Themed watches are a trend that never seems to die. From diving to aeronautical watches, these are the type of watches that will always have a place in a collector’s heart. These watches have a long-standing history with specific themes, much like the IWC for being a pilot’s watch and Omega being made for diving. Then, there’s the collection of astronomical watches.
These are the type of watches that aren’t themed towards a specific occupation or hobby. It is however, made to bring the stars closer to your collection. Astronomical watches have been around for some time now, giving your run-of-the-mill luxury watches a brand new look and feel.

Astronomical watches also only appeal to a niche group of collectors and enthusiasts; not everyone would be interested in it much like the more popular pieces.
What’s great about astronomical watches is that it not only gives you a glimpse into the inner workings of a luxury timepiece, it also allows you to look beyond just the skies and into the galaxy.
