There is something beautiful about the synergy of tracking both the lunar cycle as well as the cycle of the sun on one device. As we head into winter we start seeing less of the sun and more of the moon as the days become shorter and the nights become longer. We have been tracking the cycle of the moon for centuries but many people ask, what is the purpose of having a moonphase watch?
Outside of tracking the moon itself, what reason would you need this complication? Unless you are a werewolf or a witch it does seem like a pointless addition on a watch, however, it seems to be more the aesthetic of having this complication on more luxury timepieces. The moonphase complication isn’t present on all watches so it does make the ones that do have it stand out.
On that basis, if you know someone who likes a taste of luxury and perhaps an accessory that is a bit different from the usual Christmas gift perhaps a moonphase watch is the right fit? (Unless of course, you can confirm that they are a witch or werewolf and tracking the lunar cycle is imperative to their day to day life!) Here are our recommendations for moonphase watches this Christmas.
