The Solar System Watch Moves in Real-Time... wow! (video)

Are you in the market for a new wristwatch... and NOT interested in another boring design everybody else has...?? 
This new watch by Van Cleef & Arpel is not only unique to look at, but also keeps track of time at the galactic level with the movement of our solar system in real-time.... 

The watch face includes 6 of our 9 planets made from tiny precious gemstones and houses an incredible 396 tiny moving parts. The watch is called the Complication Poétique Midnight Planétarium. It is expected to be available later this year with a price tag of $245,000....!!! 
So while Mercury will make a lap around the watch's face in just 88 days, Venus will require 224, and Earth of course does it in exactly a year. Saturn, on the other hand, the farthest planet from the sun included on this piece, won't make it back to its starting position for a whopping 29 and a half years.
