Numerous fashion aficionados today may differ to agree that it’s the “It’s The Shoes That Make The Man,” while others would concur “That It Is The Watch That Makes The Man.” The latter holds some credo with the Suitable Attire For The Perfect Gentleman event taking place this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

To The Moon And Back…

The moon has certainly stirred the imagination of many popular watchmakers. In the early 1960’s,  Bulova, Longines, Wittnauer and Omega were in competition to produce the very first watch to be worn on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969.

Although American watchmakers Bulova and Wittnauer had the domestic edge, Swiss watchmaker Omega won out with the Speedmaster mechanical timepiece which featured a Plexiglas crystal and dust-proof elements, two essential characteristics necessary for the moon landing.

More notably, lunar timepieces have held a far longer heritage in the world of horology. For generations preeminent watchmakers Patek Philippe, Oris, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Franck Muller, Lucien Piccard, Omega, Chopard, IWC, Vacheron and Zenith have been producing Moon Phase timepieces.

Moon phase timepieces follow the progression of the moon in its different phases, from the new moon and first quarter to the full moon and last quarter. The different phases of the moon are presented on a window of the watch dial. A rotating disc on the dial displays the portion of the moon as it could be seen from the earth. The cycle is designed to feature the actual 29.54 life cycles of new moon to new moon.

Popular Moon Phase watches are highlighted this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com with the March Moon Phase Time Event. Over forty Moon Phase timepieces are featured in the promotion, including highly sought-after styles from Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Egard, Frederique Constant, MOMO Design, Croton, Lucien Piccard, Akribos XXIV, Ingersoll and Invicta.
