    Baselworld 2015: Christiaan van der Klaauw Live Report

    Hypernova

    CVDK Hypernova combines a full chronograph with a day/night indication, an ingenious date display and a beautiful moon phase indication. The moon phase can be read at the 6 o’clock position. When the Moon is left of centre, it is in its first quarter. When the Moon is in the centre, it is full Moon and right of centre, it is in its last quarter. If the Moon is not visible, you see a beautiful starry sky in the window, it is new Moon. The CVDK Hypernova is the first watch featuring our new extra-large case, measuring 44 mm in diameter.

    Real Moon Tides

    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.

    Planetarium


    It displays real time the solar orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. It also shows you the minutes, hours, date and month. The result is a magnificent spectacle that continues to fascinate in all its complex mechanical beauty. A fitting tribute to the grand masters of planetarium design such as Nicolaas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Christiaan Huygens and Eise Eisinga.

    I managed to try the Hypernova on at Salon QP in mid November.

    Fantastic piece, it manages to incorporate all of the CVDK values, into their sportiest model yet.
    My only wish is that they produce a watch in the £2000 - £3500 region , however, their product is value for the money, unique and incredibly stylish, just wish I could afford one J
