Wear the Starry Sky on Your Wrist: Sandstone is a Great Choice

[Watch Appreciation] Many watch brands are fond of creating astronomical functions, after all, astronomical phenomena were once one of the ways people measured time. However, the presentation of astronomical phenomena on watches does not only have to be complex. Those functions that are no less than the three complex questions, tourbillon, and perpetual calendar can also be interpreted. For example, designing the special dial using sandstone as the starry sky is also a good choice. Today, I will select three sandstone starry sky themed dial watches for everyone and give a brief introduction.

Watch Review: The connection between Ulysse Nardin and astronomical functions is well known to many watch enthusiasts. Ulysse Nardin also likes to use sandstone material to create a starry sky dial. Last year’s new products – Freak S, Freak X, and the new generation Blast Moon Fantasy – all have sandstone starry sky dials. Recently, the brand launched this Marine Collection Navigator sandstone moon phase watch. The stainless steel case has a size of 42 mm. Although it is a formal watch, the watch layout is derived from the brand’s origin, the marine astronomical clock. On the sandstone starry sky dial, the 12 o’clock position is the power reserve display, and the 6 o’clock position is the small seconds dial. The pear-shaped hands and Roman numerals give the watch a special elegant temperament. In particular, the combination of the moon phase and the starry sky dial enhances the sensory experience. The watch is equipped with the UN-119 automatic movement, which features an anchor-shaped carved tourbillon, a circular Geneva wave pattern, and a fish scale texture on the lower layer. In terms of performance configuration, it also uses a silicon balance spring and silicon escapement system. It is equipped with diamond silicon crystal technology and can provide a power reserve of 60 hours when fully wound. The watch comes with a deep blue leather strap.

Watch Review: This A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia watch is undoubtedly loved by many watch enthusiasts. Previously, in an interview with hodinkee, Jean Arnault, Louis Vuitton’s Director of Watch Marketing and Product Development, showed his personal watch collection, which included this starry sky Saxonia watch. The watch has a diameter of 39 mm and an 18k white gold case. The case thickness is well controlled at only 6.2 mm. The solid silver dial with starry sky pattern is overlaid with a layer of thin sandstone glass, which shines brilliantly. Countless metal fragments change with the light, showing the sandstone effect. Under the blue sky, countless stars are reflected, giving the wearer a feeling of being in a Saxonia night. The exquisite size and outstanding appearance of this Saxonia watch also make Jean Arnault believe that it is a truly suitable dress watch for daily wear. The watch has a transparent case back, allowing watch enthusiasts to fully appreciate the classic finishing of Lange. The L093.1 manual-winding movement, as Lange’s main ultra-thin movement, has a thickness of only 2.9 mm and can provide a power reserve of up to 72 hours when fully wound. The watch is also equipped with a leather strap that matches the deep blue color of the starry sky dial.

Watch Review: Finally, let’s end with a ladies’ watch featuring a starry sky dial. I have always liked the starry sky dial of the Omega Constellation series. I have previously recommended a 25 mm quartz ladies’ watch. Today, let’s take a look at this 29 mm mechanical movement watch. The case adopts a two-tone design, half gold and half steel, which is more expressive and enhances the overall luxury sensation of the watch. 29 mm is a delicate and compact watch size for most women. The classic crescent-shaped facets on the case, together with the claws, showcase the timeless design of the series. The highlight of this watch is its dial. Omega uses sandstone to create the starry sky dial, and the diamond bezel and diamond hour markers bring dazzling brilliance, truly living up to its name of “Constellation.” It can also bring a brilliant starry sky-like visual effect to the wearer. In terms of actual effect, I think it has a more clever expression on a lady’s wrist than traditional jewelry. The watch is equipped with the Omega 8700 coaxial to the observatory movement, which offers excellent performance and durability for women.

Summary: I have introduced the three starry sky dial watches to watch enthusiasts. They all ingeniously use sandstone as a special dial design, presenting a poetic and artistic starry sky theme. In terms of price, all three watches are in the range of 100,000 to 200,000 RMB, making them advanced choices. If you like them, you may want to pay more attention to them.
