Always shoot for the moon...

If you miss you’ll land among the stars, said Oscar Wilde. The poetic moon-phase complication graces some of the most coveted dials, as in these three cases.


Vacheron Constantin
Powered by the new self-winding 2460 R31L calibre and bearing the Geneva Seal, the Patrimony Moon Phase and Retrograde Date plays the timeless classic card. Its sleek design spotlights the display of the moon’s cycle and age, requiring no correction for 122 years.


Casual chic
The Drive collection launched in 2016 is gaining complication models. Powered by the new 1904-LU MC manufacture movement and offered in pink gold or steel, the Drive Moon Phase shows the course of the moon at 6 o’clock.


A top trio.
For the 48mm pink-gold Planetarium Tri-Axial, the manufacture has teamed its high-speed Tri-Axial tourbillon with two astronomical complications, a rotating globe with day/night indication and a precision moon-phase display.
