Van Cleef & Arpels Complication Poetique Midnight Planetarium Watch

Complication Poetique Midnight Planetarium Watch has six rotating disks, each bearing a tiny sphere representing one of the six planets visible with the naked eye.

The disks rotate at different speeds so that each sphere makes one revolution around the dial in the time it takes the actual planet it represents – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn – to orbit the sun.  Mercury in 88 days, Venus in 224, Earth in a year, Mars in 687 days, Jupiter in 12 years and Saturn in 29. It’s a very complex watch and a true display of supreme watchmaking. Time is indicated by a shooting-star symbol rotating around the dial’s circumference. Leveraging the brand’s specialty in jewelry, each of the planets are represented by precious and semi-precious stones, ranging from red jasper to serpentine and turquoise. An even more extravagant edition is available with baguette-cut diamonds set into the bezel.

The planet module was designed by Christian van der Klaauw, renowned for his movements featuring astronomical indications. The movement is self-winding and contains 396 components.  The case is 44 mm in diameter and made of rose gold. The dial is made of aventurine and the planets of semiprecious stones.  Price: about $245,000; a diamond-set version will be about $330,000.

The CW is like that toxic ex that you know you should distance yourself from because you deserve better than them and you know they’ll just disappoint you but for some reason you keep running back to them

Victor Headcanon

When Victor takes a bit longer to fall asleep or when he’s the first awake, he has a tendency to watch Yuri sleep. It soothes him to see and hear Yuri’s slow and steady breathing and to see his messy hair on the pillow beside him. Somehow the effect is amplified if Makkachin has chosen to sleep closer to Yuri, and Victor just smiles and takes it all in.
