Design: Alessio Romano (2015)
ORA MAJOR by Alessio Romano provides a modern interpretation of the world’s original timepiece åÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ__Ì_Ì± the Constellations.
Romano was inspired by the notion that other planets in the galaxy might be sharing the same universal timepiece. The red hour and white minute hands align like stars across a dial as dark as the night sky. The orientation of Ora Major’s Constellation shifts with the passing of time.
Ora Major is made of black IPB stainless steel with a black silicone band, and utilizes a high quality Japanese movement. It is considered the perfect unisex-size case measuring 37mm (1.45 in).

Watch has gotten many compliments and is interesting to look at. However, I'd have preferred an automatic movement with a sweeping second hand. That being said, I like this watch and appreciate the imagination that went into creating it.
Let me know when it becomes available with an automatic movement and sweeping second hand. I would buy it in a "second" (yes...pun intended)!!

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.
Great quailty and excellent price

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
