Christiaan van der Klaauw Orion III
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.
This specific Orion CK3 Dates back to 2002, and is executed in a 40mm rose gold case. It features a date complication and a stunning guilloche dial.
Sometimes you can go Dutch instead of Swiss! 🙂
