Constellations are part of the results that human ingenuity has given in order to organize extraterrestrial reality.

Since ancient times, the observation of space and human curiosity and imagination were decisive in establishing the knowledge that we have of the cosmos until now. In this aspect, constellations provide one of the best examples, since they are the result of the need to organize and reference that which is beyond the terrestrial limits. Its definition has even been used for other non-scientific disciplines, such as astrology.

The Constellations pocket watch is presented in a beautiful wooden case, very suitable for making a perfect gift and is accompanied by a small brochure in which a historical overview of the mechanical watch is given.

According to the Britannica encyclopedia, the oldest Greek work, which already treated the constellations as such, is the Phainomena by the astronomer Eudoxus of Cnidus (c. 395-337 BC).
