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.

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.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.
