The Midnight Planétarium watch was a collaboration between Van Cleef & Arpels and Christiaan van der Klaauw. The watch is made of 396 separate parts and features the six closest planets orbiting the sun in real time (Uranus and Neptune were left out because you probably won’t live long enough to see either one complete a full orbit).
The cost of this watch … you entire lifetime’s salary. Well, £150,000, or about US$251,000, so it may as well be. It’s about several years’ salary at any rate, and we’re obviously not the kinda guys who are going to spend a quarter of a million dollars on a watch unless we win the SuperLotto, but …
Oh my gods, it’s so beautiful.
