More Memento Mori
A skull appears on this watch every time the hour and minute hand align (every hour). The remainder of the time the image is a mix of colors and shapes. The skull comes from a Hans Holbein painting called “The Ambassadors”ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å. When (and only when) the painting is viewed from a certain angle the skull suddenly appears. The watch is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize it while we are here.
The watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned artwork by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer.

Too small to enjoy

I have been looking forward to getting this watch for a while. I do not have many watches so I didn't pay close attention to the size listed but I wish I had. The watch is too small to appreciate in my opinion. The idea and skull design is great but the hands are so tiny that it is hard to read the time when the skull doesn't line up. I was thinking of buying more Mr. Jones watches but they might be too small for my taste

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.
Great quailty and excellent price

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
