The New Limited Edition Mr. Jones King & Queen Mechanical Automatic Jump Hour Mystery Watches - Only 100 Made - Made In London

KINGQUEENEMAIL

It's In The Cards

The King & Queen Jump Hour Automatic

This watch is based on the classic playing card characters of the King and Queen of Hearts. The watches feature hands of cards to depict the minutes while the hours literally jump into position in the Royal Breast.
The use of the playing cards symbolizes the transitory nature of fortune - lucky streaks, while always welcome, are only as short lived as those runs of bad luck. The watch is a gentle reminder to keep your cards close to your chest, but to be bold and go all-in when fate has dealt you a winning hand!

The minutes are depicted as hand of cards, for the sake of clarity only 10 minute intervals are marked:
There is a grey card-footprint on the dial to allow you to judge the minutes between the markers. You can see how far the leading or trailing edge of the cards is from the footprint shape to read the minutes:

Mechanical Movement
This watch is powered by an automatic mechanical movement. The watch is wound either by turning the winding crown on the left hand side of the case, or (more simply) by the everyday motion of your wrist. A weight on the mechanism rotates in response to normal movement and transfers this energy to winding up the mainpspring (if you hold the watch in your hand and gently rock it back and forth you can feel this weight moving).

MAndCo Piefront
Who doesn’t need to carve out a piece of time? M&Co PIE Watch is the epitome of pure watch design. Originally designed in 1984 by M&Co Labs, the classic brass version of the Bodoni watch made for the PIE or Quarter watch. Creator Tibor Kalman’s witty take on time still cajoles a smile.

MAndCo Askewthumb
Your eyes do not deceive you with this now classic.
There are timepieces with no numbers at all, so why not a watch with a free spirit? The irreverent Askew Watch from M&Co was created with the notion that as long as the familiar twelve was at the top it was immaterial where the rest of the numbers lie.
Your eyes are not playing tricks on you! This watch is characteristic of Tibor Kalman, and his iconoclastic design firm. Clean graphics and dry humor merge in a high-quality product that beckons a second look!
MAndCo bodonibrassfront
The Bodoni has long been recognized as an icon of simplistic and pure watch design. Originally designed in 1984, the classic all black version gave way to the brushed stainless steel version.

MAndCo Onomatopoeiafull
The term used to describe words whose pronunciations suggest their meaning (eg, meow, buzz).
Here symbols suggest the sound of the numbers:
3 = tree (three)
5 = hand (5 fingers)
9 = cat (9 lives)
12 = Eggs (dozen/12)
This Onomatopoeia watch M&Co is characteristic of Tibor Kalman, and his iconoclastic design firm. Clean graphics and dry humor merge in a high-quality product that beckons a second look

The HALOGRAPH Automatic by XERIC is Live on Kickstarter

HALOGRAPH-EMAIL-BANNER

KICKSTART This Mechanical Heart

The HALOGRAPH is not an electronic gadget: it's a mechanical heirloom

The Kickstarter Campaign Starts Now!
We need your support to make this cool & affordable limited edition mechanical watch a reality and if you're quick, take advantage of the Early Bird rewards.
The HALOGRAPH is super easy to read. As the Halo hands float over the dimensional, hemicycle time display arcs, they encircle the hour and minute of the current time. The inner arcs display the hours, the outer arcs displays the minutes.
Like the chambers of a beating mechanical heart, the twin balance wheels pump life into this complex time machine. Seeing the action of a living machine on your wrist gives a thrill no electronic gadget can.
We created the HALOGRAPH to be more elliptical than other mechanical watches, with a 5mm high double-curved domed-crystal and rounded forms throughout the design. This reflects our obsession with the infinite nature of time.

Why choose a mechanical watch over a smartwatch today?
A smartwatch starts to die as soon as its circuitry is activated, and its functional obsolescence starts as soon as it's off the assembly line. A mechanical watch will never be obsolete. It will always connect you in a meaningful way with this moment in time. With the HALOGRAPH Automatic, we think we've designed a v1.0 that 'nailed it' the first time, and will be as exceptional in form and function in hundreds of years as it is now.
