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
Ingredients
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.

I bought this for my husband. He loves unique watched, and he is a science-oriented person. This was perfect for him. It's a bit complicated to read at first, but you can adjust to it.

              The watch is awesome, perfectly good watch but with the added curiousity of seeing the stars and constilations how they were meant to be seen.

              Service and delivery comments:

              When I purchased this item the website said only 2 in stock. A second later the website said 1 in stock. I'm glad to know the website was update and did not garuntee me a watch that wasn't there. The delivery was prompt and in perfect condition.

              This watch looks great. Very stylish and my husband has gotten lots of compliments on it. The problem is, the band is rubber and both bands which secure the strap have broken off. We've gone through two watches now. So maybe it's not good for an everyday watch.
