When Galileo Galilei turned his telescope towards the Moon in 1609, he relied on his knowledge of light and shadow learned as a painter to understand the movements of the heavenly orb. We relied on that same pairing of art and science to create one of our most sophisticated and beautiful timepieces yet… for an unbelievable price!
Our Moon Phase Watch continues a centuries-old tradition of unlocking the secrets of the Moon with scientific innovation. Adding this beautiful complex function to the face is no easy feat...
Solving the mystery of Moon time. Since earthly time is measured at regular 12 month intervals, the Moon’s month is at odds with our calendar. A lunar month is 29.53 days, so a Moon-phase watch needs to keep time in two totally different ways. That’s why antique watch collectors are always quick to bid on this type of complex lunar movement. You'll find them among the rarest and most expensive vintage watches ever sold at auction. Not long ago, one of the most important moon-phase timepieces fetched an incredible $5.7 million! Today, there are Moon Phase watches costing over $31,000! Ridiculous.
How we captured the Moon. We created a timepiece more accurate and affordable than its ancestors. The experts tend to agree: “As a professional restorer of antique and classic watches for major museums, I recently reviewed the movement and individual parts of the Stauer Moon Phase timepiece. The assembly and the precision of the moon phase movement are rarely seen.” — George Thomas, Towson Watch Company.
The Moon Phase Watch boasts three different complications set in the guillochéed face. A rose gold-finished case and a crocodile-embossed, genuine brown leather strap further enhances the vintage-style appeal of this handsome classic.
Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. If you are not completely thrilled, simply return the Moon Phase Watch within 60 days for a full refund of the sale price. Time is of the essences! This offer is limited to the first 1800 orders only, so please don’t wait. This kind of watch (and deal) only comes around once in a blue moon!
