The Stonehenge Watch Website
The Stonehenge 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 years. The Stonehenge Watch™ is modeled after an old-fashioned railroad pocket
watch and has been handsomely constructed to also include an analog quartz watch on one side (for those who insist on modern
methods of time-telling) and a relief of Stonehenge on the other.
Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) November 15, 2006
-- After selling out the inaugural run of the 5th Millennial Edition of the Stonehenge Watch™ -- "A great leap
backward in time telling!" The makers of The Stonehenge Watch™ are pleased to announce that it is back in stock
and ready to ship. This edition commemorates the 5th Millennia of the construction of Stonehenge.
Great Leap Backward in Time
The Stonehenge Watch™ has garnered much international attention
and has been featured in Playboy Magazine, at The International Sky Art Conference at MIT, on BBC-TV, in Astronomy Magazine,
in Stuff/UK's 100 Best Gadgets of All-Time issue; featured in Inc. Magazine, is represented in the classic college textbook,
Astronomy: From Earth to the Universe (Saunders), and has even 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.
By owning The Stonehenge Watch™, users will quickly
learn that Stonehenge is, at once, the oldest and newest way to tell time. Begin a "Great Leap Backward in Time"
by pressing the watch stem button atop the rugged alloy watchcase and witness the mystery of Stonehenge revealed. Inside,
see the exact scale replica of the major components of the 5,000 year-old megalithic monument known 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
archeology, has called The Stonehenge Watch™ a "Handsome and ingenious time-piece." Catherine Salmons, in
The Boston Phoenix has said, "I'm amazed by the cleverness of The Stonehenge Watch, the outrageousness of its humor;
it's a three-dimensional Zen conundrum, the ultimate neo-dada gadget." Ivan Peterson, of Science News Online wrote,
somewhat tongue-in-cheek, when comparing The Stonehenge Watch™ to a modern day super accurate atomic clock, "The
Stonehenge Watch™ tackles the passage of time in a considerably more contemplative manner." Also available with
The 5th Millennial edition of The Stonehenge Watch™ is a limited edition signed copy of the outrageously funny, Stonehenge
Unraveled, by Peter Payack (Inventor of the watch) which again, R.J.C Atkinson called "a satisfying and scholarly guide
to the unique time-piece."

ENGADGET.COM: "Apparently the conveniences of modern technology have made
us all very lazy. It's just too easy to tell time these days, which is why Sharpe Products is going super-old-school and
selling the Stonehenge Watch… this pocketwatch manages the perfect blend of style and street cred for the Druid-on-the-go.
It's a throwback to the days before atomic clocks and internet time servers, when estimating the time to within an hour
was considered deadly accurate."

Yes, impress all your friends (in your druid club) by confidently
predicting the spring and vernal equinox. Never again be caught out as summer turns to autumn (surely a must for fashion conscious
season watchers). Remarkably, the pocketable monument does actually work. Line it up with the compass and you can tell the
time just as our ancestors did all those millennia ago. And if you can't be bothered with all that, flip it over and you'll
find a proper analogue watch with 'mystical' hour and minute hands. Hey, that's cheating!

classic timekeeping gadget: Stonehenge is certainly surrounded by mystery concerning why it was built and by whom. Druids,
