This is the larger version of the popular watch the Last Laugh Tattoo. At 45mm, the case is the largest of the Mr Jones Watches collection and is perfectly proportioned for your wrist.
The time on this watch is displayed on the skull's teeth - the two front teeth show the hours while the lower jaw shows the minutes. 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 the moment while we're here.
This version of The Last Laugh features specially commissioned artwork by British Tattoo Artist Adrian Willard: “The design comes from the Mexican Day of the Dead festival. The festival focuses on gathering to remember friends and family who have died. Many gifts and offerings are handed out including sugar skulls that are given to both the living and the dead. It has become a very popular image in the tattoo world over the years and has replaced the regular skull in the mainstream tattoo trends.”
The watch is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement. This means there is no battery. The motion of wearing the watch provides the power to wind it up and keep it running. The watch movement also has a 'jump-hour' feature, so the hour flips over exactly on the 59-00 minute transition.
