Mr Jones - Motochrono
This product is currently sold out.
Mr Jones Watches teamed up with custom motorcycle creators Untitled Motorcycles to create Motochrono. The watch has a moving frieze that shows a day in the life of Untitled Motorcycles as they take an old, neglected motorbike and breathe new life into it.
On Motochrono you read the time based on the position of the yellow headlight or red tail light in the crescent on the dial. The crescent represents 12 hours with the time running from left to right. The headlight marks the hours from 6am to 6pm, when it sinks from view as the red tail light rises on the left, so the tail light marks the hours from 6pm through to 6am.
In the centre of the dial are the minute and seconds hands, these work in the conventional manner. The markers around the dial are based on the classic English speedometer designed by Smiths, who by happy coincidence also manufactured a line of watches. Even the strap was created especially for this watch with the transversal stitching echoing the padding on a motorcycle seat.
The movement that powers motochrono is a mechanical automatic, which means it has no batteries and no digital technology. Just like a motorbike engine it can be stripped down, serviced and reassembled to keep it running for a lifetime.
