Mr Jones Latest Creation Brings The Garden To Your Wrist

Mr Jones Latest Creation Brings The Garden To Your Wrist

Mr Jones Watches has launched a metallic gilded watch celebrating the beauty of English gardens to its permanent collection. 

Featuring a striking golden bee at the centre of the dial, The Golden Hour is a love letter to the quintessential English garden. British artist, Andy Wilx, was inspired by the classic children’s novel, The Secret Garden, when designing the watch.

The design is also a nod to the ‘Worker Bee’ motif – most famous in cities like Manchester UK and in countries like France – which honours craftsmanship and work ethic. 

It also features a moving bed of foliage and flora, including a large red flower which shows the minutes and a red sundial that points to the hours. The seconds revolve beneath the bee giving a sense of motion in the illustrated garden. 

“The formal English garden has always been a source of inspiration: with its symmetrical borders, manicured lawns and avenues of topiary. Statues, fountains and sundials entangled in ivy and rose. Butterflies and bees busying themselves. Rabbits and birds popping in and out of secret hiding places. In this design I tried to capture the balance between the geometric and the organic in a landscaped garden and the magical allure of The Secret Garden. The Bee is one of my favourite motifs. The Honeybee characterises craftsmanship and honest toil, while the Queen Bee symbolises royalty and nobility.”

Andy Wilx, Artist

Liberated by the fact that most people check the time on their mobile phones or smart devices, Mr Jones Watches specialises in playful and eye-catching designs that each has its own unique way to tell the time. 

The Golden Hour is available exclusively online Mr Jones Watches or from its Neal Street, London store.
