Moon phase watches – A symbol of the mechanical watch
Every second of time holds an incredible power. What happens throughout the entire world in just one second is almost incomprehensible. Watching the second hand continuously move around the dial can leave one awestruck. Now imagine what happens within the course of an entire lunar cycle: in 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds. And it is not only about time and what happens in it, but also about the power of the moon, which has scientifically been shown, and individually felt, to affect life on earth.
All of this is found in moon phase watches – those made by Maurice de Mauriac.
Since 1980, the moon phase watch has stood within the market as a bulwark against the worldwide quartz trend. And since that time, moon phase watches have become not only the symbol for mechanical watches but also a symbol of their resurrection. It was the opportunity to wear the magic of the moon on your arm and the friendly smile that many moon phase watches displayed on the dials that marked the triumphal march of moon phase watches and mechanical watches in general.
Whenever a customer comes to the atelier and asks about a moon phase, one immediately senses, in addition to the magic of the mechanical movement, the magic of the moon present in the atelier and how it amplifies the sense of awe felt with a mechanical watch on the table, in their hand, or on their arm. Our moon phase watches impart their wearers and their lives a very special magic.
