Mr Jones - The Ambassador
This product is currently sold out.
Mr Jones 53-L7 unisex The Ambassador quartz watch featuring a black PVD coated stainless steel case and black leather strap with blue stitching. A skull appears on the dial every time the hour and minute hand align. The remainder of the time the image is an apparently disordered mix of colours and shapes.
The skull is drawn from the Hans Holbein the Younger painting, The Ambassadors. On the painting the skull appears distorted and elongated. When the painting is viewed from an acute angle the image resolves into the correct perspective. This watch is intended as a homage to Holbein - the sudden appearance of the skull on the watch has the same sense of a jolting suprise.
The watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned design by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer.
