Caught my eye…

Monochrome.nl recently profiled a new watch from Netherlands-based master watchmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw, the “Real Moon Joure.”  van der Klaauw is known for his making “astronomical watches”, i.e. those featuring astronomical complications.  The piece shown here is the Real Moon Joure, featuring a three-dimensional moon that only need adjusting once every 1,971,000 days making it the most precise moon phase complication in a wristwatch, according to Monochrome.  I wish I had some better pictures of the “3D moonphase” (it is very 2D in these photos), but Christiaan van der Klaauw makes some amazing watches, no doubt.  If you want to learn more, see also Monochrome’s brief profile of van der Klaauw a couple years ago and also the Christiaan van der Klaauw website.
