Christiaan van der Klaauw lists its starring SalonQP chronographs as the CVDK Planetarium, CVDK Real Moon Joure, CVDK Real Moon Tides, CVDK Titan Perpetual and CVDK Orion. Shining out from these is the CDVK Planetarium, which contains the smallest mechanical planetarium in the world.
The brand’s in-house designed module gives the user the smallest mechanical heliocentric planetarium in the world. It displays real time the solar orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. It also shows the minutes, hours, date and month. The result is a magnificent spectacle that continues to fascinate in all its complex mechanical beauty, says the brand.
The watch has been intricately designed and executed, according to Christiaan van der Klaauw. It says its Planetarium is one of the most complicated watches in its collection and is a fitting tribute to the grand masters of planetarium design, such as Nicolaas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Christiaan Huygens and Eise Eisinga.
The smallest mechanical planetarium in the world is located at the 6 o’clock position. The sun is positioned exactly in the middle of the planetarium. The planet closest to the sun is Mercury. Mercury is followed by Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
