On the occasion of BASELWORLD 2015, VICENTERRA reintroduced its Sale by Subscription concept for two new timepieces. The LUNA Volume 2 and Volume 3 are garnished by the earth, the sun and the moon, 3 separate yet intertwined planes.
In this new LUNA collection, the phases of the Night Star are revealed through an encased globe, quarter by quarter. The earth indicates the geographical zone of the Sun at its zenith, or simply put, where it’s noon on earth at any given time.
The magic of these two stars is complete with the rising and setting of the sun, which gives way to a magnificent starlit night. The LUNA models are powered by an automatic Seed VMF 3002 Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier movement, to which an exclusive VICENTERRA module is added.
The LUNA Volume 2 model is limited to 99 pieces. The LUNA Volume 3 comes in 3 different dial colors, black, white, and blue. The LUNA Volume 3 models are also limited to 99 pieces each.
In honour of the launch of these new models, the first 100 timepieces ordered from any version of the LUNA Volume 2 and Volume 3 collections are offered by subscription at a very attractive price.
