The cosmic connection to the commander of the USS Enterprise is obvious. A sun and moon disc, specially designed for the watch, indicates whether it’s day or night for those who lose track of time. To kick it up a notch in the space-time continuum, the disc is also covered with a sprinkling of 100 percent authentic space rock. Never mind that the asteroid dust is in microscopic smithereens and pretty much invisible, you can still boast that you’re wearing a piece of the universe on your wrist.
As old as time
Passages is purely mechanical, which means you will never have to replace batteries. Its operation is fuelled by kinetic energy from your wrist movements, a classic technique called automatic quartz that Seiko pioneered in 1986.
Decked out in high-grade stainless steel and virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal for the case, it looks like it could even survive a meteorite crash. And to give it that final star factor, William Shatner’s autograph is engraved on the back, along with a number to prove its exclusivity.
Thanks to the magic of crowdfunding, the watch won't cost as much as you'd imagine. For just US$399 (S$500), you can get a timeless piece of William Shatner. What an incredible steal.
