Without a doubt, the perfect watch for a day like today as we are just a few hours away from the beginning of the total solar eclipse 2017 is the Jaquet Droz Éclipse Onyx. Fitted with a 43mm stainless steel case and an onyx dial that includes a complete calendar with a moon and eight stars on relief, this watch features a retrograde moon that is eclipsed with an independent rotating cover as the phases advance and a serpentine hand marks the date around the circumference of the dial.
Now, if we pretend that the moon on the dial was actually the sun and the cover the moon itself, then in theory we would somewhat of a total solar eclipse on the dial of this watch.
To all of you chasing the total solar eclipse today, please don't forget to wear special eclipse glasses during the partial eclipse as it is not safe to look at the sun without eye protection at any time before the totality takes place. The only moment when it is safe to look at the sun without eye protection is when the total solar eclipse comes to the point of totality and the sun is completely blocked by the moon.
If you are looking for one of the most unique complete calendars with moon phase in the market and the perfect watch for a day like today when we get to see see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights —a total solar eclipse—, then look no further.
