The Jupiter & Juno watch chronicles the love between Roman god Jupiter and his wife, Juno, the daughter of Saturn. Just like how our cosmos pays ode to their love as the large planet Jupiter does rounds of the sun, with Juno, the asteroid sitting in the belt right before it… the watch’s face contains an hour and minute planetary mnemonic (not a hand) that goes around the center of the dial. These mnemonics also have a circular trail that looks like the cosmic body’s orbit.
We love how the watch’s design has a rather well-knit mythological backstory that adds depth to the otherwise minimal watch design. It’s also pleasing to see that sometimes Jupiter and Juno are right near each other, and at other times, they’re as far away as possible. Adds a different dimension to your time-reading experience, doesn’t it?
