The New YES WorldWatch V7 collection is an astronomically focused wristwatch line which combines the daily, monthly and seasonal time cycles of the Sun and the Moon.
As the YES WorldWatch notes, “At a glance the YES WorldWatch V7 give you times for sunrise, sunset, zenith, twilight and true midnight as well as moonrise, moonset, Moon phase plus time and date for the next new and full moon. The key benefit to an astronomer is you can predict the best time to view the universe. When the night will be at its darkest. On the day of posting that window falls between the end of astronomical twilight and the rising of the Moon.”
The YES WorldWatch V7 is fitted with a titanium case and is built to 10 ATM water resistance with AG sapphire crystal. The custom-made charging system and lithium-ion batteries will keep the V7 charged for up to 3 months on a full night of charging. T24 color coded tritium tubes mark the hours; one tritium tube on the arrow hand marks the time. Combined with the electro luminescent back light, it offers a crisp night time readout. The arrow hand balances perfectly on a state of the art, motor-driven, 24-hour Swiss Ronda movement.
