Inspired by the adventures of Phileas Fogg in "Around the world in 80 days" (or "Tour Du Monde en 80 Jours" in the original French), two modes of transport mark the time around a central globe in this watch. The position of the ship indicates the hours and the balloon the minutes.
The constant motion around the world creates an ever changing picture on the watch face.
Tour Du Monde was designed by award-winning designer and illustrator Fanny Shorter. She produced two designs for Mr. Jones Watches inspired by the adventure stories of Jules Verne - Tour Du Monde and Vingt Mille. She created the original artwork in pen and ink which were then reduced down to the micro scale of the watch face.
