Our thanks go to Watchismo for sponsoring Boing Boing Blast, our once-daily delivery of headlines by email.

Check out the most controversial watches of the Mr. Jones Watch Collection: the Fuck Cancer Watch and The Accurate Watch.

Mr. Jones Fuck Cancer Watch - Cancer is a terrifying disease that touches most of us, and this watch's message aggressively asserts that we will not let it overshadow our lives or overwhelm the human spirit. 10% of the sale price of each watch will be donated to charities that fight Cancer: Stand Up To Cancer.

Mr. Jones The Accurate Watch - This is the most accurate wristwatch you can buy, with an hour hand that reads "remember" and a minute hand that reads "you will die". The dial and rim of the glass are mirrored, so the wearer is reflected in the watch face—there is no ambiguity about who the message is aimed at! The Accurate is a link to the tradition of the memento mori, an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here. It's available in steel, limited edition black and ladies versions. See the entire collection of Mr. Jones Watches at Watchismo.com



  1. Love that’ “remember you-will die” watch.  Will buy it if at 6:00 it says, “possibly today”.

    1. At $150 I’d buy one if it was a watch that actually diagnosed what was wrong with you, and then said “Cancer, fuck” if you had cancer.
