Hours, Minutes, Date, Day, Month, Year, Moonphase, Planetarium Movement
Satin-finish alligator, square scale
Earth and Mercury, Venus,
Mars, Jupiter and Saturn – all visible from Earth with the naked
eye – are set in motion thanks to a self-winding mechanical
movement of great complexity: equipped with an exclusive
module developed in partnership with the Maison Christiaan
van der Klaauw, it contains 396 separate parts. The movement
of each planet is true to its genuine length of orbit: it will take
Saturn over 29 years to make a complete circuit of the dial,
while Jupiter will take almost 12 years, Mars 687 days, Earth 365
days, Venus 224 days and Mercury 88 days.
This new Poetic Complication timepiece provides a miniature
representation of the movement of six planets around the sun
and their position at any given time.
