Gaia 23°27' Watch
Wow, this little piece of heaven is featured on Europastar and is called Gaïa 23°27'. The watch was created by Anatole Le Grand Edouard. The Gaïa 23°27' is a jewelry watch that features a bracelet of pink gold spheres that are slightly flattened on the interior. The main sphere, which has a diameter equal to 500 millionths of the diameter of the Earth, features an automatic calibre movement which is set off center and inclined to 23°27' which is the angle of inclination of the Earth’s rotational axis to its elliptical plane. The watch is full of celestial themes like comets, planets and stars rendered in diamonds, rubies and colored sapphires. The center is supposed to invoke the sun (although it reminds me a bit of a bloodshot eye). A total of 440 diamonds and 519 gemstones went into the piece and the tiny dial is actually a 2.32 carat ruby cabochon with a hole in the center. The watch is the first model in a limited series of 22 pieces.
