From A. Lange & Söhne Via Iwc And Rolex To Vacheron Constantin – These Moon Phase Displays Are Spectacular
The moon phase display contributed in its classical form as a styling element to the renaissance of the mechanical clock in the 1980s. Now more and more unusual indications of the moon phase are on the dial, as the following watches prove. We show you 14 particularly exciting moonphase clocks in alphabetical order, in which the manufacturers implement the display in various ways.
Moon Phase Clock # 1: A. Lange & Söhne Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar Terraluna
If you turn the Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar Terraluna with their overlapping time displays, you can see a large astronomical display. The balance symbolizes the sun. The earth rotates in 24 hours. The moon orbits the earth in 29.5 days and displays the moon phase at the same time. The plant consists of 787 parts and builds an extremely long gait of 14 days. For 218,700 Euros you get the watch from A. Lange & Söhne in the 45.5 millimeter-red gold case.
Moon Phase Clock # 2: Andreas Strehler Lune Exacte
The model Lune Exacte provides the independent watchmaker Andreas Strehler with the most precise moon phase in the world. As a rule, moon phase displays deviate over the years from the real moon age. This is due to the fact that in the classic moon phase display the moon cycle is rounded down to 29.5 days. Thus, the moon phase display occasionally requires a correction, which is usually carried out by a pushbutton in the housing. The moon phase display by Andreas Strehler, however, needs to be corrected after two million years.This undefeated precision is complemented by a further special feature: the lunar phase of the Lune Exacte can be precisely read off and set for three hours – thanks to the lunar age display with Mondnonius at six o’clock. According to shoppingpicks, the display consists of two rings: The outer shows the age of the moon in days. The red markers point to new or full moon. The inner ring corresponds to the outer ring and makes it possible to read the lantern to three hours. The world recall costs in red gold about 112,000 euros, the price of the platinum version is 125,000 euros.
Moonphase Clock # 3: Blancpain Villeret Carousel Moonphase
The Villeret carousel moon phase combines a classic moon phase with the complication carousel. Typical for the brand Blancpain, which during the renaissance of the mechanical clock also made the moon phase again popular: the face on the moon. The carousel, like the tourbillon, compensates for the effects of gravity on the behavior of the walk. While the tourbillon is connected to the spring house by a wheel train, there are two links in the carrousel: one wheel is the energy for the passage, the second one controls the rotational speed of the bogie. The automatic manufac- turer caliber 225L taps in a red gold case with a diameter of 42 millimeters. The carousel costs 119,800 euros.
Moonphase Clock # 4: Christiaan Van Der Klaauw Realmoon Joure Horizon
Three-dimensional, the Dutch brand Christiaan van der Klaauw makes the moon appear in the dial of the Realmoon Joure Horizon: A ball rotates around its own axis at the six.Only in 11,000 years the display should deviate by one day from the reality. An automatic movement by Technotime with moon phase module by Christiaan van der Klaauw is responsible for this, the combination is called CVDK7382 . A hand painted with oil paint completes the play. Ten copies of the 40 millimeter stainless steel watch will be available at a price of 32,750 euros each.
Moon Phase # 5: Corum Admiral’s Cup Ac-One 45 Tides
What is a moon phase actually good for? Corum gives an astonishing answer for sailors with the Admiral’s Cup AC-One 45 Tides: Since the strength of the tidal range depends on the lunar phase, there is a combined display at the Twelve for both. For full or new moon, the tidal range is the strongest with a coefficient of 95 to 120; in the first and last quarter of the lunar cycle, the value decreases to 20 to 45. At six o’clock, the ebb and fl ow sides of the next 24 hours are displayed with two arrows, and the flow strength can be read in the left half of the dial. An automatic Eta 2892 with an exclusive Dubois-Dépraz module is inside the 45-millimeter housing. The price for the men’s watch made of titanium: 9,400 euros.
Moonphase Clock # 6: De Bethune Dreamwatch 5
Like a space ship, Dreamwatch 5 is the space-based creation of the Geneva-based high-tech manufacturer De Bethune. The streamlined titanium case, which sits transversely on the bracelet, has a sapphire glass window behind which the hours and minutes are displayed digitally on panes. To the left of this is the trademark-like spherical moon phase display, which is much closer to reality than the otherwise usual covering discs. The moon phase only deviates from reality by a full day after 1.112 years. Under the hood ticks theDB2144 hand-winding caliper with silicon anchoring wheel. It runs after full-length train five days. You can dream with Dreamwatch 5 from 180,000 Swiss francs without taxes.
Moonphase Clock # 7: Iwc Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph
In 2017, IWC will return the Da Vinci to the round shape and lunar phase display, which they already showed in the 1980s. Just like at that time, there is now a Da Vinci perpetual calendar chronograph. It works with the automatic movement 89360 and a new module for the perpetual calendar. The latter makes it possible to read the moon phase from the same auxiliary dialing code as the stopped time. In red gold the 43 millimeters Da Vinci cost 43,000 euros, in stainless steel 32,000 euros.
Moon Phase Clock # 8: Jaquet Droz Perpetual Calendar ÉClipse
Interestingly, Jaquet Droz has the moon phase display at the Perpetual Calendar Éclipse: Not only the weekday and date display is retrograd, also over the moon at the six moves an aperture, which springs back at full moon. The automatic caliber 5853LR.4 is based on a Blancpain factory. For 55,300 euros one can observe the unusual spectacle in the 43-millimeter-red gold case.
Moon Phase Clock # 9: Konstantin Chaykin Joker
At first sight the moon phase of the Constantine Chaykin jokers is not noticed, too much is the face of this clock busy. At a second glance it becomes clear: What looks like a tongue in the laughing mouth is the disc with the red moon symbol in the classic half-moon-shaped dial. Hour and minute, the joker shows with his rolling eyes, that is, the rotating discs each with a black dot for the marking. Behind it is the automatic movement Eta 2824 , but it was extended by a module by Konstantin Chaykin. 7,000 euros costs the fun.
Moon Phase Clock # 10: Maîtres Du Temps Chapter One Tonneau Transparence Titanium
The special feature of the model Chapter One Tonneau Transparence Titanium byMaîtres du Temps is, apart from the number of complications, the display of the moon phase and the weekday over cylinders at the upper and lower edge of the case. The cylinders are made of anodized anticorodal, a special aluminum alloy with magnesium and silicon, and therefore offer high stability and low weight. The moon cylinder is painted by hand. In this version of the Chapter One, a sapphire crystal dial also opens up an insight into the exclusive mechanics. At twelve o’clock, the chronograph’s minute circle is set, its seconds are stopped centrally by means of the red pointer. To the right of this is the retrograde date display, and opposite it is an equally retrograde GMT scale. A Minotourbillon completes the picture. Inside the men’s watch with titanium case, the hand-held caliber SHC02.1, developed by Christophe Claret and Peter Speake-Marin. Only eleven copies are built at a price of 585,000 Swiss francs each.
Moon Phase Clock # 11: Ochs And Junior Nebra
The nebra, the moon phase clock of Ochs and Junior, is neatly linked to the Nebra, a4,000-year-old sky disk. And almost as long as the moon phase of the Nebra, designed by Ludwig Oechslin, runs exactly: 3 478.27 years. The module for the automatic Eta 2824 consists of only five parts. In addition, the clock displays the position of Sun (at the Twelve), Earth (Pointer Center) and Moon correctly. The 31 holes serve as a date display. The Nebra can only be bought in Lucerne. With silver case the watch with an unusual moon phase display costs 13,800 Swiss Francs, with Titangehäuse 11,800 Swiss Francs.
Moonphase Clock # 12: Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer
She has already conquered the moon, now she also carries it on the dial: Omega presents the Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer in Nachthimmelblau.The moon phase is distinguished by the blue dial. Omega uses a high-resolution image in black and white that reflects the crater and elevations of the earth satellite in a particularly detailed way. The underlying mechanism of the automatic calibrator 9904 requires a correction in ten years. He works in a 44.25 millimeter stainless steel case. The Speedmaster costs 9,300 Euros.
Moonphase Clock # 13: Rolex Cellini Moonphase
A blue enamelled disk and meteorite rock represent the moon phase display of the Rolex Cellini moon phase. The position of the moon is read from the position of the moon symbol relative to the fixed arrow above the display: at full moon, the symbol is directly under the arrow, the dark moon disk. With this Cellini Rolex 2017 also launched a new caliber, theautomatic movement 3195. The price of the 39 millimeter clock of Everose gold: 24,300 euros.
Moon Phase Clock # 14: Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600
The grand finale of this compilation is an extremely complicated piece from Vacheron Constantin: the Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600offers a total of 23 displays on two dials, most of which are astronomical in nature. They include a precision moon phase including the moon age, a tide display and a three-dimensional representation of the moon, the earth and the sun. No less than six spring houses store the energy required by the 3600 handrail for a three-week power reserve.Five years of development and two years of work on the design are contained in the single piece of white gold. Vacheron Constantin has not published any information on the price. According to rumors, he will be one million Swiss francs.
