(English) Design submitted by Delphine from France.
Delphine says: I was looking at a rotating sky map and I thought it would be great to have one small everywhere I go. Date and time are already on it so why not a watch? And this is how Constellation was born.
The first model (round) is an analog one. On the top there’s a small fixed disc with the 24 hours on it. Below there’s a larger disc with the sky map and the date, which turns anti-clockwise.
The second model (square) is based on the same principle but all on a screen.
For both, the hour indicated by the date is the Sun’s. The current time (Sun time +1 or 2) can be highlightened. The minutes are displayed on a screen in the middle. It’s maybe possible to combine both models.
There’s also a red backlight to read the map at night.
The watch is available in two options : North hemisphere or South hemisphere.
It’s not a very precise map or movement, which, I think, would be too expensive.
This watch is made for every people who are interested in astronomy or just curious to know what’s upon their head or have head in the stars Plus it can look smart and classy.
I never saw a watch like this one, where it works exactly like a rotating sky map, without hands like classic analog watches.
UPDATE: Modified case & map design.
