style=”text-align: justify;”>style=”font-size: 13px;”>Midnight Planétarium is a luxuriuos masterpiece of science and design – a watch that exhibits 6 planets from the Photo voltaic system rotating across the Solar of their precise tempo. The creation of this spectacular machine took three complete years of labor and 396 separate items – which is why it prices $245,000.
style=”text-align: justify;”>The planets are represented with tiny valuable and semiprecous stones: Mercury (serpentine), Venus (chloromelanite), Earth (turquoise), Mars (purple jasper), Jupiter (blue agate), and Saturn (sugilite). 2 planets from the Photo voltaic System weren’t included given the tempo of their rotation across the Solar tempo, which might hardly be noticeable inside a human lifetime: it takes over 84 years for Uranus and 164 years for Neptune to finish full revolutions!
