This Enchanting Astronomical Watch Depicts the Real-Time Orbits of Planets

179

Entitled The Midnight Planetarium Timepiece, this amazing watch provides a miniature representation of the movement of six planets around the sun and their exact position at any given time.  Planets are set in in motion thanks to a highly complicated, self-winding mechanism, containing 396 separate parts, which allow the movement of each planet to be true to it’s length of orbit. This means that Earth will spend 365 days to circle the quadrant, while Saturn will spend 29 years.

The planets in this luxurious watch, designed by French designers of Van Cleef & Arpels, are made of precious stones, chloromelanite, jasper, agate or sugilite, and a shooting star in pink gold is there to indicate the hour.

The watch will cost you around $225,000 — a small price to pay for having the entire solar system on your arm, right?
