VICENTERRA LUNA Part 1

Timepieces from VICENTERRA are intended to the lovers and collectors of products of exception; of high quality; manufactured in Switzerland. This young watch company has already created waves by launching its first complication watch – GMT 3(Vol 1& 2).

Now, the Swiss luxury watch maker VICENTERRA proposes its second project – a new complication in 3 dimensions, offering an original and poetic view of the Moon and earth; both arranged between the movement and its protective case.

VICENTERRA LUNA sets a 3-dimensional stage for the moon, revealing each quarter and phases in a spatial manner. The earth indicates the geographical zone of the Sun at its zenith, or simply where it’s noon on earth. The magic of these two stars is complete with the magnificent starlit night between the setting and the rising sun. The black dial shows applied hour markers escorted by a minute markers in stealth mode, in which fits the name of the new model “LUNA”. Inside the timepiece, a deep infinite black colour enhances the complications in a spray of shining stars.

The base movement is from the House Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier: calibre Seed VFM 3002. This calibre has a 42 hours reserve, two barrels in series and its landings contain 28 jewels. The exclusive additional module is developed by VICENTERRA.

This movement was chosen as its watch-making high quality, its finishes and prestigious decorations, Swiss Made. The white golden oscillating weight benefits from an exclusive drawing personalized by the House.

Proposed in four limited series: pink gold, yellow gold, white gold or steel: the VICENTERRA LUNA part 1 is available only on a pre-order basis with VICENTERRA S.A. For editions in gold, whether pink, gold or white, the pushbuttons/correctors, 3h crown and the applied hours etc will be of the same material as the case.

This timepiece gives you the following information:

  • Hours, minutes, seconds in the center of the dial.
  • The larger date is set between the times of 1H and 2H.
  • The Earth indicates the geographical zone in which the sun is at its zenith.
  • It revolves once in 24 hours.
  • The phases of the moon are visible in 3-dimensions as in a clear night.
  • The Moon revolves in 29.54 days (the average moon cycle).
