Pynchon Watches is proud to introduce Gloas and Cruinlagh collection!

Cruinlagh is the UK’s designated exoplanet originally named WASP-13b. It is a large, gaseous planet, found in the Lynx constellation. It is about a third of the mass of Jupiter and takes just 4 days to orbit its host star, known as Gloas originally named WASP-13. This star (Gloas) is over 740 light years from Earth and is similar to the Sun, although it is likely to be larger, hotter and older.

Automatic Watch: Cruinlagh (which means 'to orbit')

Quartz Watch: Gloas (which means 'to shine')

Powered by automatic and quartz movements, with two different Manx Gaelic collection names. These names are selected as a tribute to Pupils at Cronk y Berry Primary School in Douglas who submitted suggestions in Manx Gaelic in The UK Exoplanet Naming competition.

A class of Manx eight and nine-year-old came up with the names for a competition run by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), whom they had made their "mark on the universe".

Names were chosen due to their "sense of mystery" after taking 20% of 15,000 votes cast by members of the public of UK.
