Gather ’round gentleman, because the horological world just got a whole lot more intriguing. Mr Jones Watches, the avant-garde watch brand renowned for its playful and unique timepieces, has saved the best for last. It has just released its final limited-edition watch of the year, and it’s set to captivate the hearts of those who appreciate the finer things in life. Say hello to “Houseparty,” a limited-edition creation inspired by the charm of cozy winter soirées, designed to adorn the wrists of discerning men.

Before we dive into the captivating details of the Houseparty watches for men, it’s only fair to pay homage to the brilliant designer, Catarina Morais. Morais, a Portuguese, London-based illustrator, has crafted a timepiece that is not only an instrument of timekeeping but a work of art. Her creative journey, which includes prior contributions to Mr Jones Watches, is a testament to her talent and the inspiration that blossomed during challenging times.

As for how she came up with the visuals for these watches, Morais said, “This concept of an illustrated house party originated during the pandemic — it came mainly from a place of longing, and from being isolated from human connection with many of those I care about.” She added, “Houseparty captures a moment — it’s a relatable scene that brings us all back to our own memories and experiences. The musical notes fly from speaker to speaker as the hours sparkle in the reflections of the disco ball.”

Capturing the essence of connection: The Houseparty concept

The Houseparty watch is more than just a timepiece; it’s a visual narrative that transports us to the heart of a lively soirée. Morais beautifully encapsulates the essence of connections and intertwining, a theme that resonates deeply with the circumstances we’ve all faced. The picture on the dial takes one into a different world full of color and life, as if the pandemic never happened.

You might be wondering how one tells the time on a watch adorned with a bustling party scene. Houseparty features a jump hour function, a clever way to indicate the current hour. The number inside the disco ball changes with each passing hour, and for the minutes, the watch’s central character points to musical notes and Champagne glasses, ingeniously representing the minutes. It’s a playful and eye-catching method of timekeeping that aligns perfectly with Mr Jones Watches’ philosophy.

Defying the smartphone era: The purpose of Mr Jones Watches

In an age where the majority of people turn to their smartphones for the time, Mr Jones Watches boldly stands out. Its timepieces are not just functional; they’re conversation starters and pieces of art. The Houseparty watch epitomizes this philosophy, serving as an artistic statement and a narrative, all while keeping time. It’s a declaration that you value individuality and the merging of art and function.

Now, for the details that matter. Houseparty is exclusively available from Mr Jones Watches and is strictly limited to 200 pieces, ensuring exclusivity for those who appreciate craftsmanship. With a price tag of $295, it’s an affordable luxury within reach. Now, let’s dive into the technical specifications of the Houseparty watch because it’s not just about aesthetics; it’s about precision and performance.

The timepiece features sapphire glass, known for its exceptional durability and resistance to scratches, ensuring your watch face remains pristine even after years of use. Housed in a sturdy stainless steel case, the watch exudes reliability and longevity, perfect for the modern man on the move. With a width of 37 mm from 3 o’clock to 9 o’clock and a height of 46 mm from lug to lug, it strikes the perfect balance between presence and wearability. The 18 mm stainless steel strap combines style and strength, completing the look with a touch of sophistication. It’s not afraid of a little water either, with a 5 ATM water resistance rating, so light rain won’t pose a threat.

All in all, it’s an affordable watch that is certainly a conversation starter and adds an extra bit of cool to those hipster outfits we all love so much, or simply a suit if that’s more your jam.

Oris 2024 Holstein edition

When you're between the ages of 1 and, let's say, 13, birthdays are a big deal; your friends come over, there's a big cake and candles, perhaps a magician or a clown shows up to scare everyone, and if you're lucky, it takes place at a roller rink or a bowling alley. Well, Oris watches are turning 120, meaning they've matured quite a bit since the days of party hats and streamers. The Swiss watchmaker has released a Hölstein Edition (named after its hometown) every year for the past five years in order to celebrate its anniversary, with just 250 pieces. Oris uses these Hölstein Editions every year to create some truly head-turning watches, and this year is no different.

Oris watches made 2024 even more special since they hit the big 1-2-0 and gave their ever-popular retro dive watch, the Divers Sixty-Five, an all-black makeover. And when we say "all black," we literally mean all black with not an accent color in sight minus the date window, which is printed in white (after reading that, Batman said, "No, thanks.")

There are very few watches that make us feel like we're traversing the Milky Way on our own little rocketship, eyes mesmerized at all the colors and galaxies, minus the Omega x Swatch Bioceramic MoonSwatch Collection that was quite obviously inspired by several planets. G-Shock is one brand that doesn't shy away from gradient colors or space themes, as the newest watch follows earlier models like the MTG-B3000PRB-1A Northern Light and the MTG-B3000FR Solar Flares. The new G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A will quite literally have you feeling like you're millions of miles away, floating through space, or at least taking in the Northern Lights from a cold mountain somewhere in Norway.

The new, limited edition G-Shock Diffuse Nebula MTGB3000DN1A is not only made for those who appreciate astronomy and the universe at large but even the occasional stargazer who is mesmerized by the beauty of outer space. This G-Shock watch captures celestial beauty with its wide spectrum of color, from shimmering royal purple to deep blue, reminiscent of interstellar gas clouds.

Continuing on with the aesthetics of this new G-Shock, the stainless-steel bezel is finished with a gradation ion plating (IP) process which is what creates the gradient colors you see. The IP crown and screws are rose gold which looks slightly out of place but does add a certain warmth to the watch that some might feel is missing.

RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

If you're the average guy with 1-2 watches from brands like Omega, TAG Heuer, or Tissot in your closet, then a Christie's auction will certainly be shocking for you. The auction house is gearing up for its "Important Watches" auction at Rockefeller Center on June 10, where they will showcase 118 spectacular pieces, and when we say "spectacular," we're talking more than the price of your house and all your friend's houses combined.
Christie's auction: Richard Mille 56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire

The main attraction at this auction is a limited-edition Richard Mille watch that's expected to be the most expensive ever sold by Christie's New York. This particular model, the RM56-02 Tourbillon Sapphire, is one of only 10 ever made and is expected to fetch up to $4 million dollars; that's a lot of zeros. This Richard Mille watch was first released back in 2014 and is famous for its use of sapphire, which provides an unmatched level of transparency in which you can see the skeletonized tourbillon within. Each 3-part sapphire case took 40 days to produce, with the sapphire bridges requiring 400 hours of labor. To put that into perspective, 2 whole weeks have 336 hours.
