Astronomy, time in its purest form is the source of inspiration for the most famous watchmaker in the Netherlands. In 1974 Van der Klaauw started his own business and presented his first clock, with astronomical complications. 


It was the start of an exceptional story. Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches is the only atelier in the world that is completely devoted to the design and the production of exclusive, hand-made astronomical watches.

The mechanical masterpieces, from the astonishing ‘CVDK Planetarium’ - with the smallest mechanical planetarium in the world - to the ‘CVDK Real Moon Joure’ - with the most accurate 3D moon phase in the world - are all designed and manufactured in the modern atelier of Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches in Heerenveen - The Netherlands.
