Tour Du Monde
Travel the world while checking the time.
The Tour Du Monde watch was inspired by the adventures of Phileas Fogg in “Around the world in 80 days” (or "Tour Du Monde en 80 Jours" in the original French).
Two modes of transport mark the time around a central globe.
The position of the ship show you the hour and the hot air balloon shows you the minutes.
The constant motion around the world creates an ever changing picture on the watch face.
Tour Du Monde was designed for Mr Jones Watches by award-winning designer and illustrator Fanny Shorter. She created the original artwork in pen and ink and we reduced it down to the micro scale of the watch face.
Fanny Shorter is a designer and printmaker. She grew up in the quintessentially English county town of Winchester, surrounded by historic architecture and idyllic countryside. Her upbringing formed an enduring influence on her designs and how her work is manufactured.
Fanny originally trained as an illustrator at Brighton University. In 2011 she established her eponymous range of textiles, prints and accessories from her studio at Cockpit Arts in London.
