The moon phase
complication may not be the most practical complication of all. It may be
rendered obsolete by some. However, it is absolutely one of the most romantic
complications on watches. At Mid-Autumn Festival, we present you a few watches
with the moon phase complication that will impress.
Lange 1 Moon phase
The Grand Lange 1
Moon Phase is not just another Lange 1 in a bigger case. The moon phase is
displayed on the same dial that displays the hours and minutes. Not only does
this enable a clearer display of the moon phase, it also gives a stronger
visual impact to the wearer. At 41 mm, the watch feels big enough on the wrist.
The moon phase
display on the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase is accurate to 99.9978% and it is driven by two gears. The moon
phase disc has 382 stars on it. The rose gold edition is especially charming.
Of course you also get the familiar fine decorations on the hand-wound movement
which features a 3/4 German silver plate with screwed gold chatons and
hand-engraved balance cock.
& Son HM Perpetual Moon
This is probably the watch that is the most
dedicated to moon phase display. The 42mm watch has a moon phase display that
makes sure you enjoy look at. The moon itself has a diameter of 11mm.
This watch is offered in both rose gold and
stainless steel with different dial options including cream and blue and black guilloche dial. The display case back enables you to
admire an indicator of eight moon phase stages on the movement. The movement is
well-decorated with Geneve stripes. The best thing is these do not come at a
Emperador Moon Phase
This is a huge watch with a huge moon phase
display. The moon disc is designed to give you the texture of the moon surface.
At 46.5mm, this watch has a rose gold case and a blue dial. As a dressy watch,
this is meant to impress by its size.
Another version of this watch features an
enamel map of the world on the dial. It may not have the most accurate moon
phase display, but it surely shows some class.
As far as my personal favourite is the Blancpain moon phase, the Moon illustrates dirty eyes that seems look down all kind of people who does not like Blancpain, a beautiful example.
And My Roger Dubuis moon phase plate is entire piece of Lapis Lazuli , see how serious they treat this small piece of watch component!
That is what people say, the early watch model is usually heavily made regardless of cost.
That is one of the reason people collect Vintage Watches!

When Friend asks me why I always wear a Rolex Day Date, why not a Submariner, or a Patek Philippe?

Times has gone...

20s -G shock
40s- Daytona Steel
50s - Day Date
60s- Patek Philippe
70s- Big Pocket watch size Watch as it is hard to read those tiny words on the dial.
80s- no need any watch as eyes see everything blurred.
90-s it is count down time, so if you can have big watch which can run Anti-clockwise, that would be the best gift for him.
100s- probably he has gone to heaven.All his Rolexes, Patek, VC, AP, JLC would either go into the pawn shop or being ripped off by his third or fourth wives'
The Mid-Autumn Festival (Traditional Chinese: 中秋節), is a harvest festival celebrated by
ethnic Chinese. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the
lunar calendar with full moon at night, corresponding to late September to
early October of the Gregorian calendar with full moon at night.
2016 Mid-Autumn festival falls just into September 15. Let’s see
how Round and full the moon is.
After dinner, let’s go to see the “Fire Dragon” with over 10,000 burning
Take a section of double Yolk moon cake and a cup of Pu Er
tea, and walk with your beloved one back home/hotel for a sweet evening… So the
WATCH of Today MUST be something with a Round Bright Moon Phase.
