Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Planétarium
This year, Van Cleef & Arpels launched the Lady Arpels Planétarium, a smaller version of the Planétarium for men that was introduced back in 2014. The watch is equipped with an astronomical complication that tracks the movement of the planets around the sun where each heavenly body features a different material: Pink gold for the sun, pink mother-of-pearl for Mercury, green enamel for Venus, turquoise for Earth and a diamond for the Moon, all set against a blue aventurine dial in a white gold case with diamonds. Most impressively, each planet will orbit around the watch at its exact speed in real life, with Mercury going around in 88 days, Venus in 224 days, Earth in 365 days and the Moon rotating in 29.5 days. At the case back, there is also a crescent moon with “serti neige” style diamonds and an Earth in turquoise. There are also two apertures displaying the day, month and year.
