Renowned as a leader in the manufacturing of single-hand watches, Meistersinger is now presenting its first astronomical watch – the Lunascope.
The slender stainless steel case of the Pangaea family forms the ideal backdrop for an unusually large moon-phase display. The upper half of the dial features a dynamic cut in which the moon moves across a dark blue, starry background. The generous diameter of this timepiece allows a realistic depiction of even fine details of the moon’s surface.
The natural impression of the Earth’s satellite corresponds to the astronomical precision with which the Lunascope represents the moon’s various phases. The moon takes 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.9 seconds to circumnavigate the Earth. Most watches round this figure down to 29.5 days via the movement, which means they deviate by eight hours per year and need to be corrected by one complete day every three years.
However, the movement specially designed for the MeisterSinger Lunascope is far more exact. Its moon-phase indicator only needs a slight adjustment after 128 years. The workings of the Swiss automatic movement in the Lunascope equipped with the moon-phase module can be viewed through the screwed glass exhibition back of the 40-millimeter case.
The Lunascope is available in two versions – with a sunburst dial in the dark blue of the moon’s background or with a silvery opaline dial, on which the circular date window at 6o’clock forms an optical contrast to the astronomical display. The blue model comes with a calfskin watchstrap in cognac, the silver-opaline version with a dark brown leather strap (crocodile grain).
