Architect Sanjay B. Mahashabde designed a unique watch and clock, and
he’s named his invention “Auspi Watch”. The extraordinary
feature of this watch is that it displays the almanac or the planetary
mapping depending on the position of the sun and the moon. Mr. Mahashabde
states, “The watches and the clocks we use, do not show us the
quality of time.”
The name Auspi Watch is a combination of two words “auspicious”
and “time”. He added that the Hindu community believes in
the positioning of the sun. He explains, “They undertake any work
depending on the position of the sun while the Muslim communities go
by the positioning of the moon.”
He said that his watches will help people know how good or bad their
Explaining how user-friendly the watch is, he said, “The user
need not go into the technicality of how the watch is prepared. This
is not just a watch. It has a map which shows the movement of the planet
for 24 hours. This will give the user vital information on the various
astrological aspects of that particular day and of every hour.”
The watch also displays the direction that one should not travel in
on that particular day. The Auspi Watch also displays the colour code
for the user for that particular day. For instance, it displays the
colour code of white and sky blue for Mondays.
The white and yellow colour on the top of the Auspi Watch dial shows
the satvik and rajsik nature of the ruling planet which indicates what
work can be undertaken at what time.
“The planets and their significant positions play a pivotal role
in human life and this has been proven by the science of astrology and
the muhurta shastra,” he said.
According to Mr. Mahashabde in the ancient time, people had the knowledge
of the same, but at present, due to the hectic schedule and also due
to non-availability of the teachings, it is not possible to refer to
the best or auspicious time (muhurta) for a particular nature of work
to be undertaken.
The product, he says, has been designed for the masses and it indicates
the three important yogs described in the Panchang which tell the positive
and negative aspects regarding the combination of the nakshatra, tithi
and the var (day).
“The product will also display the shatru-bhav of the planets
for 24 hours. After carrying out intense research, I was able to design
a watch that gives a full-fledged Panchang along with the timepiece
to make our lives easier and harmonious,” said Mr. Mahashabde.
