time telling on the Satellite is enigmatic and unique: the outer hour
marker orbits the inner minutes. Each hour is marked by a bright color
and these colors follow a regular six hour pattern, so you can learn to
read the time intuitively and at a glance.
Satellite is the first 24 hour watch from Mr. Jones, which means the hour hand makes one complete revolution of the dial in 24 hours. The watch has an unconventional arrangement of hour and minute hands: the slow moving hour marker sits outside the the minutes. This was inspired by the movement of celestial bodies: the more distant a planet is from the center of gravity the longer it's orbit takes.
The case is rendered in brushed steel with a PVD black coating, which gives the watch a hardwearing, sleek appearance.
The watch runs on a 24 hour mechanism, so the circle marking the hour makes one complete revolution of the dial every 24 hours. The illustration shows the mapping of the hours around the face. The minutes run at the conventional speed (i.e. the gold minute marker makes one revolution every 60 minutes).
The 24 hour dial actually predates the more conventional 12 hour: sundials show 12 hours in a semi-circle, so the complete circle would make up a full 24 hours (for obvious practical reasons only 12 hours are generally shown).
The watch comes packed in an MJW box which features a newly commissioned artwork by illustrator Fanny Shorter. Inspired by the 24 hour mechanism, Fanny's artwork shows the life cycle of the Mayfly which takes just 24 hours.
