Christiaan van der Klaauw
Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches, the Dutch company based in Heerenveen, craft high-end timepieces par excellence. The prestigious watch brand specialises in making timepieces with at least one astronomical complication.
Each watch is designed and manufactured in the brand’s own, impressive atelier, employing only the finest finishing techniques. Indeed, Christiaan van der Klauww Astronomical Watches sidestep mass manufacturing, creating only a limited number of timepieces per year owing to the no-compromise production methods used.
Founded in 1974, Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical Watches employ hand craftsmanship to spellbinding effect and are the only watch company to produce solely astronomical timepieces. Initially, the company specialised in clock production, but in 1996 the Dutch brand unveiled its first wristwatch.
Today, the company from Heerenveen offers a collection of off-the peg wristwatches as well as custom-made timepieces.
