Do you sometimes glance at your wrist only to realize that telling time is far too easy?
Mr. Jones’ Satellite watch takes the effortlessness of time telling, replacing the hour and minute with orbiting markers — perfect for the astronomy enthusiast. The limited-edition watch requires some getting used to, with a full revolution marking 24 hours. The hour marker sits on the outside the minute one because of the longer rotation. “This was inspired by the movement of celestial bodies: the more distant a planet is from the center of gravity the longer it’s orbit takes,” according toWatchismo.
The Satellite watch is also encased in a box featuring commissioned artwork of the Mayfly, which has a life cycle of 24 hours, by illustrator Fanny Shorter. It has a limited run of 100 and will be available Nov. 19 for $195.
