Average Day watch, tells more than just the actual time




Watches have come a long way from being just a time-telling accessory. It has taken many forms and has been equipped with various functionalities to stay relevant in the digital world. But instead of following the current “SmartWatch” trend, watch manufacturer Mr. Jones has taken a different step with the Average Days.

For starters, Average Days gives you a 24-hour view which is rather unconventional for an analog timepiece. But what really makes this watch special is that besides telling the time, it also gives you an idea of how much time an average person spends on a particular activity on a specific time of the day. Hence, the name Average Days.

Now if you think that the Mr. Jones just came up with some random minutes/hours for the Average Days, they didn’t. They actually got the data from the Centre for Time Use Research who surveyed people on how much time they typically spend on different tasks all throughout the day.


Mr. Jones Average Days specs:
Case: 316L stainless steel
Strap: Black leather with dark grey stitching
Smallest strap diameter:150mm
Largest strap diameter: 205mm
Width (3 o’clock to 9 o’clock): 37mm
Height (from lug to lug): 46mm
Mechanism: Ronda 515-24H quartz mechanism
Waterproof: 5ATM

This limited edition timepiece (only 100 of which is made) is sold for USD200 a pop. That comes with a year’s worth of warranty and will come in fancy packaging which “features specially commissioned artwork by illustrator Fanny Shorter.”

    I think it’s a must have for watch collectors like my dad.

    Gimmicky, and definitely overly Western-centric. Unless they have country-specific dials, time usage differs drastically across different cultures. A typical Japanese day would be different from a typical American day.

    Even if they have country-specific dials, statistics will outweigh the usefulness of the dial. For example, most of the people who would wear this doodad over here – Makati-type professionals – should have their dials compared to the “average” Filipino – day-laborer or a farmer/fisherman.

    As for BPO specialists, they’d best stay away from this gimmick – unless they want to spend a good deal of their working hours staring at a watch that says “sleeping”.

    As for the watch itself…meh. 24 hour dials have been done before, never really caught on. The 12-hour analog watch dial is pretty much similar to the QWERTY keyboard – it’s what everyone’s used to and probably won’t change for the forseeable future.
