Mr Jones Watches – Vertigo

Whilst I continue to mess around with my photos from my recent trip to Texas, I thought I’d post a little update to my Mr Jones Watches collection.

A quick recap – here’s my post about first watch.  And then I bought number two and three.  Covered off four, five, and six on one busy day last year.  Quickly followed up with number seven.  Eight, nine, and ten had to be done to celebrate their 10th birthday.  Eleven appeared one Christmas.  And finally, twelve, thirteen, and fourteen were covered off here.

Earlier this month and unbeknownst to me, Husband made a visit to the Oxo Tower on his lunch break and bought a new addition for my collection.  We were staying in a hotel room that night after going to a comedy gig, and he hid the box under my pillow so I’d find it when we got back.  Unfortunately, I was so tired (and the bed was so comfy) that I didn’t notice and slept on it all night!  Fortunately, no damage was done by the time I found it the next morning.  

Prior to his purchase, I had been debating about buying the Vertigo – specifically, which colour combination I preferred.  I had been through each of the 100 images multiple times, and finally had my top 5.  It was really hard to choose though – I loved all of the pink and purple tones, but also the yellows and turquoises.  The artist Paul Wardski has created such a beautiful design, and it’s unlike any of the other watches I have.

Lucikily, Husband knew the one I wanted and it was still in stock when he visited.  I’ve worn it non-stop, and every so often I get mesmerised by the detail.  It’s a very distracting watch.

I do love a numbered watch
