Celebrate the moment, with the limited edition Houseparty watch.
Designed for us by Artist and Illustrator Catarina Morais, it shows a vibrant crowd having fun and celebrating together.
The time is cleverly integrated within the house party scene:
- The hour is displayed in the mirrorball
- The central character points up to musical notes, and a pair of glasses which represent the minutes as follows:
We are proud to count Catarina amongst the small team here at Mr Jones Watches, where she works assembling watches.
She was also responsible for the beautiful murals that decorate our Neal Street store.
Catarina explains her inspiration:
"This concept of an illustrated house party originated during the pandemic - it came mainly from a place of longing, and from being isolated from human connection with many of those I care about.
I was just starting to develop a more personal and consistent artistic style, and the concept of connections and intertwining appealed to me deeply, heightened by the circumstances.
‘Houseparty’ captures a moment - it’s a relatable scene, that brings us all back to our own memories and experiences.
The musical notes fly from speaker to speaker as the hours sparkle in the reflections of the disco ball."
This watch is available exclusively from Mr Jones Watches in a numbered edition of 200 pieces, when you purchase, you will be assigned a number at random.
Purchases are strictly limited to one per person for this edition watch. We don think it fair people buy resell them at a higher price so please do or will be forced block your orders.
Houseparty is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement. This means the motion of wearing your watch provides the power to wind it up and keep it running.
If you don’t wear your watch for a few days then the mechanism will run down and stop, but don’t worry - it’s simple to get it going again.
Just give the winding crown a few turns to start it running, set the hands to the correct time and put it on your wrist - it’ll build up power as you go about your day.

Shipping guide for t-shirts:
All t-shirts on our website are now printed and shipped by an external supplier inside the United States. This means that if you place an order for both a watch and a t-shirt, they will be shipped separately.
Our supplier uses a tracked service for all shipments and this usually takes a little longer than our watches. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.
During busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare). These delivery times are a guide based on the Fedex and Royal Mail terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
