The Moonphase watch serves as a poetic rendering of an age-old fascination with our celestial satellite, driven by nostalgic values in a fast-paced digital age.
The Moonphase complication displays the lunar phase in an aperture on the dial using sophisticated engineering, indicating whether it’s a new, full, half or quarter moon. The moonphase will move a circle per month. The lunar cycle usually lasts about 29.53 days – or exactly 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 3 seconds.
This svelte and whimsical design showcases a growing appetite for classic aesthetic with a touch of mystical romance. The most common feature is known as a bosom-shaped moonphase, with its graphical approach of depicting the waxing and waning of the moon inside a crescent aperture.
The other type is known as a radial moonphase which uses an indicator hand to track the full lunar cycle.
The former is well-represented by our Meridian Collection. This moonphase watch is a dreamy marriage between iconoclastic creations and traditional craftsmanship with premium movement powered by Miyota, Japan.
