I have had quite the Saturday. I’ll write more about the morning in another post, but the afternoon featured possibly my briefest visit to London ever.
Earlier in the week, Mr Jones Watches announced their yearly sample sale. I attended my first one last year where my collection grew from 1 watch to 3, and now I’ve increased it again. To 6. I’m out of control.
I had planned on buying two watches – I say “planned”, but there’s always a risk of getting your hopes dashed if you go to a sample sale with expectations. I consider myself extremely lucky that I actually got the two watches I wanted.
I eyed the Cyclops straight away and mentally punched the air. Wishlist watch number 1 – check! It was one of the very first MJW watches I’d ever seen and is so iconic and pretty. If you’re interested, the time on it is about 2:30. I never need to know exactly what time it is.
Wishlist watch number 2 – check! The King has been on my mind since it was released almost a year ago. There is a slight mark on the strap of this which doesn’t really bother me, but I could always buy a new strap I suppose. Again, precision in telling the time isn’t important, but this time is 3:25 ish (I think, I haven’t quite figured this one out yet).
And finally, the surprise of the day – The New Decider. I haven’t ever seen this one before, but from what I’ve gathered from my in depth online research, it was released about 8 years ago. The little white circle clicks from YES to NO – “when you need to make a decision you simply look at your watch for your answer”. I just really love the simplicity and could not leave it behind. I also loved this:
Number 1! I hope this is the really number 1 and not an odd sample sale quirk (don’t tell me if it’s not!!)
It was more money than I intended to spend, but I would have regretted leaving any of them behind. I am so happy with my little collection.
