Citizen – a leading Japanese watch brand – have debuted a mind-blowing exhibition, which was created out of 80,000 watch parts

Joining forces with Parisian architecture company DGT, Citizen have transformed their watch parts into a glittering gold art installation. Created out of over 80,000 suspended base plates, the art work was directly inspired by the big bang theory.

"Without light we never would have had the wonders of the universes," said the team. "The richness of our planet or the joy and pleasure of our life."
