Mr. Jones Watches

A friend turned me on to Mr. Jones Watches - unconventional, limited edition (mostly sold out) watches by Crispin Jones. Perhaps a tad pessimistic in nature, some of the watches are a humorous commentary on time. Above: "The Accurate" which reminds you of your impending doom, and "More or Less" which offers you two ways of looking at time as it passes (is the glass half-empty or half-full?). If you get paid in British pounds or euros, these watches aren't so bad - £79.99. We Americans will have to wait for the dollar to get stronger...

"The Mantra" (below) alternates a positive statement with a negative one. It reminds me of those folded paper fortune tellers my friends and I used to make when we were kids.

  1. Hi everybody,

    Can somebody suggest me a better online shopping website where I can purchase the high quality, name brand watches at reasonable prices. However, I searched the web and find the resources i.e.




    where the prices are compartively low.
    Please suggest if you have some other better resources.
