Christiaan van der Klaauw

Christiaan van der Klaauw is recognized worldwide as the premier maker of fine astronomical timepieces. Founded in 1974 by master watchmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw in the Netherlands, the brand continues pushing creative boundaries in the depiction of celestial movements through horology.

With an unparalleled dedication to astronomical complications, each CVDK watch tells the story of our place in the universe. Drawing from Van der Klaauw's background in historical astronomy and instrumentation, every timepiece seamlessly blends technical mastery with artistic vision.

Led today by Creative Director Daniël Reintjes and CEO Pim Koeslag, the Maison carries on its founder's legacy of unmatched precision and passion for depicting celestial majesty through watchmaking. Operating from their atelier in Naarden, a tight-knit team brings each limited series to life entirely by hand.

Official recognition from the FHH highlights CVDK's standing in Haute Horlogerie. Accolades including multiple GPHG awards cement its status among the world's most innovative horology houses. While rooted deeply in tradition, CVDK continues breaking new ground in mechanical astronomy for the luxury wrist.
