The Promise of Happiness
This watch is available in either silver or black, choose your favourite version in the dropdown box above.
Track the time like a tiger with this miniature jungle scene.
This unique watch encourages you to have fun with your time.
The playful tiger looks to the moon for the hour and you’ll find the minutes camouflaged within his stripes.
This intricate piece of wearable artwork was hand-painted for us by Fanny Shorter.
We then printed each colour of the design layer by layer, and assembled the watch in our London workshop.
The layered print on the watch, makes the time completely integrated within the jungle scene.
How to read the time
The moon in the night sky will show you the hour, the minutes pass through the tigers stripes.
The watch also has a jump hour feature, so the hour flips in the moon, exactly on the 59 > 00 minute shift, blink and you’ll miss it!
