Planisphere Watch

A beautiful and functional timepiece, this watch makes star gazing an exercise in style, not astrophysics.

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.

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.

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.

      This was a gift from my boyfriend who is really into astronomy. He loved the look of the watch however he's going to return it because it's not practical for everyday use to tell time.

        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.

          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....

          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?

          Service and delivery comments:

          The product came on time and arrived in good condition.
