An elegant display of the cosmos, the Raketa Copernicus timepiece shows the time using the planet-themed hour, minute and second hands moving against a backdrop of stars. Raketa is a watchmaking company that was founded in order to commemorate the first Russian manned space flight. The concept of space has always inspired Raketa watches, and the Copernicus is no different. Copernicus was inspired by the discovery made in the 16th century by the astronomer, Copernicus, who came to the conclusion that the sun is at the centre of our solar system and the planets encircle it, providing a revolutionary new understanding of space.
The Copernicus features a dial detailed with two semi-precious stones, including a rich yellow agate to represent the sun and a dark blue aventurine that sparkles like a starry night. This automatic watch features a stainless steel case measuring 40.5 millimeters in diameter, giving it a nice wrist presence and making its details easy to see. The dial is protected by sapphire crystal glass, which assures the dome is protected against scratches and nicks. The timepiece connects to the wrist by way of an elegant genuine leather strap measuring 22 millimeters in width. It has a water resistance of 5 ATM, protecting it against the daily moisture that it may come in contact with.
