be transformed from a tool of war to one of peace - the Biblical notion of turning swords into ploughshares. Looking at it another way it reflects the alternating cycle of war to peace, the balancing of harmony with chaos through history.
Flower Power is released in an edition of 100 pieces, with each watch individually numbered on the case back. The watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned design by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer.
