It's good that this award is for the Best Complication, and not for Best Name. I'm obliged to say that this watch has 23 complications but I will also say that it does not matter. I reply with a crushing logic. We're awarding Best, not Most.
What is then the best complexity as it appears in the Vacheron-Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication? It's the tripartite presentation of time as meansolar time (also known as real solar time),Rolex Explorer Replica
sidereal time and sidereal date.
This horological encomium will be interrupted briefly to discuss the different types of time. The system of 24-hour days and 365-day year that humans invented to cope with the fact (surprise!) There aren't 365 days or 24 hours in the real solar year. The sidereal time is based on the stars in other solar systems, not the one in our own.breitling replica watches
This seems like a pointless thing to do, but so does most of what we humans do. It's like playing Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps with the same metronome while simultaneously playing Kraftwerk’s Greatest Hits, Buddy Rich's 45-minute jazz drum solo, and Kraftwerk’s Greatest Hits.
Now back to the regularly scheduled tribute. Vacheron-Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication combines these three very different rhythms with clarity and coherence, and with a running equation of time indication (extra special jumbo bonus!) This watch intuitively explains the difference between real solar time and mean solar time. Rolex Explorer Replica's Les Cabinotiers Celestia astronomical grand complication won the Best Complication Award for this reason. The Best Name award was not won.
