The Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Copernicus Celestial Spheres replica watch is interpreted in three different dials that pay tribute to Nicolaus Copernicus and the scientific revolution.
The time is displayed by two gold peripheral hands with a skeletonized hand to indicate the hours, and a solid hand to indicate the minutes.
