Christiaan van der Klaauw wins European Watch of 2014

Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches winner ‘European Watch of the Year 2014’ in London.

In November, the ‘CVDK Real Moon Joure’ of Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches was rewarded as European Watch of the Year 2014. The masterpiece was unanimously chosen as winner by an international jury in London.

This complicated timepiece has a very special Aventurine glass dial visualising a starry sky. At the 6-o’clock position there is a rotating 3D miniature moon which reflects the actual moon phase. The moon revolves around the earth in 29.530588853 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.

We congratulate Christiaan on winning this incredible award. For more information, please click here.
