Ariadne by Christiaan van der Klaauw

In Greek mythology the beautiful Ariadne was the immortal wife of the god of wine Dionysus. The beauty of Ariadne that swept Dionysus off his feet serves as a metaphor for the beauty of the ‘Ariadne’ timepiece of Christiaan van der Klaauw. It is the only chronograph in the collection, which gives the watch a sporty appearance that appeals to many admirers of Christiaan van der Klaauw.

This really beautiful watch has many functions. The day, date and month can be read at a single glance. The position of the Moon can be read at the bottom, in the six o’clock position. When the Moon is left of centre, it is in its first quarter. When the image is in the centre, it is full Moon. And right of centre, it is in its last quarter. If the Moon is not visible, you see a beautiful starry sky in the window, and it is a new Moon. Apart from the hours, minutes and seconds, the ‘Ariadne’ has all functions that can be expected of a real chronograph. It even has a 30-minute and a 24-hour indication.
