From 1993 to 2008 Accurist enjoyed a unique association with the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, starting with the provision of an atomic clock that recorded the time for the world. In 1997, Accurist supplied the official Millennium Countdown clock
. The limited edition Celestial timepiece has been inspired by more than 300 years of astronomical heritage at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.
The Accurist Celestial watches are a part of our Precision
family. These timepieces are precisely designed analogue quartz watches that display the correct positions of constellations as they move across the sky. It is beautifully constructed out of stainless steel, with a scratch resistant sapphire glass and elegant butterfly clasp, on a genuine calf leather strap, and has all the high quality hallmarks that you would expect from Accurist.
Each watch comes in a beautiful wooden presentation box together with a magnifying glass so that you can read the incredible information contained on the watch face. In perfect detail, the dial shows the positions of 1056 fixed stars with a brightness of at least 4.8th magnitude, 169 major nebulae, galaxies and star clusters, constellation boundaries and the ecliptic and the celestial equator. In addition to displaying the time, date and month, the Celestial watch shows the (azimuth) bearing and altitude of the major fixed stars, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters, and displays local sidereal (star) time and stellar spectral type. It also assists in the calculation of the position of the sun, the time of sunrise and sunset, and thus the hours of darkness when astronomical observations may be made.
This extraordinary timepiece comes individually numbered with a certificate of authenticity. The Accurist range is available from an affordable £275
