Mr Jones unisex Flying Scotsman automatic watch featuring a forest green dial with yellow gold hands. Brushed black PVD plated stainless steel case and a black leather strap with green stitching.
This watch celebrates the iconic locomotive from the golden age of the steam train - Flying Scotsman was the nickname of the daily service from London to Edinburgh. The locomotive first came to international prominance in 1928 when it made the journey to Edinburgh non-stop from London, a huge achievement at the time. In February 2016 Flying Scotsman was recommissioned by the National Railway Museum and is once again travelling on Britain's railways.
The watch tracks the journey made by Flying Scotsman according to the 1931 timetable, leaving Kings Cross at 10 in the morning and arriving at Edinburgh at 6:15pm. On the watch a revolving pictorial disc tracks the landmarks which the train passed on it’s journey. So at 10am Kings Cross station is visible on the right hand side of the crescent, as the journey progresses so more landmarks appear, until at 6:15pm the Scott Monument in Edinburgh is sighted. The crescent at this moment shows the whole length of the journey with London on the left and Edinburgh on the right.
