In the age of astonishing technology the love for wrist watches has not gone down. The Midnight Planétarium Watch from the Van Cleef & Arpels’ Poetic Complication is here to fulfill the love. It was displayed in the annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie at Geneva. The Dutch watchmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw designed this incredible eye catching wrist watch. It not only tells the time through a shooting star at the edge of the dial but also 6 planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) from our solar system with their real time rotation around the sun. The colors representing the planets are, serpentine for Mercury, chloromelanite for Venus, turquoise for Earth, red jasper for Mars, blue agate for Jupiter and sugilite for Saturn. The Mercury will complete its rotation around the watch’s face in just 88 days, Venus will in 224 days, Saturn in 29.35 years and Earth completes its rotation in a year. The watch features 44mm 18kt rose-gold dial with solid back, a leather strap and folding buckles. The creation reminds the harmony and beauty to timeless world.
