The Stonehenge Watch™
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.

"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."
