If you’ve ever wondered when Jupiter will next be aligned with Mars, Van Cleef & Arpels has a watch that will tell you. Its new Midnight Planetarium Poetic Complication watch has six rotating disks, each bearing a tiny sphere representing one of the six planets visible with the naked eye.
The disks rotate at different speeds so that each sphere makes one revolution around the dial in the time it takes the actual planet it represents – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn – to orbit the sun. Mercury in 88 days, Venus in 224, Earth in a year, Mars in 687 days, Jupiter in 12 years and Saturn in 29. It’s a very complex watch and a true display of supreme watchmaking. Time is indicated by a shooting-star symbol rotating around the dial’s circumference. Leveraging the brand’s specialty in jewelry, each of the planets are represented by precious and semi-precious stones, ranging from red jasper to serpentine and turquoise. An even more extravagant edition is available with baguette-cut diamonds set into the bezel.
The planet module was designed by Christian van der Klaauw, renowned for his movements featuring astronomical indications. The movement is self-winding and contains 396 components. The case is 44 mm in diameter and made of rose gold. The dial is made of aventurine and the planets of semiprecious stones. Price: about $245,000; a diamond-set version will be about $330,000.
This map portrays 44 full length Disney animated features and 13 Pixar animated features and their respective locations on earth:
Brother Bear: Northern Canada, Alaska.
Meet the Robinsons: US/Canada. Lewis mentions being from Canada but the tone of the family seems like they are American.
Bambi: Northern US/Canada. Though originally a German story, the collection of animals clearly indicates North American wildlife.
Fox and the Hound: Norther US/Canada. Same argument as Bambi.
Chicken Little: US. Generally American feel but no specifics given.
Home on the Range: Western US.
Lady and the Tramp: Eastern US. Small town America feel. Shown celebrating forth of July.
A Bug’s Life : Texas/Mexico Border
Icabod Crane: Sleepy Hollow
Oliver and Company: New York City
Incredibles: Midwest/Chicago city feel
Toy Story: Small Michigan town
Lilo and Stitch: Hawaii
Princess and the Frog: New Orleans
Rescuers: New Orleans/ Bayou
Dumbo: Florida. Where he is “born” and a bulk of the movie takes place.
Little Mermaid: Caribbean. Though the story is Danish, the wildlife is clearly tropical, Sebastian is Jamaican and it is very reasonable to have European royals in their settlements. Please do not leave any comments on the position of this movie. I realize the original story is Danish and there are only fair skinned people in the movie. I have heard every argument from every side and I’m going with MY OPINION on this one. The movie is too inconsistent to make a 100% correct ID on the location so I’m going with what seems right to me given all the evidence.

The Great Mouse Detective: England
Sword and the Stone: England
