The Swiss watchmaker Borgeaud has surprised observers by unveiling its patented Septagraph watch. Encouraged by three millennia of Southern India astronomical observation, the marvelous novelty demonstrates a profound attachment to the century-old Swiss horological traditions.
The new Borgeaud Septagraph watch is a respectful nod to the Indian Panchang, a calendar followed by hundreds of millions all over the world. It divides the day into daytime and nighttime halves, each comprising eight phases roughly ninety minutes long.
The point is, that seven of them are good for different kinds of activities when the Moon finds itself in a position, mostly favorable for making decisions. The eighth, meanwhile, is neutral or maybe even bad.
