Vingt Mille

£ 150

A watch to inspire you to have fun with your time

In homage to the fearless Captain Nemo, the Vingt Mille watch shows the dramatic attack of the giant squid from 20,000 leagues under the sea ("Vingt mille lieues sous les mers" in the original title).

The endless battle between squid and man depicts the time, from hour to hour each appears to be gaining the upper hand.

The two men being held by the squid indicate the hours and minutes.

Vingt Mille was designed for Mr Jones Watches by award-winning designer and illustrator Fanny Shorter. She created the original artwork in pen and ink and we reduced it down to the micro scale of the watch face.
