The face of this watch depicts the ancient, mythological character of The Green Man. The time is displayed on The Green Man’s teeth - the upper jaw shows the hours and the lower the minutes. The watch has a jump-hour mechanical mechanism, so the hour display flips automatically as the minutes pass from 59 to 0.
The watch is a celebration of the cycle of renewal, in mythology The Green Man is associated with the end of Winter and the arrival of Spring. In England the character is most often encountered today as the name of a pub - a link between the ancient and modern folk culture!
The design of the character was inspired by the work of William Morris, the pre-eminent Victorian print designer, who also had a great passion for the English mystical and folk traditions.
The Green Man was produced in our London workshop. We printed all the components and assembled and regulated each watch in turn. You can see a series of photographs of the production process here.
