A classic design ensuring professional quality, but the moon-phase complication is not always for the professionals. It’s a pretty complication that’s good to look at. They comprise a fair share of the luxury platforms and might even help you record others behavioral data.
The sun/moon phase comes within the most popular complications and is highly sought after. It usually consists of a rotating disc with the moon painted over that represents the cycle from one new moon to another. It mimics the illuminated portion of the moon as we see from the Earth. With Orient building its own mechanical movements for about five decades now, it is surprising they didn’t bring up the moon-phase watches earlier.
These are among the most popular (and praiseworthy) of Orient’s collections available today. They are much less expensive than Swiss moon-phase complications but at par with technological features and more durable. The Orient moon-phase watches fit all budgets, are easy to read, sports attractive dials and look equally classy either in gold or in steel.
Released in the summer of 2012, it is a part of the Classic-Automatic series that gained a strong presence within no time, fusing sophistication with tested, traditional technologies to wave off any challenge from the changing trends. The three-layer dial and the complex 3D structure make it evident.
