Pluto was shamed a few years ago and declared a dwarf planet whilst others were given the more coveted position of being a full-fledged planet. However, planet Eris has gained fame as being the largest of the dwarf planets. Eris is so popular that it has even inspired time.
The Pierre Junod Eris watch, named after the dwarf planet, is much smaller in comparison but will definitely garner as much attention. It’s unique spherical design make it an instant hit and set it apart from others. It may not be the best thing for your wrist but the watch, available with a natural rubber strap, can be worn around the neck or used as a pocket watch. The Eris watch has an anthracite anodised aluminium case, laser engraved figures, mineral glass, and Swiss quartz movement.
The Pierre Junod Eris watch was designed by students from l’Ecole d’Arts Appliqués Genèva. Time is shown from the white and orange pointers that appear to float at the equator of the micro planet. The $450 watch will be available from the end of this month.
