An inspiration to poets, the perfect atmosphere for lovers and romance, moonlight has captured the imagination of humankind since the dawn of time.
Antoine Preziuso, captivated by the unique charm of eastern nights, now expresses this lunar splendour in a model which he has naturally christened “Moon Light”.
Generously rounded leaf-shaped hands glide over the dial like a caress, inviting one to journey through the galaxy, the full, elegantly curving 12, 9 and 3 numerals stand out like proud sentinels and are coated with luminova to light up the night. Distinctive aerodynamic hour-markers at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock, complemented by dots at 1, 3, 5 and 7 o’clock. Nestling in the 6 o’clock position, the moon-phase display majestically shifts in time with the movements of its ethereal counterpart.
And for those who have always longed to view the other side of the moon, the self-winding movement, naturally also engraved to create a lunar structure entirely in keeping with the mood of this exceptional creation, can be admired through the sapphire case-back.
While American author Wallace Steven wrote that “The book of moonlight is not written yet”, this is definitely one of its finest chapters in preparation
