CVDK masterpiece project: Real Moon Stella Nebula

Ammolite originates from prehistoric marine fossils that date back 71-million years

A unique custom made serie has been made with the rare gem Ammolite. It is the masterpiece Real Moon Stella Nebula, made in collaboration with Stella Polare in Tokyo, Japan. Stella Polare is dedicated to sourcing the finest and most exclusive pieces from leading independent watch and clock makers in the world who can only be described as Horological Artists.

Ammolite originates from prehistoric marine fossils that date back 71-million years. Tectonic pressure, heat and mineralization formed the gemstone. The luminous color in each gem is unique and therefore no two Ammolite pieces are the same. Multiple layers of the natural gemstone material create a beautiful array of color. These rare ammolite gemstones are discovered and hand cut to maximize the inherently bright colors by Korite, leader in the ammolite industry since 1979. The CVDK Real Moon Stella Nebula carries our iconic rotating 3-dimensional real moon indicating the true moon phase. It is custom made out of white and black diamonds. The moon rotates around the earth every 29,5305889 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 indicator ever incorporated in a mechanical watch movement.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
