Mr Jones All Around The World Watch - Landmark Timekeeping!

Mr Jones Watches 'All Around the World'

All Around the world has eight distinct hour hands. Each hand is a landmark building in a different time zone. You can see at a glance the time in the different zones by reading it off the angle of the building. A pigeon (the universal city dweller) marks the minutes. This watch is produced in an edition of 100 pieces, each one numbered on the case back and signed by the designer,
Crispin Jones, on the insert card.

Mr. Jones produced a time lapse film of the watch running inside the clock tower of The Caledonian Park clock in London (many thanks to Alfie Dennen for facilitating this).

A new design from our fifth series. This watch allows you to visualise the time in different countries - eight are represented on the single hand.

From a distance the hour hand appears to be a graphic motif, upon closer inspection it resolves to show the detail of landmark buildings around the world.
The time is marked by:

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco: GMT -8

Salt Lake Temple, Utah: GMT -7
Sears Tower, Chicago: GMT -6
Statue of Liberty, New York: GMT -5
Big Ben, London: GMT ±0
The Eiffel Tower, Paris: GMT + 1
Istambul's minarets: GMT + 2
Red Square, Moscow: GMT +3

The watch comes in an MJW presentation box which features a specially commissioned artwork by illustrator Beibei Nei (
