What Is A Moonphase Watch
So are you wondering what on the earth is Moonphase Watch?
Well. By definition, the watch with moonphase complication that tracks the sequential changes of the lighted portion of the moon (it’s called lunar cycle) over almost a month is called the Moonphase watch.
When the moon travels around the earth, some of the areas of the moon reflects light towards the earth.
And we see the only lighted portion of the moon.
As the moon continues to travel at its angular rotation and angular position, the lighted portion seen from the earth changes over time, taking crescent shape to gibbous shape, full moon to new moon.
A lunar cycle takes almost 29.5 days to complete and the cycle consists of one night of the full moon and one night of the new moon.
Moonphase watches are basically two types- the most known is “Bosom” moonphase watch as it presents a graphical illustration of the moonphases in watch.
The other type is known as the “radial” moonphase watch as it uses indicator hands to track the lunar cycle.
Okay, don’t get bored. You need the wisdom if you want to make full use of your moonphase watch.
How Does A Moonphase Watch Work
The moonphase aperture has a disk underneath with two graphical moons illustrated on it.
And there’s a 59-teeth wheel that drives the movement of this disc.
The more the number of the disc, the better the accuracy.
A lunar cycle takes almost 29.5 days to be completed and the gears advance the disc once per day so that a full moon or a new moon can appear exactly after (29.5 x 2) or 59 days.
