    Anyway, i found this site while searching for a Casio Cosmic Phase Clock and a watch posting came up. I just restored one of these watches and was looking for the clock version. I saw that some have an interest in this particular watch (mine is not for sale ;-):



    You might recognize the “Idmes Ferguson Mechanical Paradox Orrery” that a friend of mine made (Jim Donnelly).

    Well enough of an intro.
