    I guess "astronomical" watches are a thing. Behold the Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 from Vacheron Constantin of Geneva. Around $1 million USD.

    way too busy for a wrist watch but would be a super cool conversation piece if scaled up to mantle clock size

    And if mantle clock size isn't large enough, you can always get a few ideas from this astronomical clock in Prague, installed in 1410:
