True Moon

Ref. 1TMAP.U05A.C42B

The True Moon timepiece features the world’s first mechanism capable of providing a realistic view of the phases of the moon as we see them in the northern hemisphere with a deviation of just one day in 125 years. This unprecedented feat was achieved by using the synodic month of 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes – the time between successive recurrences of the same phase – as a basis for calculation. 

The moon phase display at 6 o’clock is set by a pusher integrated in the case at 10 and has 18 revolving discs, each bearing a true representation of the current phase of the moon. The 19 diamond stars on the dial depict the Big Dipper, Small Dipper and Cassiopeia. The watch has an engraved relief of the earth on a faceplate at 12 o’clock and a date display at 3 o’clock.
