This watch was designed by Belgian illustrator Kristof Devos to enjoy the moment

Kristof explains his inspiration:

"Ironically, it took time to change the way I look at time. A few years ago, I read a quote by the Chinese writer, translator, linguist and philosopher Lin Yutang, that I've kept close to my heart ever since:

'If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learnt how to live'.

So when designing this watch, I took that quote as a starting point. The quote taught me the value of doing nothing at all every once in a while.

One of the ways I love wasting time is by floating around, with my eyes closed, letting the water be my guide".

How to read the time:

-The reclining figure's stretched out leg points to the hour

-The tiny plastic duck floats around pointing to the minutes

A perfectly useless afternoon was made by Mr Jones Watches in London UK, each layer of the design was printed individually, before being hand-assembled by their talented, small team.

About the artist:

Kristof Devos is a Belgium Illustrator and Author. The core of his work is as a picture-book illustrator. He creates books for children of all ages on themes such as friendship, death and standing up for yourself.

His work has been described as both quirky and modest. Once in a while he puts down his pencil and takes to the stage, giving public talks on diverse themes such as inspiration and imagination.

Kristof's work has been translated into a number of different languages and his books are available in a number of countries around the world.

His illustrations have been shown both domestically and in several international exhibitions. His work has received multiple rewards, including a "White Raven", a "3x3 Mag Merit" and an "Award of Excellence" by the prestigious Commarts Competition.
