Ulysses Nardin's Planet Earth clock is a jaw-dropping timepiece. How can you not feel like a criminal mastermind with an intricate mini universe perched on a pretty mahogany box sitting atop your desk?
The outer transparent, crystal globe represents Earth, bearing outlines of the continents and oceans. The inner sphere shows at all times the exact position of Sun, Moon and fixed stars in relation to any location on Earth. So it's not really a whole universe, but you get the idea. Rotating at the speed of a real day, one revolution takes 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds. Separate Sun and Moon hands rotate once in 24 hours indicating which parts of the Earth is illuminated by each celestial body. Finally, a DRAGON hand moves with the signs of the zodiac. Dragons, people! Now I really want this thing.
After you get past the astrological drool factor, a standard clock on the front panel of the mahogany case indicates the hours and minutes. The Earth clock comes in a limited edition of 99 pieces. [Ulysses Nardin via DVICE]
