Combine your loves of telling time and star-gazing with this Planisphere watch. Once configured, it will map out some of the more well-known constellations that should be visible from where you’re standing. Grab your telescope and head outside already!

The watch displays the constellations visible in the northern hemisphere. Just align the date and time and you can view the major constellations visible that evening. The watch features a durable brass case, scratch resistant crystal dome lens, Japanese quartz movement and a “Super Luminescent” dial that glows for 2 to 3 hours to enable you to view in dark.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I’ve wanted a similar watch for some time, but one closer to the Prague Astrolabe, especially in appearance. I also have many fears about putting a $50 watch on my wrist that isn’t digital and made for luging or cart racing.

  2. This is actually a pretty good idea. Maybe not a $50 good deal, but having a self-lit, shrunken down version of a cardboard starchart is rather convenient. That is, if one can actually read something that tiny – in the dark – on one’s wrist.
