Accurist Celestial Greenwich Commemorative Watch
As an unrepentant geek I have been looking for a Citizen Astrodea planisphere watch since the first time I laid eyes on one. They were already out of production at the time and used ones, when you can find one, are quite pricey. I didn't know about the Accurist watch until very recently. It is sold in England, is licensed and made by Citizen in Japan and is the same movement and dial as the Astrodea. Only difference is the case, which is claimed to actually be better quality than the original Astrodea. There are a couple of models; one for the USA with a planisphere for 35 degrees North, and a UK model for 50 degress North. The celestial watch is no longer advertised on the Accurist website and is apparently now out of production, but they were still available online from eBay and Gold Bar Jewelers in Glasgow when I bought mine. Glad I got one before they're all gone - again.
