NASA’s recent ground-breaking discovery of the Trappist-1 solar system inspired us to imagine what a journey to these newly found planets might be like. The watch pays tribute to this new planetary system of seven planets resembling our own, located 12 parsecs (39 light years) away from us and orbiting a red dwarf star slightly larger than Jupiter.

Several key features of the Trappist-1 Moonphase watch set it apart from other traditional watch designs.

The large Cupola grille floating over the dial provides a window into the depths of space and time as distant planets slowly come into view amongst the star riddled void.
Two Super-LumiNova™ planets indicate hours and minutes on the dial, and the center viewing window shows the current moon phase.
The watch features a domed crystal made from Hesalite, a material that was initially developed for NASA. Hesalite is still used for watch crystals on all space missions due to its rigidity and durability even in the harshest environments of space.
The straps are made from U.S. Horween leather and the ridges are modeled after texturized space gloves.
Each colorway will be limited to 2017 pieces and each watch will be individually numbered.

Yup - despite his Flame Fusion-type shuck and jive about the "special glass" requested by NASA.

The Apollo craft used normal enough glass - in fact I'm betting some of the attached looks very familiar to you.

Why does everybody feel compelled to spin bullshit around mineral glass? I wonder if Xeric used the tempering or toughening that NASA did or does straight mineral glass count as "similar to that requested by NASA"?

My GODAM patio door has "glass similar to that used in the Apollo missions" - BFD.

I hate the way they look, and I'm so not going to read all that marketing drivel. I don't care about the crystal, the very first glance at it all has successfully managed to repel me.

It looks like it was designed by a drunk from Lisbon.*
