VAN CLEEF & AR­PELS MID­NIGHT PLANÉTARIU­M WATCH

Solitaire (Singapore) - - Timeless – Men’s Watches -

French jew­eller Van Cleef & Ar­pels el­e­vates that third-grade sci­ence project into a more em­bel­lished scale of the so­lar sys­tem in an en­thralling Mid­night Planétariu­m time­piece. En­cir­cling the dial in con­cen­tric cir­cles, the Sun and six plan­ets are each set with dif­fer­ent semi-pre­cious stones. From turquoise to ser­pen­tine, each beaded planet cre­ates a vis­ual con­trast against the glit­ter­ing aven­turine dial, os­cil­lat­ing in real time. The au­to­matic me­chan­i­cal move­ment is ex­clu­sively de­vel­oped for Van Cleef & Ar­pels by Dutch watch­maker Chris­ti­aan Van der Klaauw. Along the pe­riph­ery mark are the 24-hour and month in­di­ca­tors, with a ro­tat­ing bezel to de­ter­mine the po­si­tion of the “lucky star”.
