British watchmaker Mr Jones Watches has reunited with artist Andy Wilx for a limited edition automatic inspired by classic children’s book, ‘The Secret Garden’.

Wilx has followed an English country garden theme for ‘The Golden Hour’ which features a central golden worker bee as a nod to the animal associated with craftsmanship in parts of the UK and France.

While the bee – which is gilded using two shades of gold leaf - remains stationary, the foliage and flowers beneath revolve, with the hours and minutes indicated by the position of a crown and sundial.

Two Shades Of Gold Leaf Bring Hovering Bee To Life As Crown And Sundial Indicate The Time

“In this design,” says Wilx, “I tried to capture the balance between the geometric and the organic in a landscaped garden and the magical allure of The Secret Garden. The bee is one of my favourite motifs. ‘The Worker Bee’ is the emblem for communities as varied as the city of Manchester and the nation of France. The honeybee characterises craftsmanship and honest toil, while the Queen bee symbolises royalty and nobility.”

Inside the 45mm black-coated stainless steel case is a Swiss made STP1-11 automatic movement.

The 100-piece The Golden Hour watch is available now via Mr Jones, priced $495 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Tudor scales down its Pelagos for wider audience.
