INTRODUCING: The Raketa Copernic

Post by koimaster » September 16th 2019, 9:47am

Russian watchmaker Raketa has just released a modern interpretation of its classic Raketa Copernic wristwatch, and it is a uniquely compelling timepiece.


First created in the 1980s in the twilight of the Soviet Union, the original Copernic was made to honour the renaissance-era Polish astronomer and mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus. Like the original, the new homage piece has a fascinating and novel dial that portrays the earth and moon’s rotation around the sun in space. ... -copernic/

The original watch of that name by Raketa was kind of cool. The reissue...well, it doesn't look bad, but the pricing blows. The way I see it, the average Miyota 9015 looks better than this.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.
