If you are a fan of classy and cool watches, this incredible collaboration by the famous designers Can Cleef & Arpels and Christiaan van der Klaauw has produced arguably one of the greatest watches ever. They called it the Midnight Planetarium watch, and its amazingly creative design gives you the chance to glance our solar system and to gently and classy carry it in your pocket. It also has the amazing “lucky day” feature that shows exactly where the Earth falls with a stair painted next to it on any given day. It consist of no less than 396 parts and it has precious and semi-precious stones that represents each of the six planets that are located closest to the Sun (the only two exceptions are Uranus and Neptune, because they take too much time to circle around the Sun and could not fit onto the screen).  But all the others have the full lengths of their rotation displayed onto the watch with: Mercury, 88 days, Venus and its 224 days, our own Earth with 365 days (just in case someone didn’t know that by now), Mars with 687 days, Jupiter and Saturn with respectively 12 and 29 years (which, to be honest, is a bit too much for someone to gaze at their wrist, but anyway). But there is only one little minor inconvenience about it – the design is not the only astronomical thing about it, as it is prized at the colossal, even cosmic 245,000 US dollars! But still, given chance there is an attraction here that should not be missed.
