This watch face isn’t for everyone, but if you are a bit of a geek, you might enjoy it a tiny bit. It is a very accurate true model of our earth / moon system complete with tidal force .
There is allot going on with this watch face:
1: The top down view of the Earth’s Northern Hemisphere is in the middle. This view shows the light and dark side of the earth in relation to your coordinate location on it. Your longitudinal location is highlighted with the red bar. Your latitudinal location is highlighted with the red circle. Your coordinates are the intersection of the two (+/- 500km). The earth spins slowly throughout the day as your location transitions from the light to the dark side of the earth. The sunrise time is indicated on the right in yellow, adjacent to the shadow edge. The sunset time is indicated on the left in grey, adjacent to the shadow. The Earth’s shadow area expands in the winter for the shorter days, and contracts in the summer for the longer days, due to the Earth’s 23.5 degree tilt to the solar plane as it orbits the sun. With the Earth shadow feature, there is no need to have an AM/PM indicator, but it is still there if you use 12 hour mode. There is a little sun at the top of the screen if you wish to imagine it casting the shadow.
2: The moon orbits the earth exactly as it does in the real world, This is a true real time moon orbital model, callibrated fairly well until mid 2025. The moons shadow is accurate to the little sun as well. Fun feature - imagine you are standing at the tip of the red line on the earth looking at the moon (when it is in view only), you will see the moon phase exactly as you do on the moon phase icon. The moon phase icon is on either the lower left or right side depending on where the real moon location is. (moon size is accurately reflected, but distance is not, the watch face is only so big.)
3: TIDAL FORCES are the real influence behind creating this watch face. The smaller (47%) Sol tidal influence force is shown around the earth in YELLOW. The larger Luna (56%) tidal influence force is shown around the earth in GREY. The Cummulative tidal force is shown around the earth in a LIGHT BLUE. If you exlcude land and coastal influences, the tide at the equator will be reflected as high/low tide by these tidal influence forces as the water is squished about. (Force representations are not 100% accurate, and some liberty has been made to make them visually striking)
4: Also shown is the current weather condition icon, appropriately reflecting day/night for a moon or sun condition icon is displayed top, along with your location name. Steps are on the side. Weather and steps switch sides depending upon the real moon location.
Imperial/Metric, Mi/km, 12/24 hour mode compatible.
