Lately I’ve been reading about luxury timepieces, and every so often, I come across a really cool sky-themed watch, or one with an interesting moon-phase indicator. While these are beyond the monetary realm of most space nerds, myself included, they’re still pretty to look at! I’m not kidding, by the by: let’s see, buy a watch or buy a car, buy a watch or buy a house… or multiple houses. Who buys these things? NO IDEA. Elon Musk?
Without further ado…
The top image is a detail of the amazing-looking moon globe indicator on the Cyrus Klepcys watch, shown below. (The link contains a cool action video of the watch, including the moon phase indicator.)
Next, an intriguing double-sided watch, the Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon. I think it’s safe to say, if I were wearing this, you’d only ever see the blue/night side. TOO PRETTY.
This next watch has a lovely realistic moon phase dial, and multiple diamond-set constellations: Geo.Graham The Moon, by Graham. There’s simply nothing to dislike about this watch (except maybe that there isn’t a ladies version.)
Last but not least, a watch with a textured moon sphere, revealed on both front and back, and a weathered, steampunk-ish exterior. It reminds me of Iron Man (the Mach 1.) Bonus points: it’s called the Lunokhod, by Konstantin Chaykin.
I do wish more awesome moon/sky watches came in a ladies size — but I suppose there’s no rule against wearing a large watch!
