Research-Based Wristwatch Illuminates How You Spend Your Time

Research-Based Wristwatch Illuminates How You Spend Your Time

Watch lets you know if you sleep too much or spend too much time in front of the TV.

Instead of just telling the time, the “Average Days” watch from Mr Jones Watches can tell you how you are spending your time when compared to the average person. Whether you’re concerned about watching too much TV, not exercising enough, or sleeping in too late, now you can know for sure with this unique time piece.

The watch uses a 24 hour mechanism which means the hour hand makes one complete rotation of the dial in 24 hours. The watch is read slightly differently from a regular (12 hour) watch as detailed in the graphic on the right. The minute hand works in the conventional manner, so it makes one revolution of the dial every 60 minutes.


Each section was mapped using an updated and customized data set provided by Professor Jonathan Gershuny, the Director of the Centre for Time Use Research, so you can be sure none of the information is made up. Even though the data was based on a survey of over 5,000 people, that still leaves a lot of room for speculation, which means you don’t have to feel too guilty if you lay in for an hour longer than most people.

Average Days cost approximately $230 and is available as a limited edition run of 100 pieces.
