We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars
The Citizen Astrodea (Astronomical Diagram from the Earth) is a star chart watch; the one shown below is the Southern Hemisphere model which displays 90.4% of the stars seen from Northern latitude of 35 degrees, and 98.6% of the sky from Southern latitude 35 degrees.
It is quartz, but for JPY47,250, it is an amazing piece of work. Each Astrodea comes with a loupe for viewing the dial, but even with the naked eye the dial detail and quality is outstanding.
Apologies for the poor photo, I took the above after putting away my DSLR
Only 300 of these are made each year, and are mostly sold in astronomy shops. Many thanks to stultus77 for helping me get this watch.
