Christiaan van der Klaauw ‘Retro Moon’ 18k Pink Gold
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 Moon Retrograde features Van Der klaauw’s first retrograde complication. The moon phase is indicated by a pointer, which jumps back to its initial position after each cycle. Housed in a 18k rose gold case, this watch features a mesmerizing dial and unique complication. A real stunner!
