Planets and the ecliptic. (Not to scale!) The planets orbit the Sun in the same plane - it's called the ecliptic. It's almost as though they're all rolling around on a giant tabletop. BUT there is no tabletop & the orbits are slightly tilted in various ways. BTW they also don't line up nicely like this.
Midnight Planétarium is an incredible timepiece that features six bejewelled planets in our solar system accurately rotating around our Sun. The watch was created by Van Cleef & Arpels in partnership with Christiaan van der Klaauw. After three years of work, Midnight Planétarium was unveiled at the annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), held every January in Geneva. The watch contains 396 separate parts and features the six closest planets accurately orbiting the sun.
