Jowett Jupiter - Watchified

No Jowett Jupiter in the garage! How about one for the wrist?The Jowett Jupiter MkI...what a fabulous car. These were made by Jowett Cars of Bradford, England in the early 50s. Total production was only 900 cars, of which probably 4 or 5 hundred still survive.
I probably won't ever own a Jupiter, since I don't have an extra 30-grand lying around. So this watch will have to do! I've designed these to resemble the Jowett speedometer of the period and splashed a pretty red Jupiter right across the top.
This Jowett Jupiter Wristwatch, as well as a identical design clock, is available at my eBay store, All-4-Corners.
