Humans have been tracking the cycle of the sun for centuries. Watches started as sun dials, then evolved into wrist watches as we know them today. We have also been tracking the lunar cycle for the same amount of time which is why we now have watches that track both, an added complication called moonphase function. If you have an avid interest in the lunar cycle and are currently looking for a watch then we have a few recommendations for moonphase watches this winter.
This is one of the newer moonphase watches in our collections. It features a dress watch style with a dark grey dial and black leather strap, a watch well suited to formal occasions. The complications on this timepiece are not only moonphase but also date display which is found on the right side of the dial. At the 6 o’clock position is the moonphase function surrounded by glowing hands and markers for optimal timekeeping in the dark.
if you are looking for a fashion timepiece with a little something extra then this handsome watch by Thomas Sabo may take your fancy. This watch, even with the added moonphase function, has a simplistic design. The moonphase function as with the previous model is found at the 6 o’clock mark on the watch and is in black and silver. This watch is sleek in style and can be worn with various clothing combinations both formal and casual.
