The motion is the STP1-11 computerized caliber, a strong motion that has executed time in watches made by Zodiac, Serica, and different manufacturers. It’s seen by means of the show caseback, which options the identify of the watch and its designer, in addition to that rubber duck. More often than not I’m not a fan of manufacturers layering textual content or graphics over a show caseback, however i feel I could make an exception for the rubber duck on this case.

A fast look by means of their web site reveals that lots of their watches are bought out, and awaiting a restock, they usually have a rising variety of mechanical items, that are more likely to at all times be the desire of lovers and collectors. I additionally sense that the watch neighborhood is transferring on from homogenous, classic impressed divers and comparable kinds of watches which have dominated over the previous few years, and quirky, design ahead watches like these made by Mr Jones might need a chance to realize some extra traction.
