Antikythera Mechanism Watch!

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I am fascinated by the Antikythera Mechanism, a 2,000-year-old device found off the coast of an island in the Mediterranean that was used by the ancient Greeks to calculate the future dates of eclipses (among other functions). I recently learned that a watchmaker had created a small version of the Mechanism that could be worn on the wrist. Sign me up!

[Watch the video to learn about the watch.]
