Catching the Moon’s Face

We might not be able to see Chang Er playing tag with her rabbit on the moon, but we sure can track the phases of its visible parts with these watches below.

Omega Speedmaster Chronograph Moonphase

Contrary to popular belief, a lunar month is actually not exactly 30 days, but just slightly more than 29.5 days. A rather difficult time span to keep track of with standard gear, but Omega steps up to the task with its highly accurate mechanism that only needs adjusting after 10 years. Not only that, it is also packed full of other striking features including a stunning sun-brushed blue dial and a tachymeter scale.

Perfect for any minimalist, H. Moser & Cie’s moonphase watch is an artful representation of space itself. Featuring neither logo nor indices, and coated in darkest black – Vantablack – capable of absorbing 99.965% of light, the phases of the moon shines brightly amidst the seemingly abysmal space.
