Night Watchman

Follow the stars--and the sun, moon and planets--with this timely spin on the astrolabe, an ancient astronomical tool used by navigators in the first century to track their movement via the skies. Expertly printed in the face of a watch, this functioning astrolabe lets you explore the universe on your lunch break. Watch features Japanese-Quartz movement and glowing Swiss dial (glows for up to three hours) with a sport rubber band. Water resistant up to 3 ATM.

Item came quickly both times. Battery went out too soon and it's a 10 atm watch, needs proper battery replacement, but uncommon can only send out new watches

    Comments about ASTROLABE WATCH:

    This watch is very beautiful. You can even switch bands if you'd like to with the watch. I purchased this for my Husband for Christmas and he loved it. However after 2 weeks of using the watch it completely fell apart the hands on the clock fell off. This watch is also more so made for asthetic reasons than anything it isn't a real astro watch it does not really cacluate stars/planets/etc. As beatuiful as it is it ain't worth a dime.

      Comments about ASTROLABE WATCH:

      It was hard to read the instructions, as they seemed to be for another watch entirely. There are confusing time settings and the star information is decorative. I'm exchanging it so I can give a better gift to my boyfriend.

      Comments about ASTROLABE WATCH:

      THere are no instructions on its use. I'm not sure what the purpose of the outer dial is. It's hard to read the hour and minute hands. Finally, it's a bit uncomfortable to wear, since the outer dial is metal and digs into my skin when I turn my arm and wrist around. To wear it is to understand what I'm describing.

      Comments about ASTROLABE WATCH:

      The story that was enclosed made giving the gift complete (i.e., I didn't have to explain). Very interesting concept and a fun novelty watch. Just make sure the recipient isn't looking to make meetings on time with this as not intended for that use. Quality and style are good.

      A totally unique, special gift! My boyfriend has a love for the stars & he absolutely loved it! The clock itself is a bit odd to read but as soon as you know how it works it's great. It can spice up any casual outfit he has on or make a dressy one look more fun... Definitely recommend!
