Look closely at the texture on the exposed areas of the dial and you will see a ridge pattern. This looks attractive, but also tricks the eyes into thinking the surface is a bit more opaque than it actually is. I am actually amazed at how little space on the dial needs to be reserved for this purpose though. I don't think that the subdials share this light permeable quality. Kudos to the Citzen Eco-Drive movement for being so adaptable. Given the movement, the Citizen Campanola Eco-Drive watches feature an energy reserve so that you know when they need to be taken out of the case and worn a bit. Further complications are impressive, with a 12 hour chronograph, peripheral date indicator, and smiling moonphase indicator.
The watch itself came in two versions. Each with yellow gold cases, but one with actual meteorite used for the dial of the watch. A good taste of the celestial for such a themed watch. The design is fitting for placement in a marble appointed museum, or alike, but the features make for comfortable daily wear. Size of the watch is 40mm. The watch is powered by an automatic in-house Ulysse Nardin movement, and is admirably legible given the amount of features that it has. I'd hate to see this watch run out of power, and the user spend hours trying to reset all the features. More likely, you'd have to send it back to Ulysse Nardin for such labor. There are several other similar watches in the aforementioned celestial themed series of watches made by master watch maker Ulysse Nardin, stay turned for more of them.
