Mr. Jones Watches

Maker - Crispin Jones

Maker Story

A One-Eyed Wonder

Everywhere you look, people are reaching for their cell phones to make calls, take pictures, surf the Web or check the time. Sure, a cell phone is a multitasking marvel. But it’s still no substitute for a great wristwatch.

London designer Crispin Jones was inspired by ancient sundials when he created the Cyclops watch. It dispenses with conventional hour, minute and second hands and goes for a looser method of timekeeping. A single marker advances around the dial, and each hour is represented by a different circle. You can gauge the time based on the marker’s relative position. It’s not about telling time down to the exact minute, but about getting a general sense of the time to within a few minutes, Crispin says. The result is a relaxed kind of accuracy that brings a welcome balance to our hectic lives.

The Cyclops from Mr Jones Watches is available in two versions. The original version has a stainless steel case, white face, and stainless steel mesh strap. The special edition is done in black stainless steel. A wristwatch is more than a device that tells time; it expresses the wearer’s style and personality. If you’re up for unconventional timekeeping, you’ll be into Mr Jones Watch.
