Ceres 1974 Astronomical Complication by Christiaan van der Klaauw

Ceres 1974 is a new astronomical timepiece from Atelier Christiaan van der Klaauw’s Collection of the Stars line. The watchmaker had already launched a timepiece named CERES some years ago. The Ceres 1974 is a brand new astronomical complication. The year 1974 refers to the foundation date of the Christiaan van der Klaauw atelier. At the ‘six o’clock position’ the phase of the Moon is shown.

The Moon has four phases: New Moon, in which the Moon is not visible; the First Quarter, in which the right-hand half is visible; then comes the Full Moon; and finally the Moon enters the Last Quarter, in which the left-hand side is visible. The classic watch has a modest design, and consequently radiates distinct class.
