If you’re a fan to moonphase watches, from the following watch brands you can find moon-phase watches:
On the watch’s face when you see a small opening on the dial, it is a typical feature of a moon-phase watch.
Basically, a moonphase watch is a watch that displays the different phases of the Moon (as it travels around the earth) through this small opening (or aperture) on its dial.
Moon-phase refers to the shape of the moon’s portion that is lighted by the sun as it is seen from the earth. Moon phase is also known as lunar phase.
You can easily see the current phase of the moon exactly as it should look in the sky at night time, through the moonphase watch’s aperture.
The moon-phase works like this:
We (humans) living on earth can only see the moon when the sun shines on the moon. The purpose of the aperture (or the opening on the dial) is to hide the portion of the moon that is supposed to be invisible.
The moonphase watch accuracy may be a downside of using this type of timepiece. Many moonphase watches will need to have their time re-calibrated in about three years.
This issue has to do with how the lunar calendar works. This is caused by the limitation of how moonphase watches are manufactured.
In a lunar month, it has 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. But most moonphase watches are given about 59 teeth on the gear.
Before you start setting a moonphase watch, you will need a lunar calendar. You can simply Google and find a lunar calendar that works for you.
Pull the watch crown to it final position. When the time of the watch stops running, you know the crown has reached its final position.
Refer to your lunar calendar. Now you can turn the crown until the watch reaches the correct moon position.
The hands of the watch will move while you’re setting the moonphase.
When the moon-phase is accurately set, set the hour and minute hands back to the correct time.
Set the date to the correct date.
Now push the crown all the way back to its original position.
