Christiaan van der Klaauw
C. van der Klaauw Satellite du Monde
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 Satellite du Monde CK-4 was first made in limited numbers in 1994. This second version is even more beautiful. It displays sunrise and dawn across the globe as well as the moon phase.
