Swiss luxury brand company Bovet has been turning heads with its luxury timepieces for nearly 200 years now, but the company is not content to simply rest on its laurels, if its brand new Recital 22 Grand Recital is anything to go by.

This particular luxury timepiece is clearly inspired by the complexity and beauty of the interstellar world, with its craftsmanship paying homage to the Earth, sun and moon, with a flying tourbillon depicting the movements of the sun. The miniature moon circles the terrestrial map exactly once every 29.53 days, which corresponds to the moon's real-life timing.

In an age of smartphones and wall clocks galore, wristwatches have become fashion showpieces rather than time-keeping devices. At a price of around half a million dollars, the Recital 22 Grand Recital is designed for those who are determined to make a statement.
