We’ve brought various Mr. Jones watches to your attention this year, and today I’ve got another one for you – but it’s one that I’m not quite sure about.
The watch in question is the Time Traveller, and you can tell right off the bat that this one has something different going on. Before we get the skyline conglomeration, I want to point out that it has a true 24-hour movement inside the case. Thus, much like the AirNautic, there’s an inherent learning curve to reading the time.
Further complicating things here is how they’ve decided to implement the hour “hand”. The simplest way to describe it is to point at the image right above this paragraph. In summary, you’ll need to pick the iconic building that’s in your timezone to pick out what the time is.
On one hand, this is somewhat clever, and if you do travel around a good bit, this would possibly prevent the need to reset your watch. It could also make it easier to tell what time it is for someone you’re working with on a distributed team. For me, though, this just looks like too much clutter on the dial, and would make an already hard-to-learn 24-hour display even more complex.
If you disagree, though, you’ll want to head to the product page and order yours. With a limited edition of 100 pieces and an asking price of around $200, they could slip away quickly.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
