Astronomy - time in its purest form - is the source of inspiration for the most famous watch maker in the Netherlands. In 1974, Christiaan 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 production of exclusive, hand-made astronomical watches. And V Couture is the only retailer in Northern America where you can purchase one of these haute horlogerie masterpieces.
Each mechanical timepiece - 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 - is designed and manufactured in the modern atelier of Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches in Heerenveen - The Netherlands.
Every timepiece in the CVDK Collection is made with great attention to detail, using only the finest and best materials, and produced in such small quantities each year that every single watch is a limited edition.
The V Couture team is honored to partner with Christiaan van der Klaauw to make these incredible astronomical works of art available in North America. Our expert customer care specialists will walk you through the process of selecting and customizing your perfect, one-of-a-kind timepiece with astronomical complications.
