Mechanical Teeth Instead of Hands - Mr. Jones First Automatic Jump Hour Watches


Mr. Jones Mechanical Jump Hour Watches

First Ever Automatic Timepieces Released Today

The Last Laugh Skull and Tattoo Edition are now true mechanical jumping hour watches!

This automatic movement has a 'jump-hour' feature that means the hour changes over exactly on the 59 -> 00 minute transition. Click the links below to see the time-lapse films showing the mechanism.

Time on this watch is displayed on the skull's teeth - the two front teeth show the hours while the lower jaw shows the minutes. The watch is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize the moment while we're here.

The watch is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement. The mechanical movement means that you'll never need to replace the battery on this watch - the motion of wearing the watch provides all the power needed to wind it up and keep it running.

Released Today and in Very Limited Supply! See Them Here:

Azimuth Landship - Turrets of Time




 This is a time machine ready for battle! Complete with a turret and a sponson (side gun), the SP-1 Landship takes you back to the mean, heavily armored war machines first seen thundering over barbed wires and trenches in WWI.

Encased in high grade Titanium, the SP-1 Landship’s turret contains a 3-dimensional Wandering Hour Drum, allowing the wearer to read the hour in an upright manner by looking inside the turret, which is different from the normal way of reading time on a flat plane. The Retrograde Minute complication can also be viewed in a similar upright fashion. The sponson on the side doubles up as the winding crown of the watch. The SP-1 Landship’s distinctive shape and function also means that the manufacturing process is different from the conventional means of watch-making, thereby pushing the boundaries of watch design and manufacture to new limits and setting a new benchmark for other watch makers to pursue.

The “engine” that powers this amazing machine is Azimuth’s own in-house modified 28,800 vph Swiss-made “X-1” retrograde minutes and wondering hour movement. And because it is modified in-house, this movement is not available to other Swiss watch manufacturers.

Each watch will have its unique serial number, etched on a loose plate on the left side of the Titanium case and bolted only when the watch is delivered – a first for the industry too.

The Landship is not the only innovative design from Azimuth that draws inspiration from objects not normally associated with watches; previous Azimuth models included a Lamborghini inspired SP-1 TBT and the Robot-shaped Mecha-1 Mr Roboto and the ever popular SP-1 Spaceship; modeled after a Spaceship of course!.

First crafted and shown to the media and trade buyers at Baselworld, the final and finer version of the SP-1 Landship is finally available!

There will only be a limited production of 100 SP-1 Landships.
