    Astronomy-related design elements

    Ok time to let out your inner dork. I like watches and I also like astronomy. Hoping to start a list of watches with any type of Astronomy-related design features, no matter how prominent or inconspicuous.

    So for example most Zenith or Enicar watches count because of the star and Saturn logo respectively. Omega Constellation of course. Anything with a moon phase qualifies. Day/night indicators with sun/moon design elements count too.

    So do these:

    A planetarium in a watch?

    What are some Affordable Astronomy/Planetary Related-Type watches.

    Thanks for playing!

    I liked the way that the moon was complimented by the dial color and stars.

    There are other moon phase watches I like and have owned a few but this one with its tritium glow is all about the moon and the glow.

    It's currently showing full but just a sliver of darkness will begin by this evening. It's my moon watch; I'm shopping for a good telescope for out at the cabin also..............

    A Moonphase is as astro as I get. I can’t show you my first recruit because it’s still in Germany.

    Citizen Astrodea watches appeal to the backyard astronomer in me. Star map on a watch...

    That’s a beautiful watch. I understand the lume on Ball watches is supposed to be great as well.

    OT but on telescopes my grail would be a Televue TV-85. I really like my image-stabilizing binoculars too though!

    Here’s another one I came across, that I now want ...

    And since we’re including astronomy-related names now the Omega Seamaster Cosmic would also count

    And for perhaps the ultimate in horological astronomy-related geekology here’s another one that claims to include actual asteroid dust and was produced in collaboration with Captain Kirk:

    Re: Astronomy-related design elements

    For telescopes I'm attempting to stay under 700 USD for one. I've been reading a bit on them and talking with those who own different models and brands. From our remote cabin there are views of the moon and sky that are incredible to see. The air is so clear that the moon looks closer than other viewing venues.

    I love the Ball tritium! I have only 2 of their watches and they are the stuff for long dark winters here.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned already, but this Epos always comes to mind....
