Limited Edition ‘Wants vs. Needs’ Venn Diagram Watches from Mr. Jones.

Let me start by saying that the limited edition watches from Mr. Jones always sell out quickly. So, if you like this unusual timepiece, I suggest you jump on it now, since it’s limited to 100 pieces only.


Both Mens/Unisex and and Ladies styles:
Wants vs Needs comes in two sizes: a smaller ladies-specific case as well as this larger unisex size. This watch is produced in an edition of 100 pieces, with each watch individually numbered on the case back.

The Unisex or Mens watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned design by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer:

Women’s Watch Box by artist Fanny Shorter
And the women’s watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned design by artist and illustrator Fanny Shorter:

The hands on this watch are in the form of two circles, one circle is labelled “what I want” and the other “what I need”. As the circles move to mark the time, they form a Venn diagram.

The shifting relationship that the diagram depicts between “wants” and “needs” is a way for us to think about the changing nature of our own desires and their fulfilment.

The watch is a tool for questioning ourselves – how does the diagram reflect the relationship between our own wants and needs at any given time?

Case: 316L stainless steel
Mechanism: Ronda 513 quartz movement
Strap: Black leather with red stitching
Width (3 o’clock to 9 o’clock): 37mm
Height (from lug to lug): 46mm
Waterproof: 5ATM
Guarantee: 12 months
Smallest strap diameter:150mm
Largest strap diameter: 205mm

Newd Adhesive Jewelry for the Body from Italy’s Alessandro Masini.

Since I first introduced you to Italian brand NEWD in this post almost three years ago , the collection of safe self-adhesive jewelry has grown. With more more pieces and styles added to their five collections (and some no longer available), it was time to update my readers.

Newd was established in Florence in 2006 by Alessandro Masini. It’s the only company in the world that produces ‘Skin Jewels’; adhesive jewelry that is applied directly to the skin. Glamour, innovation, sensuality, femininity, creativity and individuality come together for an exciting and trendy product that really goes beyond all standards.

For those of you who don’t wish to permanently pierce or tattoo yourself , NEWD is a fun alternative for body ornamentation. They carry simple geometric shapes in various sizes, the requisite trendy shapes such as butterflies and hearts, and some bolder and more unusual pieces. White, rose, and yellow gold, polished or satin finished, gold-plated, enameled, embellished with pearls, Swarovksi crystals, precious stones and more can be applied on your back, neckline, arms, belly or wherever you deem desirable.

They have five collections of different shapes, styles and metals. Some are just simple silhouettes, some are adorned with Swarovski crystals and others with dangling gems. Here are just a few:

Once only available in Italy, you can purchase directly from NEWD here.
