Mr Jones - Sun and Moon Kirsten Ulve Gold
This product is currently sold out.
Mr Jones 46-G6-3 unisex Sun and Moon Kirsten Ulve Gold quartz watch featuring a gold PVD coated stainless steel case and gold PVD coated stainless steel mesh strap. Sun and Moon shows the time based on the position of the sun or moon in the sky on the watch face.
The crescent shaped sky on the dial represents 12 hours with the time running from left to right. At 6am the sun ‘rises’ on the left of the dial. The sun slowly climbs in the sky until it reaches the apex of the crescent midday. The sun gradually descends until it reaches the right hand marker at 6pm. After 6pm the Sun ‘sets’ and disappears from view, meanwhile the Moon ‘rises’ on the left. The position of the Moon in the sky therefore shows the hours from 6pm until 6am. Along with the image of the Sun and Moon, the hour disk features a revolving image with scenes of the natural world that gradually passes as the day progresses. The minutes are displayed in the centre dial and these run in the conventional way, so each marker on this dial corresponds to five minutes.
This special edition of Sun and Moon was created for Mr Jones by New York artist and illustrator Kirsten Ulve, “I like the notion of doing away with specific time telling, and embracing a more relaxed attitude. Symbols indicate the general time: dreamy unicorn sightings in the morning, the universal quest for cheese in the day, then some heavy drinking in the evening, followed by a bump in the night and monsters in the wee hours. Typical day kind of stuff without the need for those bothersome numbers."
