WHY WE LOVE IT
Nearly every time we see a new style from Mr. Jones Watches, we find ourselves saying, "wow, he did it again!". And by 'again', we mean he deconstructed an entirely cool new way to show time in an emotional as well as technical fashion -- most often through thoughtful collaborations with some very interesting people. Each watch Mr. Jones produces has tremendous soul and equal substance combined with a passion for timekeeping highlighting the bigger meanings in life. As a major bonus, the Colour Venn showcases (for the first time from Mr. Jones) its mechanical nature with a porthole in the caseback for a view of the balance wheel, the heart of this time machine.
Colour Venn dispenses with the convention of the hour minute and seconds hand, instead three colour discs rotate to indicate the time. Where the discs overlap, new colors are formed in the intersection creating a constantly shifting palette of color.
We developed Colour Venn with Mark Champkins, Inventor in Residence at the Science Museum in London who explains the design,
"Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are the key to recreating ANY colour on the printed page. Every shade and hue of colour in newspapers, magazines and printed material will be only ever be made up of a combination of CMYK - cyan, magenta, yellow and “key” (which is black) ink. This is known as the “Subtractive Colour Model” as the four colors of ink “subtract” from the brightness of the white surface beneath.
Colour Venn uses Venn diagram style circles of colour cyan, magenta and yellow films with different diameters correspond to the second, minute and hours. As each moves round, a continuously intersecting pattern of colour emerges, unique at every moment of the day".

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.
