Unicorns, Monsters & Alcohol, Oh My! New Limited Edition Mr. Jones Sun & Moon Watches


Your entire day in symbols

Here Comes The Sun & Moon

This special edition Mr. Jones Sun & Moon has been designed by New York illustrator Kirsten Ulve, “I like the notion of doing away with specific time telling, and embracing a more relaxed attitude. Symbols indicate the general time: dreamy unicorn sightings in the morning, the universal quest for cheese in the day, then some heavy drinking in the evening, followed by a bump in the night and monsters in the wee hours. Typical day kind of stuff without the need for those bothersome numbers."
The crescent shaped sky on the dial represents 12 hours, with the hours running from left to right: When the sun is next to the leftmost marker the time is 6am. The sun slowly climbs in the sky until it reaches the apex of the crescent, at which point the time is midday. The sun then gradually descends until it reaches the right hand marker at 6pm. After 6pm the Sun ‘sets’ and disappears from view, meanwhile the Moon ‘rises’ on the left. The position of the Moon in the sky therefore shows the hours from 6pm until 6am. The minutes are display in the center of the dial and these run in the conventional way, so each marker on this dial corresponds to five minutes.

Mr. Jones Sun & Moon Ulve Limited Edition -Gold
Sun and Moon watches were first produced in Britain in the late 1600s during a period of experimentation with the watch face and how to represent the time. Eventually, following this period of experimentation the concentric hour and minute hands became established as the universal standard.
About Mr. Jones:
Mr Jones Watches is the cult watch brand from London. They believe that a watch should do more than just tell the time: it should make you think, start a conversation or simply make you smile.
About the artist:
Kirsten Ulve is a New York City based illustrator and designer. She blends crisp conceptual design with a graceful fashion sensibility. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two black kitties Romulus and Remus.

Does Your Watch Have Balls? The New Black Titanium Bradley by Eone Time Does!


Feel The Time

New Launch, The All Black Titanium Bradley Ball Bearing Watch

Get one reserved today as we expect them to sell out fast! These are now available to pre-order and will be shipped in early November.
Designed and created by US design company Eone Time, The Bradley is a tactile timepiece that allows you to not only see what time it is, but to feel what time it is.
Instead of traditional watch hands, time is indicated by two ball bearings — one indicating minutes (top), and one indicating hours (side).
These two ball bearings are connected, with magnets, to a watch movement beneath the watch face.The magnets make it so that even if the ball bearings are moved when touched, they spring back to the correct time with a gentle shake of your wrist.

The timepiece is named after Bradley Snyder, an ex-naval officer who lost his eyesight in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2011 yet went on to win gold and silver medals at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
It was launched after a hugely successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and has since been nominated for Design Museum’s Design of the Year award.
This version comes with a black stainless steel mesh strap and black titanium case.

The New Qlocktwo Fine Steel Watch Is Here - Spell The Time With 110 Carved Letters


Qlocktwo Fine Steel Mesh

110 Letters Carved From Brushed Stainless Steel

For the first time, Biegert & Funk is exhibiting a completely new kind of wristwatch, now completely covered by and cut from brushed steel. It does not show the time with hands or digits. Time is indicated on this purist watch as readable text, turning it into a statement: “It is half past nine”. The square watch face has a uniform grid of 110 letters. When the stainless steel button is pressed, words light up in unexpected places which describe the time. The initially random order of the characters lends this wristwatch a mysterious aesthetic. QLOCKTWO makes you aware of the moment. Showing the time becomes an interesting experience for the owner.
