The Mr. Jones Time Traveller: A Different World Time Watch

45-L6-flat-stand-3Mr. Jones is known to make really unusual watches. The Time Traveller is no exception. The watch is an interesting piece with a graphic looking dial, providing the time for 16 different time zones.

Time Traveller allows you to see the time all over the world. The watch uses 16 different landmark buildings to mark the different regions and the local time is read by looking at the landmark building in your city or time-zone. For London the Big Ben is the hour hand, for Paris it’s the Eiffel Tower, for New York the Statue of Liberty, for San Francisco the Golden Gate Bridge and so on. The minutes are marked by a red pigeon as the universal city dweller, moving around the dial.

The watch uses a 24 hour mechanism which means the our hand makes one rotation in 24 hours. Therefore the Time Traveller has to be read slightly different from a regular 12 hour watch: The upper semi-circle marks the hours from 6 am to 6 pm. When the hour hand is pointing horizontal left, to where on a regular watch would be 9 o’clock, this correspondents to 6 am. At 12 o’clock it’s also 12 o’clock, no changes here and horizontal right, where on a regular watch would be 3 o’clock, it is 6 pm on the Mr. Jones Time Traveller. The lower semi-circle marks the hours from 6 pm to 6 am, with centre bottom marking midnight.

The 37 mm case is made from polished stainless steel, coming in the typical shape of all the Mr. Jones watches. It houses a Ronda quartz movement and is water resistant up to 5 ATM.
The watch comes on a black leather strap with black stitching.

Retail price for the Time Traveller is £160 and it can be purchased online here.
