Fly Me to the Moon

BREGUET The Reine De Naples Jour/Nuit 8999 high jew­ellery watch fea­tures a ti­ta­nium moon placed on a disc of lapis lazuli that floats among mother-of-pearl clouds and gold stars. The 18-karat white gold case and dial are finely dec­o­rated in a frost­ing of baguette and bril­liant di­a­monds weigh­ing

over 7 carats.


Bathed in tri­an­gu­lar-cut and hexagon-cut di­a­monds, the MasterGraff Gy­roGraff 48mm

fea­tures a stun­ning three-di­men­sional, gy­ro­graph moon phase in­di­ca­tor that charts

the daily pro­gres­sion of the lu­nar phases. Pro­vid­ing bal­ance and sym­me­try, the dou­bleaxis tour­bil­lon move­ment sits at 5 o’clock, while a 60-hour power re­serve in­di­ca­tor is

po­si­tioned at 11 o’clock.
