The moon phase watch is a personalized watch with a moon phase display function.
Through the moon phase plate on the dial, people can grasp the changes in the moon each time, and it is very popular among people with extensive experience. Such as A. Lange & Sohne 1815 series month phase watch. But now I want to appreciate the other series watches of the brand — Saxonia collection, an annual calendar with a moon phase function watch.

Knowledge about how to choose a Moon Phase Watch
Moon phase functions are often placed in a special-shaped and semi-circular window. And this particular shape consists of a semi-circular arc and two small arcs. This well-designed shape is combined with the moon on the moon phase dial. Due to the function, it tells us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or the end of a cycle.

Compared with the moon phase function, the almanac function of this watch seems to be more sought after. At the same time, this is a limited edition watch (only 25 pieces). And it is the first gray dial watch of brand with white hour markers and large calendar display window.

38.5mm diameter silver grey dial is 9.8mm in thick. The markers are white gold sticks that with the same material dots up them. Silver hands in sword shape reflect a simple and charm feeling.

The sub-dial is located at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock respectively, and the balanced layout provides perfect interpretation, which is the consistent feature of the A. Lange & Sohne watch. The date display window at 12 o’clock is particularly eye-catching on the dial. And such a unique design is also the breakthrough in the brand giving consumers more choices.

Faithful to the classic design, the watch features hour, minute, small seconds, almanac (month, week, date) and moon phase display. The date display only needs to be adjusted once a year at the end of February, while the moon phase display can run accurately for 122.6 years.

With patented automatic zero return device of the brand, the movement will pause just through pulling the crown. And the second hand is automatically zeroed to set the time conveniently and accurately.

Surrounded by screws, polished case is 18K white gold, which adds a vintage element to the watch.

Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can appreciate the precise operation of the movement. And the L.085.1 movement (30.4mm diameter in size and 5.4mm in thick) provides a 46-hour power reserve.

The strap of the watch is also very attractive: a bright blue alligator strap with an 18K white gold buckle securely ensures this watch stay at the wrist well.
