dispenses with a conventional arrangement of hour, minute and second
hands; instead a single hour marker passes around the colored dial.
Each hour is represented by a different colored circle (variations of red, purple, yellow, green, white and orange), the blk 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.
Designed by Crispin Jones, they are genuine indie
products entirely conceived and executed following a singular vision.
To use a cinematic analogy: most watches may be thought of as Hollywood
blockbusters replete with happy ending and saccharine sentiment; Mr
Jones Watches in contrast are film noir - interested in the anti-hero
and the complicated pleasures of everyday life...
watch today is a defunct tool - we all have a mobile phone to check the
time on, but the watch endures because it expresses something of our
personality. Whilst many watches are a symbol of material wealth, Mr Jones
Watches are concerned with ideas.”

About Mr Jones
Founded by London-based designer Crispin Jones in 2007,
Mr Jones Watches aims to create and produce watches that do more than just
tell the time. A masters Degree from the Royal College of Art combined
with a history designing for companies including Casio Research and
Phillips Design has influenced the way Crispin approached his designs.
To achieve the intricate and playful designs
in the collection, Mr Jones Watches uses a series of rotating disks layed
on top of each other. The idea, usually used in the design of children’s
watches, allows for intricate illustrations and more experimental layouts;
whilst still showing the time.
