Récital 20 Asterium – A mechanical poemThe concept expressed by Récital 20 Asterium is striking. It still tells the time where we live, down here on Earth.

It seems to hover above the whole timepiece. Blue and peaceful, it is a poetic but also highly practical way of telling time: through the observation of stars.

Récital 20 Asterium – A mechanical poem

The concept expressed by Récital 20 Asterium is striking. It still tells the time where we live, down here on Earth. But it also evokes another way of experiencing time, from the starspoint of view.

At 12 o’clock, a dome of translucent blue sapphire features the constellations. It seems to hover above the whole timepiece. Blue and peaceful, it is a poetic but also highly practical way of telling time: through the observation of stars. The stars and constellations mapped are the ones visible from the Earth, in the northern hemisphere. By indicating the four cardinal points, a uniquely-shaped hand allows the star enthusiast to find his bearings in the dark.

A sidereal annual calendar is displayed on the back of the timepiece. This type of calendar is defined by the sun returning to the same position relative to the stars and lasts 365.25 days. This accuracy makes the sidereal year easier to compute that the civil year – which requires adding a leap day every four year. Récital 20 Astérium is a striking timepiece, that leaves no one unmoved, like a mechanical poem.
