FrontRunners: Time Capsule

This past January marked the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s first observation of Jupiter’s moons, an occasion that inspired Officine Panerai to try an astronomical venture of its own. The Officine Panerai Jupiterium (www.panerai.com), which the company announced in January, has 1,476 components and renders the movement of Earth’s moon, Jupiter, and the four Jupiterian moons that were visible in Galileo’s time. The desktop horologe accurately tracks the course of the moons and the planet, including the 11.87-year orbit of Jupiter around the sun. The price for the Jupiterium, of which only three will be made and one sold, will likely exceed $2 million.
