Xavier explains his inspiration behind the design:

Forests are full of mysteries. In the dark our mind plays tricks on us and tiny noises can seem terrifying!

Night Howl was created in close collaboration with the team at Mr Jones Watches.

We wanted to create something that evoked the spirit of the forest at night, with some of the animals for whom the dark forest is the safest place.

The man endlessly circles the tree searching for a ghost, sometimes he catches it in the beam of his torch, but can he be sure of what he saw?
