Christiaan van der Klaauw CKRS3324 : Real Moon Tides Steel

Christiaan van der Klaauw CKRS3324 description

The Real Moon Tides was introduced at BaselWorld 2015. Reference CKRS3324 features a stainless steel case and a silver dial.

The CVDK Real Moon series, known for the Real Moon Joure and the Real Moon 1980, is extended with a new unique masterpiece, the CVDK Real Moon Tides. Next to a rotating miniature moon it carries a complication showing you the sea level tides in a way that has never been seen in a mechanical watch before.

Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of gravitational forces exerted by the Moon, Sun, and rotation of the Earth. There are multiple types of sea tides. In most locations you will find the ‘principal lunar semi-diurnal’ sea tide. Its period for one rise and fall of the sea level is about 12 hours, 25 minutes and 14 seconds. Waves move up and down in a special window to make this beautiful phenomenon visible.

At the 6 o’clock position our unique rotating 3-dimensional real moon - indicating the true moon phase - is shown. The moon rotates around the earth every 29,530588853 days. Our hand-made 3D miniature moon indicates the moon phase so accurately that it deviates only one day in 11.000 years. It is the most accurate 3D moon phase in the world ever incorporated in a mechanical watch.
