In the Stars

Chart your travels, trips and grocery runs with this exquisite Planisphere Watch, a time-telling chart that maps the night sky. Frequently used by the Ancient Greeks to navigate via stars and constellations, the Planisphere finds its roots in astronomy. Though with a Japanese-Quartz movement and glowing Swiss dial (glows for up to three hours), this modern wonder makes star spotting more an exercise in style, not astrophysics. Water resistant up to 3 ATM. Sport rubber band with steel accents.

In this case, it doesn't matter that it's hard to tell time on this watch. That's not what it's for. It's to look beautiful and generate a lot of compliments :)

    Comments about PLANISPHERE WATCH:

    Should be noted: The clock face glows in the dark for use during the evening (when stars are visible). It takes a bit of getting used to in order to tell the time, but you can also rotate the outer face if you have any serious trouble with it.

    Comments about PLANISPHERE WATCH:

    The constilations are easy to read, but it is impossible to tell time. If you tell time on your phone, and are looking for a sleek interesting watch, it's for you. If you need to tell time with it, maybe not so much.

      This watch is beautiful and unique. We bought it as a gift for my husband's father who is very interested in astronomy. He loved it! It was the perfect gift for a person who is very hard to shop for.

          Comments about PLANISPHERE WATCH:

          This is a very interesting watch, a very nice product for anyone who likes looking in the sky. I've owned it for about a year, no problems yet. The glow-in-the-dark face allows you to read the constellation names for a good period of time (pretty bright). Sometimes hands are hidden behind the movable crescent plate on front, but that's the sacrifice for having a map of the sky on your wrist.

              Comments about PLANISPHERE WATCH:

              This product is nothing as described. The text on the dial and face are ridiculously small. Half the time face is always covered so you have to move it to see what time it is. It DOES NOT GLOW in the dark. I tried numerous times exposing it for hours and nothing. Total waste of money.
