Geek Fashion: Ptolemaic Watch

Just because a theory has been disproven doesn’t mean we can’t cling to it with both hands. On the Ptolameic Watch, the sun is on the minute hand and the moon is on the hour hand and we are the center of the solar system once again. (Shhhhhhhh. Let us not speak of Copernicus.)

Show your irrational love for the great Egyptian astrologer’s beautiful dream of heavenly mechanics with UPG’s beautiful watch depicting all of the planets and the sun orbiting the Earth.

Although Ptolemy lived many years before the metric system, we made the watch face 30mm in diameter. The watch is water resistant, not waterproof, and comes with a one-year warranty. That’s a mere 20 minutes less than an entire solar year!
