It is the start of a new month, which means it is time for the September 2015 giveaway, a Mr Jones Watches Sun and Moon Miyamoto. I did a quick review of the limited edition, and then the brand sent me the version that is in the permanent collection for a hands on review. If you are a fan of the various Mario Brothers video games, or just like whimsical watches, this would be a watch for you.
The watch is a quartz three hander, but the hour hand is a 24-hour disk with a sun for a daylight hour hand and moon for the night time hours. As the disk spins, the sun or moon will line up with the 12 hour markers on the top half of the watch, indicating the daylight or evening hours. In the top image, it is 10:29 AM. In the image above, it is 37 minutes past midnight.
We have featured a few Mr Jones Watches on our pages, but this was the first time I have actually been able to check out the build quality of the product. As I stated in my review, this watch was a little small for my tastes, but the quality of the watch was great I would have no problem recommending it to anyone who wants something fun in this size.

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.
