Blowball was inspired by the childhood game of telling the time by counting the puffs it takes to blow away a dandelion head. Each watch is made by Mr. Jones in London. Blowball was designed by Fanny Shorter and every color you can see in the design was mixed and printed before the discs were cut and assembled one at a time.
How it works: The individual seeds on the watch face break away and come together at different points in the day. Every time the watch reaches 12 o'clock the picture joins up to make a full dandelion head. Two flies mixed in with the seeds point to the hours and the minutes.
About the designer: Fanny Shorter is a designer and illustrator, her work is inspired by nature is usually on large scale for interiors and products, so it was an interesting challenge to scale down her work to the small size of a watch face. We're big fans of Fanny's work and she's designed Mr. Jones watches in the past including Vingt Mille and Tour Du Monde.
