Cambridge, MA, May 25, 2016 — Finally, the answer to the Smart Watch: The Stonehenge Pocket Watch™! A must have for you or your sophisticated Druid neighbor. Tired of annoying strangers strutting the latest in wearable technology? Well, buck the trend and go back in time 5,000 years to the most organic method of time telling, a wearable sundial. No GMO’s here! And while some smart watches are solar powered, The Stonehenge Watch™ is both solar and lunar powered (a proprietary secret). This eco-friendly watch is not only perfect for the Millennials, but for the Fifth Millennial cro-magnums and Neanderthals alike. Can the owner of a smart watch compute an eclipse? Well, probably, but not in the way of our esteemed ancestors, by actually looking at the moon in the sky, aligning your watch, and then howling like a banshee! After selling out the inaugural run of the forward & backward compatible Stonehenge Watch™ — “A great leap backward in time!”—is back in the civilized (however remotely) world. 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. And to top it off, it is certified to return fewer then one error every 10,000 years or more.
Great Leap Backward in Time
The Stonehenge Watch™ has garnered much international attention and has been featured in Astronomy, at The International Sky Art Conference at MIT, on BBC-TV, 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 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. A perfect answer to the Smart 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!
A stonehenge watch: Probably the coolest watch I’ve seen in my entire life.

You can now harness the power of the sun and the stones by using the Stonehenge Watch.
