No celestial body has fascinated watchmakers and their ilk like the moon. Regan Luis follows the lunar phases with the most poetic of all fine watchmaking complications.
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.
