It's important to use a watch for all its common utilities: helping you stay on track and be on time. But that doesn't mean that your timepiece can't pull from some dreamy, interstellar inspiration — and this Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase Watch does just that.

Produced by one of Kickstarter's most successful watch brands ever, this handsome watch draws its design inspiration from NASA's groundbreaking discovery of the Trappist-1 seven-planet solar system — "just" 39 light years away from our own.

Even if you're a layman just admiring the watch's gorgeous features, you'll still appreciate the domed crystal face made from Hesalite, a material initially developed for NASA, and the two Super-LumiNova planets indicating hours and minutes on the dial. There's even a window depicting the current moon phase and magnified Stardate window at 6 o'clock.

Bring all your childhood dreams of being an astronaut and exploring space to life with this watch: usually, the Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase Watch is $350, but you can get it now for $244.99.
