Bring Astronomy on your wrist

Dear readers and followers,

If you are looking for a amazing gift or simply for yourself and that you want to bring some astronomy with you Jacob & Co. proposes THE WATCH you need! The creation called Astronomia Tourbillon includes a dial for the time (that remains upright in all positions as it moves around the main dial) a rotating representation of the earth, a spinning spherical crystal (perhaps a diamond), and lastly, an impressive looking bi-axial tourbillon.

This is all based on a wonderful looking planetary gear arrangement that any engineering student (or watchmaker) would be proud to have as their term project. Enjoy this video:
