Cyclops by Mr Jones Watches

Watch designer Crispin Jones of Mr Jones Watches has designed a new model without numbers and hands.

The Cyclops watch has a black hoop that passes around a dial marked with coloured circles and has "a relaxed kind of accuracy that offers a counterpoint to our hectic modern lives," according to Jones.

The limited-edition watches come in a presentation box (above and below) with artwork by Debbie Smyth, who was one of the winners of our Talent Zone competition last year.

Here's some info from the designer:

--

Cyclops dispenses with a conventional arrangement of hour, minute and second hands; instead a single hour marker passes around the coloured dial. Each hour is represented by a different coloured circle, the black hoop gradually passes over each circle to indicate the time.

Cyclops can be read with a relaxed kind of accuracy that offers a counterpoint to our hectic modern lives.

Cyclops is part of our third limited edition series. These watches are produced in a run of 100 pieces, each numbered on the back of the case and signed by the designer Crispin Jones on the insert card. We aim to produce a limited edition series each year and to take one or two models from each series into our permanent collection.

Each watch comes in a MJW presentation box with a specially commissioned artwork by Debbie Smyth. Inside the box you'll find the guarantee card - every watch is guaranteed for 12 months from the date of purchase against any original manufacturing defect.
