Four hundred years ago, astronomy was a wild mix of magic, mathematics and madmen. Its boldest thinkers were treated like rock stars, worshipped by royalty and celebrated by international intellectuals. These were men, after all, who were answering the biggest questions in the universe. And when it came to decoding the mechanics of the heavens, nobody had it figured out better than Johannes Kepler. His epiphany came in 1595, once he realized that planetary orbits around the Sun weren’t circular, they were elliptical. In that moment, he invented astrophysics and changed the way mankind thinks about, well... everything.
His theories revealed that the apparent chaos of the universe was actually an intricate machine in which everything ran like clockwork with every planet moving in harmony. If you figure out something that important, the least we can do is name a watch after you.
The Kepler Timepiece is our humble tribute to one brilliant man who changed history. Its look was inspired by the 17th-century tools of stargazers and scientists. Behind the striking midnight-blue face, you’ll find a tiny, self-contained mechanical universe. Like the cosmos, every piece has its purpose.
Our watch recalls the classic designs of early horological machines, but has been fine-tuned using modern technology to deliver unprecedented accuracy to within a fraction of a second per day. Revolutionize your wrist, just as Kepler revolutionized the way we see the night sky, by embracing the forces of harmonic movement within the Stauer Kepler Timepiece.
