This Watch Shows The Real-Time Motion Of Planets Right On Its Face
The stars have aligned to bring you a very cool accessory.
Remember the cat in “Men In Black” who held the entire universe in a little orb on his collar? Well, science hasn’t totally cracked that magical code yet, but the geniuses over at Van Cleef & Arpels have come pretty close with their Midnight Planétarium Watch.
This stellar timepiece not only displays the hours of the day, but also the real-time movement of all the planets in our solar system, each with its own corresponding gemstone—Mars is red jasper, Venus is chloromelanite, Earth is turquoise, and so on. Other celestial bodies include a pink gold shooting star, which makes a full rotation around the watch every 24 hours.
You can even program a “lucky day” in which the Earth stone will rotate under the engraved star, symbolizing good fortune. Your luck can’t be too bad though if you’re splurging for a timepiece with a price tag of $225,000. For the rest of us, let’s just take a moment to marvel at beauty of stargazing on your own wrist.
