4 decades ago, in 1974, a Dutch clockmaker named Chrsitiaan Van Der Klaauw presented an incredibly decorated astronomical clock with moon phase This ornate clock marked the start of a cartier pasha replica multi-decade exploration of the niche world of astronomical complications. Van der Klaauw was born in Leiden, a city in the Netherlands. After studying at the School for Intstrument Makers (LiS) in Leiden, he continued training at the Leidse Sterrewacht, the oldest university-affiliated observatory based in the Netherlands.

Called “Satellite du Monde,” the watch featured a moon phase, day and night indicator and, interestingly, a unique display that informs the wearer of the city on earth where it is exactly noon at any given time of day.
