Christiaan Van Der Klaauw 18k RG “Eclipse,” Rare
Ultra rare and desirable.
Grand astronomical complication.
All sold out. Extremely rare. One of the most collectible independent high horology pieces ever.
Van der Klaauw is a creative genius who introduces fantastic astronomical elements and superb finishing to modern watchmaking. He is in the same creative league as Urwerk, Christophe Claret, and MB&F.
The Eclipse is one of the most complicated watches ever created by CVDK.
If you are looking at this, then you are true connoisseur. This piece is a true collector’s dream.
Features: An astronomical beauty, the watch features a lovely sliver guilloche dial and a glowing red gold case. This piece shows the wearer the date, month, moonphase (with a sun and moon indicator at 12 o’clock), and the solar or lunar eclipse (with a dial at 6 o’clock). Christiaan employed the venerable hand engraver Benzinger to hand-decorate the caliber and 18k solid gold rotor with guilloche and engraving.
In mint, like-new condition. Carefully owned by a collector and worn a handful of times to special events. Comes with a black crocodile (aftermarket) strap and CVDK rose gold buckle. Sorry, but the box and papers are misplaced.
Dial: Beautiful finished gold dial with two separate patterns of guilloche.
Dimension: measures 40 mm without crown. 42 mm with crown. 10 mm thick. Contemporary size dress watch.
Weighs a solid 126 grams.
Exactly as shown in photos. We only use photos of the actual watch.
This watch can sell for over $60,000 on the secondary market. This should be more valuable due to its especially limited nature and the Benzinger decoration.
