The Observatory watch by Mr Jones

If astronomy is your thing, you might just want to own The Observatory watch by Mr Jones.

On this particular watch, the time is read from the position of the Sun or Moon around the central image of the Earth. Ok, it might get some getting used to, but when you do, it'll be easy enough - and very eye-catching to friends and passers-by too.

According to designer Crispin Jones: "With this design I wanted to explore a different aesthetic - the photograph of the earth seen from space is printed as a four colour separation, something we've never tried before. It was a really special moment when we laid down the fourth colour and the image suddenly came to life!'

If you want it to come to life on your wrist, this limited edition watch (just 100 pieces) is available now, priced at £160. See more images and detail at the Mr Jones website.
