Housed in a lightweight 43mm width x 51.73mm length x 14.55mm thickness case made of 54-layered ThinPly carbon composite used in aerospace applications, the Lightspeed features a satellite hour display under the domed sapphire crystal canopy and showcases the speed of light while revealing a 3D planetarium highlighting eight celestial bodies from our solar system, offering eight points of reference.
