Mr Jones - Sun and Moon Miyamoto
This product is currently sold out.
Mr Jones 70-PV Sun and Moon Miyamoto watch featuring a brushed stainless steel case and navy and grey leather strap with pink stitching and a stainless steel clasp. Sun and Moon Minamoto shows the time based on the position of the Sun or Moon in the sky on the watch face.
This watch has graphics inspired by the world of Super Mario. The imagery on the hour disc pays homage to the cartoon unreality of Mario's landscape - a nostalgic trigger for anyone who spent their childhood exploring this strange world. The watch is named after the designer of the Super Mario games Shigeru Miyamoto.
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.
