As the carrier of time, the regular movement of the moon phase is naturally included in the clock. As early as the 17th century, clocks had moon phase functions. The large table clock with moon phase display is the original carrier of the combination of clocks and moons. Since then, with the evolution of clock manufacturing technology and form, this function has been logically added to pocket watches and watches.
Patek Philippe’s new Ref. 5216 watch has a legendary super complex watch with minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar, automatic return date and moon phase display. It not only pushes the minute repeater function to a new level, the tourbillon device It also means that the time is running accurately, and the moon phase display function that displays the changes in the moon’s profit and loss is also worth mentioning. The fascination of this feature lies not only in triggering poetic associations, but also in its extraordinary precision design. That is to say, the lunar phase display will differ from the actual lunar cycle by one day after every 122 years and 45 days, which is equivalent to a complete lunar cycle after every 3420 years.
As a brand with a long history and tradition in the field of fine watchmaking, Breguet launched the Classique gold moon phase watch in 2009, which shows the oldest design pattern in moon phase clocks. The semi-circular moon phase display and the carved smiley pattern on the surface of the moon are now rarely used by ordinary moon phase watches. This highly sensual design orientation is to fully expose the smiley face at the full moon for the wearer. Convey a simple and pleasant look. And in the Breguet Classique gold moon phase watch above the 1 point of the moon phase cycle display area, the clearly visible 29 and 1/2 digital identification is coming from the average period of the moon’s profit and loss mentioned above. In addition, the corrugated carving of the clouds in the moon phase disk, and the star cluster that interprets the moon and stars to express the beautiful artistic conception, all show Breguet’s attention to detail design taste, and also add mystery to this subtle moon phase change With hazy beauty.
