VAN CLEEF & ARPELS MIDNIGHT PLANÉTARIUM WATCH
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”.
