Deftly blending technology and craftsmanship, Vacheron Constantin’s all-new Copernicus Celestial Spheres collection pays tribute to Nicolaus Copernicus and the great astronomical discovery, the theory of heliocentrism. This new collection is offered in three different dial versions and houses an original patent-pending caliber featuring peripheral hands. It reproduces the theory of heliocentrism with Earth’s rotation during its yearly orbit around the sun (365.2423 days) and Earth’s rotation on itself (24 hours). Incredibly precise, the “Earth” in this watch only needs to be adjusted every 8,000 years. This 18K white gold version features a hand-painted dial under layers of laser- and hand-engraved sapphire crystal.
