PHLOX

The design of this watch is based on the woodland phlox flower that is native to western North America (phlox diffusa). The face of the watch has an image based on the Phlox flower. The image aligns and breaks apart as the hands rotate constantly moving in and out of alignment, it's constantly changing throughout the day.

The watch is inspired by floriography, that is the Victorian system for ascribing a specific meaning to different flowers. This system was used as a way for lovers to send secret messages to each other (the message was only visible to those who could interpret the code). The case back has an engraving that explains the floriographic meaning of the flower: “our souls are united”.

The watch comes in an MJW presentation box which features a specially commissioned artwork by Fanny Shorter.

Floriography

Each watch features an abstracted motif based on a flower. The image aligns and breaks apart as the hands rotate, constantly moving in and out of phase. The back of the case has an engraving that explains the meaning of the flower.
