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.
If you want to win this watch, all you have to do is:
- Comment below on this post with a line about what makes a whimsical watch for you, and
- Head over to the contest page and answer a simple question about the brand.
We do match up the name we select with a comment, so you have to comment below to have a valid entry. Though it is not required, head over to the Mr Jones Watches web store, check them out on facebook, and like our page on facebook as well.

There aren’t many cartoony, whimsical timepieces that would typically grab my attention, but this one does it. C’mon, who doesn’t love old school Mario Bros!
Anything that makes me look twice when I check the time! One of my favorites is actually the Mr Jones Observatory. That sun-moon 24 hour dial is amazing!
Its all about Mario, I can hear its tune in my head when looking at this watch!
Quite honestly, probably a plastic cased swatch would be my whimsical watch…..but i would much rather see this miyamoto on my wrist.
An unusual blend of atypical colors and shapes that don’t make sense at first, but slowly come together the longer you look at the watch
A whimsical watch for me is one that combines the expected wearable aesthetic with a colourful and strong characterful design that is unique but also useful as a timekeeper and/or as a tool.
A whimsical watch makes me smile every time I see it. Mr Jones certainly achieves that!
A whimsical watch is something that shows that you have a bit of a sense of humor and don’t take yourself too seriously.
A whimsical watch has cartoons.
I think a whimsical watch has a sense of humor to it. It makes you look twice and smile.
I Love this watch have never seen one like it
A whimsical watch is something playful and colourful that stands out in a fun, eccentric way.
looks like a fun 24 hour watch.
Something that is fun and quirky design.
For me a whimsical watch is something I could show off to others and watch them express genuine interest.
Amazing! A must-have for all Mario fans!
In my mind, a well done whimsical watch is sort of like a well done concept album: it must competently express some theme above the medium’s framework. MJW totally succeeds at this and I would love to have this piece in my rotation.
A good start to a collection
I have mixed emotions about MJW watches (the design doesn’t usually seem to “fit” me), but this one is pretty interesting!
Very cool design on the dial.
Whimsical would be Snoopy on an Omega.
Ive never considered wearing Mario Brothers, but this watch is awesome!
Very nice watches!
These watches are definitely for me
I love the design and use to play Mario Bros all the time back in the day!
What makes it whimsical for me is I take care of an elderly gentleman who just turned 95 On the 19th of last month. We have lots of discussions on several subjects, one of them is the sundial. Now that watch would get a good long conversation started with us! Lol I mean long!!!! We would be excited ????
This watch would look good on my arm, and the younger patients at work would just love it. Maybe they wouldn’t think i was so old next to them after all. would make me smile at times of stress.
So unique and one of a kind, playful and arty.
Love the light, childish colours, the cartoon design, the unusual way of telling the time and how the time of day matches with the image on the dial.
Super classy with a “childish” theme! Love it.
Anything with abstract and colorful design
All the Disney-themed ones
Glad I found out about this. Mr Jones Watches are definitely fun and colourful. I’m particularly impressed by the thought put into the design, as in this one, as in the Ambassador.
Whimsical is a watch that has a sense of humor about itself and doesn’t take itself and its functions too seriously!
Nice prize to win
Wow, I have never seen this type of watch before. It is really interesting.
This a really cool watch
A very neat watch
A watch is whimsical to me if it’s original and colourful with a little bit of fun infused.
It would be great to have a watch with a back story!
This looks super cool. BTW My actual name is Kayla Denton, so it will match up with my Entry : )
I love that the face changes pictures a.m. vs. p.m.
I would really consider anything that’s video game-inspired to be “whimsical”, this is great though because of the nostalgia factor, it brings back memories of being a kid and playing Nintendo after school.
Would love to win this for my husband!
These are some very cool and unique watches!~
When it has something unexpected, which this watch does.
Love the look of the dial and the size is great as well.
a whimsical watch for me is something fun and out of the ordinary
I like the fact that it is unique with the half dial thing going on and it is simply elegant
For me a watch must bring some nostalgic memories to be whimsical.
It’s one of the most unique watches I have ever seen. Awesome giveaway! :3
So creative and modern. Love it! Thanks for the opportunity!
Something that is fun and cartoonish.
I really like the look of the watches!
Such a cool watch.
It does seem a little small, but I love the graphics
A very interesting watch
When it comes to whimsy, I like to see a watch that doesn’t take itself too seriously and also doesn’t try to hide its whimsy. This one works on both levels.
This watch is so nice!
The design is what makes a whimsical watch for me.
I love this, cool design!
The dial is what I look for in fun watches. A Patek is wonderful for it’s elegance, this is wonderful for it’s fun!
I think the watchface and the strap influence a watch’s whimsy!
What a cool looking watch, totally different.
A whimsical watch throws out any pretense of telling time in the conventional way and instead challenges the wearer to not only read but think about time in a new way. Mario-influence meets minimalism!
This watch is out of this world!
A whimsical watch isn’t afraid to play with colors, whether it’s on the dial or with the strap.
Love phase watches!
