Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio
BaselWorld this year, presented some great independent companies that had some rather amazing unique pieces. One of the companies we had the pleasure of sitting down with the owners of Dutch Astronomical watchmaking specialists Christiaan Van Der Klaauw, Daniel & Maria Reintjes who immediately pointed us in the direction of the Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio, which we will go into detail in a few moments.
Christiaan van Der Klaauw (CVDK) is a Dutch owned company that holds the speciality of astronomical intelligence, having your wristwatch operating in precisely the same way as different features that run in the galaxy such as the moon and the suns revolutions. The Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign was presented to us as the most unique 1 of 1 piece that was currently present at BaselWorld this year.
This amazing work of art had several points that would make your eye water due to every attention-to-detail from the case-back to the dial of the watch. As the name of the watch suggests, this watch was made specifically for an individual whose zodiac sign is a Scorpio. The interesting thing about this particular one-off piece is that on the complication of this watch, you will notice there are two sets of initials and two sets of day and month of birth carved out. As described by Daniel & Maria, one of the initials is for the owner of the watch while the other is the initials of his son, both of which are born in November. This already makes this piece a generational time piece.
This was by far one of the most sentimental features I have come across, and to have these particular features explained by the designers themselves aside from the obvious, was true admiration. The Real Moon Joure Zodiac Sign Scorpio is an exceptional piece.
