Moon phase wrist watches are among the most sought-after and prized timepieces in the world today. These special timepieces follow the progression of the moon in its different phases… from new moon, first quarter and full moon to last quarter.
A moon phase or lunar watch is a highly specialized complication featured on watch dials from some of the most prestigious watchmakers in the world, including Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Lucien Piccard, Omega, Chopard, IWC, Vacheron and Betrolucci.
A window on the watch dial of these intricate timepieces displays the different phases of the mooon. The cycle from new moon to new moon on the watch dial is designed to capture the actual 29.53 day real-life cycle.
Prestigious Swiss watch brands such as Jaeger LeCoultre and Patek Philippe are renowned and revered for their Moon Phase timepieces. The Patek Phillipe Perpetual Calendar Moon Phase and Annual Calendar Moon Phase timepieces along with the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Calendar watch are among the most popular moon phase wristwatches today, costing in upwards of $10,000 or more.
Legendary watchmaker Lucien Piccard also produces more moderately priced moon phase timepieces. And this week the brand’s Moubra Moon Phase men’s watch is showcased at popular online retailer WorldofWatches.com.
