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:
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.
