Northern Lights

This exotic timepiece is created using the rim of the Awabi abalone in Japan. Although the shell is tinted purple and turquoise, the fantastic display of color is an inherent characteristic of the shell and the tinting serves to bring out the natural vibrancy of the colors. A clear 2mm stone serves as a time marker at the 12.

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Auroral displays appear in many colors although pale green and pink are the most common. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky. Researchers have discovered that auroral activity is cyclic, peaking roughly every 11 years. The next peak period is 2024.

* Awabi abalone or sea snails are considered to be endangered and so only the waste shell is used in any Celeste Watch. The shades, patterns, and color variations are inherent natural characteristics.
