The model Venus a tribute to the most beautiful planet!

CK Venus CKVN1166 watchImagine for a moment thatCK Venus CKVN1166 watch caseback you are standing on the Sun. It is little too hot there, but the view from there, I think, is worth it. When viewed from the Sun, Venus is the second planet in our solar system. The planet was named after the Roman goddess of love. When viewed from the Earth, the Venus is the brightest and most visible celestial body the Sun and the Moon, which size, gravity and composition are comparable to our planet. If you look at Venus from the north, you can see that it does not rotate as the rest of the planets - in a clockwise direction around its axis. The Venus as the Sun rises in the west.
The Venus is the second planet of the inner solar system, as its orbit lies between the orbit of the Earth and the Sun. The orbit of Venus as Earth's orbit is nearly circular. Venus makes a complete revolution around the Sun every 224.7 Earth days. Distance from Venus to Earth varies from 40 to 259 million km. Because Venus is an inner planet, it is always visible next to the Sun, and more precisely, it never moves away from the Sun more than 47,8 ° (for the terrestrial observer). The Venus shines most brightly in the sky before sunrise and after sunset. We see in the morning and evening in the firmament.
The planet Venus inspired Christiaan van de Klaauw to create an exclusive models Venus, as beautiful as the planet. The design of this watch is simply unsurpassed: this model cannot be confused with anything, as all watches of the skilled watchmaker Christian van de Klaauw. This unique classic watch literally radiates calm. In addition to time, the Venus watch shows the current date and the sign of the Zodiac, in which the Sun is currently located.
The position of the Venus, as the Earth and the Moon is also displayed on an unusual dial. The hand indicating the date, Venus and Earth rotates counterclockwise. The date is indicated by little red hand on outer scale of the dial. The Sun is located in the center of the dial. Red small hand and the Earth are connected to each other so that they are always diametrically opposed. On the outer scale are located scale divisions, indicating the twelve signs of the zodiac. In addition to the date, the red hand also indicates the sign of the Zodiac, in which the Sun is located. The orbit of Venus lies between the orbit of the Earth and of the Sun. The position of Venus from the Sun can be determined directly. To determine the position of Venus relative to the Earth, you need to draw an imaginary line between the Earth and Venus. VenusParallel to this line it must be drawn a line from the Sun. And now on the outside of the zodiacal scale you can see, in which the sign of Venus is located and its position relative to the Earth.
If Venus is located at the right of center (if it’s viewed from the Earth), so it is the "Morning Star", and if Venus is on the left - it's the "Evening Star." In its turn, the Moon, in addition to the rotation around the Sun revolves around the Earth. Relative to the Sun the Moon makes a complete revolution in its orbit at 29.53 days. If the Moon is between the Sun and Earth, it is the new Moon, and if between the Sun and the Moon is located the Earth - so it is the full Moon.
The model Venus is truly unique and complex creation, undoubtedly, deserves attention and respect. The flawless round watch case is made of 18 - carat pink gold. The dial of this watch is striking: It shows the starry sky, which is located in the center of the Sun, and the Venus and the Earth with the Moon. It is a fascinating spectacle.
The dial is covered with durable sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective coating. The watch hands are made of stainless steel with gold plating. The transparent case back is also covered with sapphire crystal, through which can be seen the work of the internal mechanism. The clock is provided a modified self-winding CK 1096 with built-in module of Venus. Functions: hour, minute, month and zodiac indication, the orbit of the Earth around the Sun and Venus, and the Moon around the Earth. The blue strap, which perfectly complements the "heavenly" dial, is made of alligator skin. The strap has a secure clasp in rose gold, which is engraved with brand’s logo. Water resistance of watch Venus is up to 50 meters.
