Collaboration with Van Cleef & Arpels

The legendary Van Cleef & Arpels presented its most complicated watch ever at the SIHH in Geneva, the Midnight Planetarium Poetic Complication™. The complication - a Planetarium module created exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels - was developed by Christiaan van der Klaauw Astronomical watches. This complex masterpiece was developed in three years. It has a self-winding mechanical movement containing 396 separate parts.
