    I about fell out of my seat when I saw it. No telling how much that costs even if it had a price tag.

    Wow, incredible. An amazing piece of engineering. Was it my mistake or isn't Earth placed as the center of the universe in the display? And wasn't it Galileo who concluded we revolved around the Sun?

    I ask because I wonder if the drawing was originally done before he concluded we revolved around the Sun or was it done after he was pressured to change his claims. :thinking:

    According to my quick research, Copernicus said the Earth revolved around the sun about 100 years before Galileo.

    Wow! I'd had thought that the earth had been revolving around the sun for much longer than just 100 years before Galileo.. :rofl: :rofl:

    That is really good.....Stunning in fact.......


    I do think that other wrist watch manufacturers have mastered a moon phase complication more successfully though. :rofl::rofl:
