The Stellar, deep blue and flashed with orange accents, is inspired by the post Apollo space endeavour to create a joint orbiting scientific project, the International Space Station, between multiple nations. Facilitating advancements in our understanding of how the world works, science, engineering and even sociology. The honeycomb textured upper dial is also a subtle reference to the pentagonal tunnel down which Dr. David Bowman walks down in Stanley Kubrick's inimitable film “2001: A Space Odyssey”.

The Devil's In The Detail

The new age of space travel, with the STS Space Shuttle program and Soyuz rockets, is captured here in deep blue.

A honeycomb textured upper dial meets a polished steel ring, leading down over the blue chamfer featuring Roman numerals printed in white, with one highlighted XI numeral in orange. The minute track chapter ring is presented in contrasting white with blue printing, and the multi-angled dial features applied steel batons, matching skeleton hands and vivid orange running hand with white tip and orbital counterweight. Each hand is filled with a luminous compound to match the double-dot reference point at 12 o’clock.

SPACE ODYSSEY

In Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the lead protagonist Dr. David Bowman walks down an octagonal tunnel - white, brightly lit; cutting edge set design for its era. We took this as inspiration for the hexagonal pattern for the top surface.

Dial Details

The honeycomb textured upper dial meets a polished steel ring, leading down over the blue chamfer featuring Roman numerals printed in white, with one highlighted XI numeral in orange.

Case

The Astro is presented in a stainless steel case that is neither a square nor circle, but a squircle. Featuring a subtle curved quirk in every side of the Astro’s “squared” face - truly unique.

BEATING HEART

Behind the exhibition caseback lies the spectacular engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. This automatic calibre beats at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of 40+ hours.

Lume

The Astro features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.

Small Batch

Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.

Unboxing was a wow. Awesome presentation, product, design, quality and price.

THE SPACE RACE

The Astro series is inspired by the race to space, starting with the catalyst for the race, the cold war, and ending in the present. Each model represents an important phase, not just in the technological advancement and achievement of putting humans into orbit, but also human advancement, in our attitudes and outlooks.

LUGLESS DESIGN

The case of the Astro features a lugless design, measuring 38x38mm with recessed strap mounts hidden within the case. Keeping things surprisingly thin, the case features a tri-texture finish and a modest 10.65mm thickness.
