Christiaan van der Klaauw Masterpiece Astrolabium

Introduced in 2003, the CVDK Astrolabium watch from the Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Masterpieces collection draws its inspiration from the age-old astrolabes.

Christiaan van der Klaauw Masterpiece Astrolabium

The Christiaan van der Klaauw Masterpiece Astrolabium watch not only displays the date, but also the mean local solar time, the time and the place where the Sun rises or sets, the position of the Sun and the Moon on the ecliptic, the position of the descending and ascending node of the lunar orbit (the dragon hand), and indicates both solar and lunar eclipse.

The self-winding mechanism features a custom rotor based on the theme of the Astrolabium, in which the beautiful Azimuth lines are visible. The movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.
