C. van der Klaauw Hypernova ‘White’
Christiaan van der Klaauw enjoyed his education at the Instrument makers school, founded in 1901 by Nobel laureate prof. Heike Kamerlingh Onnes. In the lovely Frysian village of Joure, Van der Klaauw started designing and developing his own handmade astronomical movements in the seventies.
With the Pendule, Van der Klaauw won the prestigious medaille d’or in Basel in 1992, settling him among the watch making elite. In the late nineties, Van der Klaauw designed one of his most innovative movements, the Planetarium. It was the world’s first planetarium to fit in a watch.
The beautiful CVDK Hypernova combines a full chronograph with a day/night indication, an ingenious date display, and a beautiful super luminova moon phase indication.
The super luminova moon phase can be read at the 6 o’clock position. When the Moon is left of the center, it is in its first quarter. When the Moon is in the center, it is full Moon and right of the center, it is in its last quarter. If the Moon is not visible, it is new Moon.
The CVDK Hypernova is equipped with the large case, measuring 44 mm in diameter.
