The Midnight Planetarium watch from Van Cleef & Arpel’s Poetic Astronomy series tells time via a shooting star that rotates along the outmost area of the face, as well as, on a much bigger scale, movement of the planets.
Featuring an amazing 396 moving parts, the Midnight Planétarium displays an accurate representation of six planets and their rotations around the sun, from Mercury’s swift 88-day trip, to Earth’s 365 day circle, to Saturn, which takes 29 years. While it doesn’t quite top the list of the most expensive watches on the market, the standard version of the watch comes in pink gold and goes for $245,000. [Purchase]
Make-Up Meets Chinese Art | by Red Hong Yi
Since we’re only halfway through the Chinese New Year celebrations, I thought I’d share fellow Malaysian Hong Yi’s latest series in commemoration of CNY. Using everyday cosmetics including mascara, eyeliner, nail polish, loose powder, even falsies & eyeliner pencil shavings (yes, she did!!) to create oriental works of art, Hong Yi has been and will continue to release one new piece of artwork each day for all 15 days of the new year celebrations, Her pieces are inspired by Chinese art, culture and tradition. Show your support and follow her on Instagram to see what she has in store for the next few days!
“Chinese art requires a lot of precision and skill – one stroke can make a huge difference I felt that this is similar to how a woman carefully puts on her make-up.”
