Christiaan van der Klaauw's emblematic Planetarium gets dressed in red aventurine for the Dunes of Mars limited edition.
Humanity has always been fascinated by the great mysteries of our Universe. Since the dawn of time, the movements of the celestial bodies have enchanted and amazed cultures all over the globe. Astonishingly, Christiaan van der Klaauw managed to scale down and translate these heavenly movements to a set of gears small enough to fit inside a wristwatch. He debuted the Planetarium, a watch equipped with the smallest mechanical planetarium in the world, in 1999. This mechanical masterpiece has since grown out to become an icon for Christiaan van der Klaauw, and a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of independent watchmakers. Now, this icon gets dressed in red with the introduction of the Dunes of Mars limited edition.
The Christiaan van der Klaauw Planetarium Dunes of Mars has the magical planetarium at 6:00, surrounded by a dial crafted from sparkling red aventurine glass. The deep red color is inspired by the rusty red iron oxide surface of Mars. Also known as the Red Planet, one orbit around the sun takes 686.98 days. With the Planetarium you'll be able to witness it in real time. Reference CKPM3305 is cased in steel. It is limited to just six pieces in total.
