  • Catalogue Essay

    With a focus on astronomical timepieces, Dutchman Christiaan van der Klaauw introduced his first astronomical clock in 1974. Regarded as the only watchmaker in the industry to be completely devoted to hand-made astronomical timepieces, the brand was recognized as one of the 65 brands to be able to claim the prestigious title by Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) “Haute Horlogerie”.

    With a small number of Christiaan van der Klaauw timepieces produced every year, every piece can be deemed as somewhat limited or even unique to some extent. Hand-made and finished, Christiaan van der Klaauw timepieces utilizes modified ETA calibers. The Astrolabium 2000 was initially introduced in the start of the new millennium along with its signature model Planetarium.

    The present Astrolabium 2000 in pink gold is offered in attractive overall condition and is accompanied by the full set of accessories including the original warranty and the presentation box. A perfect opportunity for lovers of astrology to acquire a beautiful piece of mechanical art.
