The Observatory Watch

Mr Jones Watches


The Observatory Watch is from Mr Jones Watches' unique collection of timepieces. The time display on The Observatory is based on the sun and moon type pocket watches first produced in England in the late 1600s, when watchmakers experimented with ways to represent the time. Instead of hour and minute hands, The Observatory displays the time based on the position of the sun or moon around the earth. The time is read off the scale on the upper half of the face. The position of the sun indicates the hours from 6am until 6pm, while the moon represents the hours from 6pm through to 6am. The golden comet indicates the minutes as it orbits the earth. The Observatory was printed and assembled with care in the Mr Jones Watches workshop in London.
