It is Halloween and you should expect something scary today. How about a tasty little watch treat that reminds you that you are going to die each time you look at it. It is called “The Accurate” by the ever so quirky Mr. Jones Watches brand out of London. The source of the watch name should be obvious – as the reminder on the watch is the surest thing in life. The watch will never prove wrong.
The execution of the morbid message is clever as the words are spelled out in the hands – you can’t even ignore them if you want to, because there they are each time you check the time. Here is an idea for the upcoming holiday season. Do you have any relatives (or maybe other people in your life) that you just want to go away. Well get them one of these watches. Priced at under $150, isn’t it worth the experience of seeing the look on their face when you strap this new watch to their wrist. “Keep your eyes shut. I don’t want you looking until I’ve glued put the watch on you!”
The minimalist design of the watch is even done to ensure that you will check out the depressing message each time you check the time. The watch even goes a step further than the unpleasant “note to self.” The dial of the watch is a mirror. So that when you are looking at the time, you see the woeful words with your images floating behind them as your get to enjoy watching your reflecting react with anything from a smirk to expressing sorrow.
Ask Mr. Jones watches what this is all about and they will give you an interesting story. The idea for them is a watch that reminds you to take advantage of life while you still have it. Isn’t that what we are doing anyway? I guess British people need to be reminded of these things. Personally, this is about as scary as I want a watch to get on Halloween.
If you are interesting in maybe getting one of these downers they are not expensive at $135. The watch is not too big at 35mm wide, and a long 46mm tall. The case is in steel, and has those nice long, curved lugs. Likely a mineral crystal with 50 meters of water resistance and a quartz movement inside. It comes with a nice box and a black leather strap with contrast white stitching. I must admit that the retro chic styled watch isn’t half bad. I even like how Mr. Jones Watches designed the dial and hands, but the message is fearful in my opinion. For a sure way to scare the neighbor’s kids this year, this watch is your best bet.
