LIMITED EDITION - 100 PIECES
Blocks and shapes explode from the middle of the watch face to form a skull. From a distance you can clearly see the skull, but as you look closely at the design, it appears to break up and evaporate. The abstract effect is increased by the mixture of mirror and metallic inks, which are only visible when light catches the watch face. Edward describes the watch as, “A barrage of blocks running towards an endless destination. When viewed from different perspectives the skull becomes visible, reminding us that any pondering of the infinite will eventually come up against our own mortality”.
Limited edition and London made. The Vanishing Point is released in a numbered edition of 100 pieces, each watch is numbered on the back of the case. All of Mr. Jones London made watches are assembled by them and have to pass our strict time testing process before they are issued for release. Each watch was printed and built by MRJ in London. Each color was mixed by hand and laid down in turn using our pad printer.
How to tell the time: The time is displayed on the skull's teeth. The upper teeth show the hours, while the lower teeth show the minutes. Vanishing point is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement. This means there is no battery - the motion of wearing the watch provides all the power needed to wind it up and keep it running. The watch movement has a 'jump-hour' feature, so the hour flips over exactly on the 59 -> 00 minute transition.
