The Gates of the Arctic watch displays daytime from 6 am to 6 pm with a north star pointing to the hours and a moon for the hours between 6 pm and 6 am representing the limited amounts of daylight during winter in Alaska. Each hour is denoted by a white star/dot in the night sky. The minutes are shown inside the mountain peak. And when the lights go out, the luminescent northern lights begin to glow.

Pretty but useless

The design is great! I really love the look and the basic idea. Unfortunately, as a watch, it's pretty much useless. The tiny minute numbers are all but invisible; partly because of the week contrast to the background and partly because of the reflection of the glass. The hours also need quite a lot of practice to read. Where is that star/moon and what hour is that?
I guess a major part of the problem are the multiple layers of glass and clear plastic.
