Celebrating 10 years of Mr Jones Watches: a round up of events

Jul 5, 2017by Emily Weston

Mr Jones Watches ten years of watch designs

Ten years ago, British designer Crispin Jones produced five very unusual watches.

As the years have passed, the collection has grown and so has the team. To celebrate this landmark, we held an exhibition of our unusual designs in the gallery at Oxo Tower Wharf.

We moved over our London studio for the exhibition (we’re usually hidden away in Camberwell, South London). So you could see our pad printer, the inks that we’ve mix by hand, and all of the tools of watch assembly.

You could see watches being printed and built, and our team were on hand to answer questions, give demonstrations (and even some mini watch making lessons!)

We also held a treasure hunt for the event.

Each day of the exhibition, we hid an image of a watch in the local area and posted a photo of it on social media. The first person to find the photo and bring it back to the shop won a free watch!

The exhibition was a great opportunity to meet our loyal customers, new people and show off what we do best – designing and making completely unusual watches.
