Where astronomy meets astrology!

The Aquarius Planetarium watch"Today is a bad day. Do not rush to jump to conclusions and act on first impulse, presumptuous. Many phrases can put full point in relationships with loved ones. Do an intensive physical work. Spend the evening with pleasant and like-minded people "- daily horoscope for each zodiac sign looks like. Variations of advices for representatives of different characters are simply inexhaustible. There are people who are very skeptical about astrology, but there are those who unconditionally believe in all that has been said, even if it is almost every day the same. I do not know whether a skilled watchmaker Christiaan van de Klauw believes the zodiac predictions, but the fact that he created real masterpieces of horology, skillfully used the sign of zodiac horoscope.
The master created twelve unique pieces of zodiacal watches The Aquarius Planetarium, on the dial of which the famous Christiaan’s child - a miniature planetarium, recognized the smallest planetarium in the world. The Planetarium is located at the position of "12 o’clock" and displays the location of the Mercury, the Venus, the Earth, the Mars, the Jupiter and the Saturn related to the Sun. In addition to the planetarium, remarkable feature of the watch is engraving, showing a definite sign of horoscope. The round case of zodiac - astronomical watch, made of platinum, is a real piece of watch making and fine art. On the dial with a beautiful engraving is also present signature of the famous Danish master engraver- Kees Engelbarts. This is the only master that uses the ancient Japanese technique “Mokume Gane”, which means "graining finish of wood." The main essence of this ancient technology is that the metal compounds is taken place in the environment of the total absence of oxygen under high pressure, high temperature due to the diffusion of atoms, and further by forging, milling pattern is applied to the metal. The final figure resembles wood pattern. The technology “Mokume Gane” is one of the most difficult, and it was not known in Europe until the 70th of the last century. To create the desired pattern can participate up to two dozen of the metal layers. This is a fairly time-consuming, tedious and long work. Each watch piece The Aquarius Planetarium – is real a work of art. It's more a collector's item, rather than just an accessory.
