Astronomical Watch to Keep a Track of the Planetary Orbit




The makers of Luxury watches have successfully created a wristwatch which can show the planetary Orbit. The duo of Van Cleef & Arpel have developed this wrist watch and named it the Midnight Planétarium timepiece. The best part of this development is, unlike any other usual watches it can effectively keep a track of the real-time orbit of the planets.

As per the developer this watch is covered with 18-carat gold and holds a variety of different semi-precious gems. The makers have said that the company has "achieved its dream of reducing the scale of the heavens to the dimensions of a wristwatch.

The officials have also added, each planet is shown with a different colored stone such as Earth is turquoise, Mercury is serpentine, Venus is chloromelanite and so on. Additionally, a pink gold shooting star and the sun have been added as other outer space objects on the watch, said the makers.

Each planet actually orbits with their real-time depictions. Moreover, a self-winding mechanism moves each miniature planet in true time to its actual orbit length.
