Christiaan van der Klaauw Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio

Introduced in 2016, the CVDK Real Moon Joure Scorpio was the first model in a series of twelve unique zodiac sign watches from Christiaan van der Klaauw. Its beautifully engraved dial bears the signature of Kees Engelbarts, the famous master engraver.

Christiaan van der Klaauw Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio

The Christiaan van der Klaauw Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio watch is made with a special technique called ‘Mokume-gane’. First made in 17th-century Japan, Mokume-gane was used for decorating samurai swords. It is a metalworking procedure which produces a mixed-metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns.

Furthermore this piece unique represents a special interpretation of the brand’s rotating 3-dimensional real moon indicating the true moon phase. The moon orbits around the earth every 29.5305889 days. The hand-made 3D miniature moon indicates the moon phase so accurately that it deviates only one day in 11,000 years. It is the most accurate 3D moon phase in the world ever incorporated in a mechanical watch.
