The unique location of ESO’s Paranal Observatory, in the middle of the Atacama Desert in Chile, was the venue chosen by the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen to launch a pioneering watch that combines solar time with sidereal time, together with astronomical displays such as a chart of the stars overhead for a given geographical location.
