Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 31, 2004
To commemorate the 5th Millennial of the construction of Stonehenge on June 21, 2007, the makers of the world-renowned Stonehenge WatchÂ are proud to present a special 5th Millennial Edition of the Stonehenge WatchÂ - ÂA great leap backward in time telling!Â
The Stonehenge WatchÂ has garnered much international attention and has been featured at The International Sky Art Conference at MIT, on BBC-TV and in The Boston Globe; featured in Inc. Magazine, is represented at the Salisbury Museum in England, and has been for sale at the Stonehenge site itself.
This 5th millennial edition of the watch is specially crafted to keep the integrity of the original construction of Stonehenge, and thus, when opening the watchcase, can use the built to scale model of Stonehenge as a shadow clock to tell time, mark the four seasons and note the passage of the years. Every astronomical function that was intended by the original builders of Stonehenge can be accomplished with the watch.
The Stonehenge WatchÂ is modeled after an old-fashioned railroad pocket watch and has been handsomely constructed to also include a handsome analogue quartz watch on one side (for those who insist on modern methods of time-telling) and a relief of Stonehenge on the other side.
By owning The Stonehenge WatchÂ, you will quickly learn that Stonehenge is, at once, the oldest and newest way to tell time.
So take "A Great Leap Backward in Time" with The Stonehenge WatchÂ !
Begin your "Great Leap Backward in Time" by pressing the watch stem button atop the rugged alloy watchcase and witness the mystery of Stonehenge revealed. Inside you will see the exact scale replica of the major components of the 5,000 year-old megalithic monument we know as Stonehenge. Orient yourself with the watch's accompanying high viscosity compass to tell local apparent time just as the builders of Stonehenge did thousands of years ago!
The late esteemed astronomer, R.J.C Atkinson, former Chairman of the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales, renowned as The Authority on Stonehenge archaeology, has called The Stonehenge WatchÂ a ÂHandsome and ingenious time-piece.Â Catherine Salmons, in The Boston Phoenix has said, ÂIÂm amazed by the cleverness of The Stonehenge Watch, the outrageousness of its humor; itÂs a three-dimensional Zen conundrum, the ultimate neo-dada gadget.Â Ivan Peterson, of Science News Online wrote, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, when comparing The Stonehenge WatchÂ to a modern day super accurate atomic clock, ÂThe Stonehenge WatchÂ tackles the passage of time in a considerably more contemplative manner.Â And Robert Beard, Chief Linguistic Officer of yourDictionary.com, said, ÂWhen the computer is a distant memory people will be using the Stonehenge WatchÂ. Poetry-schmoetry, DNA-SchmeeNA. But The Stonehenge WatchÂ. Wow!Â
The 5th Millennial edition of The Stonehenge WatchÂ comes with a limited edition signed copy of the outrageously funny, Stonehenge Unraveled, by Peter Payack. Which again, R.J.C Atkinson called Âa satisfying and scholarly guide to the unique time-piece.Â
