On the way to the hottest planet

The closest planet to Earth is Venus. Named after the Roman goddess of love and feminine beauty, her size and mass are very similar to those of our planet. It is also the one known as the Shepherd's Star. When visible in the evening sky, it always appears first. According to legend, shepherds used this star, the brightest in the sky after the Sun and the Moon, to find their way around.

Venus is arid, it is very, very hot there, it is a kind of gigantic desert of sand and volcanoes. It would have been provided with an ocean of liquid water, as well as living surface temperatures, between 2.9 billion and 715 million years before our era. But its ocean evaporated, its water molecules shattered by intense ultraviolet light, its hydrogen and oxygen atoms were lost in space ...

LAB-ONE sandblasted titanium

The sandblasted Titanium model with its red timer is a tribute to the hottest planet in our solar system. It is a nod to this territory so close and yet almost inaccessible. Indeed, since the beginning of the 1960s, only twenty or so probes have been able to visit him. Extreme pressure and temperature conditions make life difficult for electronic instruments, making module landings or dives into the atmosphere complicated or impossible.

 

The Russian space agency Roscosmos plans to send to Venus, by 2029, an orbiter, an atmospheric probe and a small craft (LLISSE) designed by NASA to survive at least 60 days on the planet's surface. Perhaps this time the sulphurous planet will let itself be discovered?

A box of raw appearance light as made up of thousands of grains of sand

The box is in sandblasted titanium. To obtain this material, we subjected the titanium to a bombardment of ceramic balls then to a hardening treatment. This gives the case an irregular appearance, and it is reminiscent of the sand grains of the beaches whipped by the wind which constitute the only relief on the planet.

The titanium guarantees the watch great resistance to shocks, chemicals and corrosion while offering incredible lightness.
