Miracle Box — Earth, the center of the universe
 Greek-Roman astronomer Ptolemy was one of the founders of geography. Geography can be traced back to a century ago, when scholars were fascinated by the interaction between the earth and the sun, the earth, and the moon, and the impact of these interactions on the climate. Although the earth painted by Ptolemy is not complete, the earth in his pen has been spherical, and the geometry he invented is still used in the longitude and latitude grids of today’s maps. The geographies and maps in it were translated into Latin by D’Angelo. Columbus’s research points further inspired him to implement his sailing plan.
Inlaid stone, micro painting and gold dust painting

 This GP Girard Perregaux watch embodies the essence of stone setting and is embellished by technically sophisticated micro-painters. The carefully cut young stone pieces are polished and inlaid as gems; then different materials are used to present different levels of blue such as lapis lazuli and Dongling, or warm white tones of different depths such as ultra-white mother of pearl, forming ignorance Fields of ocean and borders. The GP watchmaker patiently hardened the gold powder to a colored surface, representing the land and its boundaries.
Miracle Box — the sun, the center of the universe
 Geocentric science regards the earth as the center of the universe. Conversely, heliocentric science regards the sun as the center of the universe’s thousands of celestial bodies, including the earth. This groundbreaking theory stems from a scientific and philosophical revolution in the mid-16th century. The astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) who put forward this theory, whose book ‘On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres’ was first published in Nuremberg in 1543, when the Polish doctor and The doctor is still alive. Later history books found that the scholar had boldly put forward a subversive theory 30 years ago, that is, the ‘Copernican Revolution’ praised by later generations. Since then, our perception is that the moon orbits the earth, while the earth orbits and orbits the sun, subverting Ptolemy and theories of the past century.
Stone setting and micro painting

 Copernicus’s 24-hour revival is based on the time of the earth’s rotation and the beginning of a new day. When interpreted in soft warm colors-like the earth stares at the sun, it is gradually illuminated by warm sunlight. GP Girard-Perregaux has chosen Tangling blue and gray jade to combine different shades of turquoise orange. Like the dial maps of other designs in the series, this design uses unique watchmaking techniques, plus micro-painters and other patiently craftsmen. The finished product presents a stunning visual masterpiece: cut and polished delicate stonework to form a lifelike mosaic, which is the ultimate aesthetic.
Miracle Box — Armillary Sphere

 Cartographer and cosmologist Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650-1718) is a manufacturer of globes. This Franciscan monk was born and died in Venice. He is also a theologian who has compiled an encyclopedia and made a great contribution to world history. He created two giant armillary spheres in Paris to pay tribute to the sun king, Louis XIV. The two armillary spheres have a diameter of 382 cm and each weigh about 2 tons. One is a terrestrial instrument, and the other is a celestial instrument, detailing the sky that contemporary people think is the birth day of the monarch, that is, September 5, 1638. There are 1,880 celestial bodies on that astronomical instrument, and 72 constellations expressed by beasts and mythical figures. The entire masterpiece is all blue, divided into 12 areas, symbolizing the season when the sun passes through the zodiac signs, all painted by French painter Jean-Baptiste Corneille.
Arched sapphire, hand carved and drawn
