Inspired by the universe itself, the Copernicus is a space-based timepiece whose appearance stands out among all others. The dial features a sparkling, starry night look that serves as a background for the planet-themed minute, second and hour hands as they move around the dial and keep the time. The first Raketa timepiece was created in celebration of the first manned mission to space in Russia, and the Raketa Copernicus keeps up the tradition. Its unique inspiration comes from its namesake, celebrating the discovery made by the astronomer Copernicus. Copernicus discovered that the planets circle the sun instead of the other way around, which changed the way people at the time understood space. 

Raketa Copernicus Limited Edition

This rich timepiece uses two semi-precious stones to create its dial: dark blue aventurine that looks like a starry night and yellow agate to represent the sun. All of this is housed within its stainless steel case which measures 40.5 millimeters in diameter. It has a generous wrist presence without feeling too big and bulky to comfortably wear all day. Protecting the dial is a sapphire crystal glass that prevents the dome from nicks and scratches. The watch boasts a 5 ATM water resistance, which helps it resist water damage from everyday wear. The Copernicus watch attaches to the wrist using a 22-millimeter wide genuine leather strap.
