The Raketa ‘Copernicus’ 0230 is a Limited Edition Cosmic Timepiece.
Step back in time with this exquisite automatic watch, limited to 300 pieces, as it transports you to the ancient art of timekeeping. Imagine our ancestors gazing at the heavens to decipher time, a tradition beautifully embodied in this timepiece. To read the time, simply observe the graceful dance of three planets, represented by the watch’s three hands, as they revolve around the radiant sun, depicted by a captivating yellow agate stone. Against a backdrop of a dark blue aventurine stone adorned with sparkling stars, you’ll be enchanted by the celestial choreography.
The inspiration behind the ‘Copernicus’ 0230 by Soviet Raketa designers is truly fascinating. Here, the minute hand, symbolizing Earth, orbits the watch dial in one hour, while the intermediary hour hand, representing Jupiter, completes its circuit in twelve hours. This mirrors the Earth’s orbit around the sun in one year and Jupiter’s in twelve years, offering an intriguing connection between our timekeeping and the cosmos.
Crafted by the skilled Russian engineers of the Raketa Watch Factory, the Raketa ‘Copernicus’ 0230 boasts an automatic movement meticulously designed and produced in Saint Petersburg.
