The case is brushed stainless steel, with a wide bezel beveling down to an almost oval set of lugs.  The crown is nicely detailed, with the MJW logo in relief.  A matching ‘button’ is set on the opposite side of the case.  The watch ships on a leather strap, half grey and half blue (is there another watch in the line with opposite colored parts?), and contrasting pink stitching.  The color nicely matches the theme of the watch, even though grey and pink are barely used elsewhere in the watch.

Mr Jones Sun and Moon 01It is a fashion watch, selling from the Mr Jones Watches web site for about $220 USD, so the specs are going to be in line with this segment.  The movement is a Swiss Ronda 515-24H single jewel quartz movement, and the case is depth rated to 5 ATM.  The flat crystal is not specified, but my guess would be mineral glass. But it is fun.  The onlt thing that would be nice would be some lume, or even illumination.  Maybe just make the moon with lumed paint, or shoehorn in a tiny light in the bottom half of the dial to illuminate the city scape at the push of a button.  Once the lights go down, reading the watch is impossible without an outside light source.  But beyond this quibble, the Mr Jones Sun and Moon Miyamoto does a good job in filling a niche.  And if you are not a fan of the Mario Bros. games, there are three other variations on the Sun and Moon theme, as well as the Motochrono, all variations on this watch (or this watch is a variation on those…).
