Christiaan van der Klaauw CVDK Real Moon Joure

The Real Moon series from the Astronomical Watches line by Christiaan van der Klaauw has several masterpieces with a three-dimensional miniature Moon at the 6 o’clock position as a unique complication. Each Real Moon watch displays the current phase of the moon by means of a rotating moon. It takes the moon 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes (29,530589 days) to rotate around the Earth. The complication in the Real Moon Joure deviates from this by only 1 day in every 5400 years. The Real Moon Joure, the beautifully crafted, pristine watch, in all its simplicity, looks breathtaking with as a unique ‘eye catcher’ the rotating Moon.
