Geocentric Orrery Sundial Watch

  [vote for,

The face of this watch is a sundial, with the gnomon being a miniature planet earth. A lightbulb, representing the sun, skirts the circumference so that the projected shadow of the earth illustrates the time.

       Creative. Artsy. Would be appealing to science toy stores or science museum gift shop type customers (+)   

       I recall the childhood excitement of receiving a fresh Edmund Scientific catalog in the mail. This watch would have caught my eye.

       Gnomon. Orrery. Earth. All new words to me. Cool idea! [+]

       [+] The illustration really brings it together.

       Maybe there could be a variant for politicians and celebrities where the gnomon is a tiny statue of themselves and the universe revolves around them.   

       For the especially arrogant, egotistical and self-obsessed, illumination of the dial at night could be provided by sunlight shining from the backside of the statue.
