Indeed many of us are using our mobile devices to find out what time it is, but it’s our appreciation of fashion, tradition and status that are going to keep wristwatches around for a long time.
Our newfound dependence on ‘techno-time’ has created an opportunity for London based designer Crispin Jones: ”Now everyone carries a cellphone; the watch is liberated from it’s purely functional role and can carry some new messages and behaviors.”
Mr Jones Watches aims to create modern, dynamic and satirical watches that may or frankly may not tell the time, but always make a statement.
Mr. Jones Watches includes the collection — Master of Time — a collaboration alongside prominent British creative spirits including writer and filmaker Iain Sinclair, comedian William Andrews, artist Brian Catling, DJ Tom Middleton and cyclist Graeme Obree.
Many of the designer pieces are a limited, signed and numbered edition of 100 pieces.
