stars in the sky

This year watch designers seem to have been star-gazing. Astronomical complications were everywhere from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rendez-Vous Moon, where a moon travels through a star-studded sky, to Montblanc’s tribute to Vasco da Gama, which had the Southern Cross constellation the Portuguese explorer used to navigate his passage to India.

This isn’t surprising. Horology and astronomy have always been linked, tied up as they are in man’s history of travel and his need to mark the passing of time– a synergy that is evident in the creation of complications such as moon phases.

Celestial-inpsired watches really look their best when worn under star-studded night sky accessorised with midnight blacks, shimmering silvers and gossamer-fine materials. Sun worshippers need not apply, these are for night owls only.
