Independent clockmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw’s exceptional professional skills in the field of making extraordinary watches are on display again with his newest creation, an Astrolabe watch. “Planetarium 2000″, “Astrolabe’ and the more recently launched, ‘Venus’, are capable of measuring everything from the position of the planets, the constellations, worldwide sunrises and sunsets, solar and lunar eclipses. “Planetarium’ features a heliocentric revolution of the planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) and is available from Watch Buys for $23,700. The “Astrolibium” is noticeably complex and measures celestial bodies and constellations. The “Mondial CK1″, a variation of the Astrolibium, is customized according to your location on the globe, featuring a sunrise/sunset gauge for the rest of the planet. Self-lauded as the smallest planetarium in the world the watch is priced at a rather expensive $16,200 from Watch Buys. In addition to the “Astrolabe’ and the “Planetarium 2000″, the more recently created astronomical wristwatch by Christiaan van der Klaauw, the “Venus’, was introduced at the 2006 Basel World. It features a very animated dial with separately rotating Earth, Moon and Venus orbiting the Sun amidst the Constellations. It sells from Watch Buys for $19,800.
