The Zombie Pizza

This gruesome design was created for us by Mariana Calderón to celebrate the macabre world of the horror comic.
The watch depicts a possessed pizza with a range of revolting toppings: eyeballs, intestines and human limbs combined with traditional cheese and tomato to make a unique delicacy!
How to read the time:
- To find the hour, check the position of the severed finger
- To find the minutes, check the position of the fly
Mariana explains her inspiration for the design:
“I feel that being playful about something as scary as death has always been part of my life. Humour is a way of dealing with the fragility of our own bodies.
Through bright colours, a cartoon style and repetition, things as gory as eyeballs and severed fingers can become humorous.
These light-hearted depictions are ingrained in the Mexican visual culture, which celebrates death as an ever-present, not as something ominous but rather as a mundane fact.
I see The Zombie Pizza as a tribute to the extravagant eighties body horror films, in tune with the Mexican way of transforming the mysteries of death into a colourful joke.”
The Zombie Pizza was made by us here in London, each layer of the design was printed individually, before being hand-assembled by our talented small team.

Originally from Mexico, Mariana Calderón is a London-based Art Conservator and a valued member of the Mr Jones Watches production team.
Either in illustration, costume jewellery or written crime fiction, the core of her work is bold and unusual combinations that feature pop culture elements.
With a BA in Fine Art, the physicality of traditional drawing techniques fits her style: heavy on saturated colours, defined ink lines and comic book influences.
She had always been interested in fashion and wearable objects since whatever we choose to wear tells an intimate story about ourselves.
Mariana is constantly taking on new challenges and is excited by new ways of expressing her ideas: change and versatility are a constant in her life.
