Have you ever wanted to look at your wrist and know where Mars is right now? Well, the Midnight Planetarium Watch makes that possible. This innovative watch is like having a small planetarium attached to your wrist. It is an incredibly precise feat of engineering, artistic craftsmanship, and elegant design. As well as showing the time here on Earth, it shows the movements of six of the planets in our solar system as they orbit around the sun.
Those planets are all represented by precious/semiprecious stones. The stones were chosen to match the color of the planet in question – serpentine for Mercury, chloromelanite for Venus, turquoise for the Earth, red jasper for Mars, blue agate for Jupiter and sugilite for Saturn. From that list, you can see that Uranus and Neptune are missing. They were excluded because their orbits are so long that to include them on the astronomical watch would make it impractical. Uranus takes around 84 earth years to revolve around the sun, while Neptune takes 164. You wouldn’t see Neptune make a full orbit in your lifetime. The planetarium watch is made from 396 delicate pieces and is not surprising to know that it comes with a hefty price tag. Check price on Van Cleef & Arpels!
