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.

Made from
reclaimed steel, rubber
Measurements
Face: 1.75" Dia. Band 10" L x .75" W x .5" H
Notes
The Planisphere Watch is accurate in the northern hemisphere from 35 - 50 degrees latitude.
The majority of the continental USA runs from 30-50 degrees latitude (with the exception of the southern tips of Texas and Florida).

The bezel rotates to adjust the view for the date and time you are looking at the night sky.

      I bought this watch for my boyfriend and he loved it. Still haven't had a chance to figure out the constellation feature, but we'll get there. It comes in a nice unique box with instructions.

      My husband loves astronomy and this was the perfect gift. He especially like the softness of the rubber wristband and the overall design of the watch.
      I was pleased at how quickly the watch was shipped and that everything was packed safely for a trip from NY to HI.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Planisphere Watch:

        The watch is really beautiful. I was worried about it being a plastic band as opposed to metal or leather but it really looks great. It is a very stylish and modern looking watch, and of course the whole constellation part is just incredible and really sets it apart. It seems to be accurate, we used it at night and the constellations did seem to be where the watch showed they would be. The only problem is that it is not bright enough to see the detailing of the watch at night in the dark, and considering that's when you'll be looking at it....

        Comments about UncommonGoods Planisphere Watch:

        This is a beautiful watch, a great gift for an astronomy lover. Something to keep in mind is that is is very large - which makes sense for tracking the stars. The only con is that I wish it had come with more detailed instructions for use, instructions are basically like "use this dial to track stars!" Which is all good and well, but for the casual astronomer - how exactly?

        The product came on time and arrived in good condition.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Planisphere Watch:

        This watch is dizzy with constellation design on the watch face - so much so that it is very difficult to read the watch hands. Also the outer dial (the horizon) blocks the hands entirely at times. When I looked at purchasing this online, I read the reviews (mostly poor like this) but chose to give it a chance with my husband. I should have just passed it up. Now I am returning it.

        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 :)
