Forget smartwatches – wear this £187,300.00 PLANETARIUM on your wrist

  • Midnight Planétarium watch rotates six planets around a tiny rose gold sun
  • Mercury will make a lap around the watch’s face in just 88 days, Venus will require 224, Saturn in 29.35 years and Earth completes a rotation in a year
  • Inspired by planetariums, the watch’s movement was created for Van Cleef & Arpels’ by Dutch watchmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw

If there was ever a timepiece that would silence the boasts of smug smartwatch wearers, then this would be it.

The magnificent Complication Poétique Midnight Planétarium lets you tell the time by placing a microcosm of the solar system on your wrist.

The intricate watch incorporates Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn — all the planets visible to the naked eye.

Instead of hands denoting the hours and minutes, planets rotate around a tiny rose gold sun in real-time.

Mercury will make a lap around the watch’s face in just 88 days, Venus will require 224, and Earth of does it in one year.

Saturn, which is the farthest planet from the sun in the watch, won’t make it back to its starting position for 29.5 years. A shooting star on the outer edge of the watch face indicates the time.
