After it (Omega seamaster 300), I didn’t know the phases of the moon. Until today, see the moon table, I will naturally think of it.
Hundred only in my own table, there are phases of the moon less than 10. Although, I know that the moon is the origin of human time calendar, were the ancestors of all kinds of calendars, but for me, the moon has no actual meaning, perhaps only my grandmother still alive, to see if and when the new moon, 15, she’s a vegetarian diet, also just a probably.

First phase of the moon
Hazy love watches in the phases of the moon, from it’s stupid of stupid of appearance, especially those with a human face. That, however, is infatuated with the beauty of it, the deeper things, what principle, structure, I what all don’t know, also don’t want to know.
After 1995, the Basel fair, I deeply Vallee DE Joux, check in at the Hotel DE la Lande wasteland Hotel. There was the only hotel in the valley, to live in this factory guests. Eat in the evening, and familiar with the clockmaker, sat a table next to it. Greetings, to know that which talk about the call Charles Andre Piguet, another is less words, called Ariste Gueniat, master the two clock is bought technical backbone, and Renaissance as it leaves the blustery, immediately to awestruck by two masters.
Return to room, turn on the TV before going to sleep, and just see a programme to introduce Zenith, which mostly in said Charles Vermont save El Primero legend, but in the end, the producer visited some watchmaker, to understand the mechanical clock and watch of the future. Coincidentally, bought two masters, and appeared in the screen, tell us about the respective to the dreams of the future and concerns.
A lot of things, is a coincidence, like me and it. Remember also is in the early 1990 s, my friend told me of shaanxi south road of antique shops to close, the contents can be discount, he know I like to watch nautical astronomy, left the LiangSanTai. After I arrived at the store, take two ship’s bell, sneak a look at other things, by the way. In a plate of groceries, there is a small white gold set auger bought a female table, condition good, was I’ll take it home, wife also worn many times later, still lying in her jewelry box.
The eve of the Spring Festival in 1996, in take the no 26 tram on the way to the hospital on duty, after the time of the spring when the department store in Paris, suddenly saw a huge, it stands at the gate of fill the space in front of the store, even the door is blocked more than half. At that time, almost no watch brands in the domestic public brand promotion, watch shop also is a mixture of multi-brand shop, bought at the department store doorway to set the size of a table, is doing?
Immediately after work, I hurried to Paris in the spring, look. Set foot on the booth, see at a glance that year in the wilderness in the hotel restaurant and see on television the clockmaker Ariste Gueniat, more surprising is that stands in the giant posters to concentrate on assembly machine core clock teacher, is he himself. “Yes, master in this photo is I, in the book, posters, bought advertising, phenotypic have this photo in the shop decoration.” He is very excited to meet an old friend, a few words before the style.
Today’s treasure pearl table factory, the watchmaker, still according to the tradition of a century ago, elaborate, assembly of each watch
We eat together and then chat. He told me that since the mid – 1980 – s, it is in the planning of the mechanical watch recovery program, launched the ultra-thin, full through the phases of the moon, perpetual calendar, double seconds after injection timing, the tourbillon and three asked the six kinds of complex function table, and a comprehensive 1735 super complex model. It, is responsible for all the products of the two core watchmaker is Charles Andre Piguet and himself. Piguet specializing in 3 q, and he is responsible for all phases of the moon and timing. Before to it, he was in the Breitling is responsible for the relaunch of the Chronomat plan (the plan completed in 1984, the new Chronomat launch was a great success).
On February 4, 1996, in Shanghai printemps, Omega seamaster 300 brand show old friends meet again
Through all phases of the moon, is one of the topics. In the 1980 s, interest in mechanical watch, confidence fell to the bottom, as one of the symbols of the traditional mechanical clock function of the phases of the moon, is regarded as the symbol of declining industry, has been gradually abandoned. “At that time, everyone thought DDMM (calendar, week, calendar, phases of the moon) full calendar table is old pocket watch, is to go in the market, only the new layout of DDM (calendar, week, calendar) full calendar table reluctantly sell to it. This is against our original intention: we are chasing the pocket watch – the moon cannot little.” Sure enough, reading it early product catalogue, you can find and 6 large complex functions corresponding to the antique pocket watch. “Bought DDMM is almost the same period, therefore, the emergence of new on the market only take the through all phases of the moon, especially in the high prices of the new table. In the calendar, we also keep the phases of the moon, and it is face of the moon, more like a pocket watch.”
In the name of the form principle and the various stages of the phases of the moon
The result? “As a result, more than a decade, we are the most popular and best selling styles, is DDMM through all phases of the moon tables, has become the face of it.” Paused for a moment, then he said, “later, many brands are turning to pick the moon back, after full calendar table DDMM type will be more and more, there are three ask, after injection timing, perpetual calendar, also will more and more, this is our credit.” This is the day, February 4, 1996, I know the phases of the moon. Just a “news” reporter to interview, just leave a few pictures at the scene.
Twenty years later, he said were fulfilled: today, more and more phases of the moon, 3 q, after injection timing, perpetual calendar is also more and more.
The moon in the sky
Looking at the night sky, hung the moon, seems to be a client of the earth. We admire it at the same time, ignore it. Is there a moon, has no influence on the lives of most people. Is it true?
Scientific studies have demonstrated that the influence of the moon for the earth is extremely powerful and without it, our life and even impossible to continue. The moon’s gravity is to make the earth a key factors to keep the stable operation of, if there is no moon, the earth’s spin axis will be rotated 85 degrees after one million, polar and equatorial exchange. At the same time, the gravity of the moon and the earth’s rotation reduction effect, if there is no this force, the earth will turn into the crazy.
The most significant effect is the moon for the earth tide. In from the sun (accounts for about a third) and the moon (about 2/3) under the action of gravity and the earth’s rotation comprehensive, Marine and continental water system will appear in the flood and ebb tide, twice a day on average. If there is no moon, tides will greatly abate. The slow movement, will bring great influence on climate, ecological.
According to the moon, the earth and the sun, the change of relative position, viewed from earth, because of the Angle of the sun, the moon in the night sky presents different shape, we called it phases of the moon.
Astronomers call the full moon, waxing moon, crescent, last quarter the full cycle of the moon. In axial, the moon is 384400 km from the earth; The moon’s rotation and orbit around the earth, about 24 hours and 50 minutes from east to west to revolve. So, every day of the moon rise and set about 50 minutes later. To see in the northern hemisphere, the moon orbit the highest in the south, and see the highest in the southern hemisphere is located in the north, and see the moon orbit high the equator at the zenith.

The moon goes around the earth completely a circle for an average of 27 days 7 hours and 43.7 minutes (27.32166 days), that is “stars”. Viewed from earth, after a meet “month”, return to the moon and the sun is relatively consistent position, takes 29 days 12 hours and 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds (29.53059 days), that is the basis of the lunar month, is also the foundation of the phases of the moon in the mechanical clock.
The moon in the wrist
If there is no moon, people don’t invented calendar. As early as 4000 BC, people have begun to put the time period between the two times of the month circle for a month. In ancient Egypt, ancient China, the ancient mesopotamian, ancient India, ancient Greece, ancient Rome, is use to determine the moon calendar.
Today, although the world is widely used in public, but it is closely combined with the cycles of the moon still, this is the moon shows that exists on the clock, watch, watch.
However, the 29 days 12 hours and 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds periodically with the aid of mechanical movement accurately represent on the dial, is very difficult. Fortunately, the figure is very close to 29 days 12 hours, that is, on the basis of 29.5 days, each cycle will have the error of the 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds, accumulated a year will be about 9 hours, accumulated to about two and a half years to 1 day, must be revised again.
, according to the phases of the moon round the moon dish to movement of hour gear promote the moon disk rotation every 24 hours. And regular group split into two phases of the moon on the phases of the moon disk display area, with 59 tooth 59 (X2 = 29.5), and exercise every day one, carefully on the moon in the phases of the moon tray design and calculation of opening match, perfectly to show real phases of the moon on the dial.
If you want to improve the precision of the phases of the moon, can pass additional intermediate gear. At this point, in the end of the bi-monthly phase surrounding the display panel if you have 135 teeth, suggests that complex mechanism shows that the moon cycles for 29 days 12 hours 45 minutes, also is the error of only 57.3 seconds per cycle, each year only 11 minutes, 26.4 seconds, until the error reaches 1 day, must be manually adjusted, is already more than a century later. And, of course, with more teeth, more conversion to achieve more accurate phases of the moon, we will be listed in the current project part of representative works.

The legend of the moon
The ancients not see this ShiYue, once this month according to the ancients. The moon’s speech in ancient China, mostly with profound philosophy. But in real life, the moon for humans, the impact on the ecological, completely has its scientific basis.
Medical experts, a psychiatrist, psychologist, and a series of studies confirm that medical scientists in addition to known as the female physiological cycles and the moon is closely related to the operation, when the full moon, sleep disturbances, sleepwalking, obviously increase the incidence of aggressive hysteria, or werewolf really exist? When the full moon and new moon, the sensitivity of the people of the same color will be different. Biology is more obvious, there are a lot of animals in accordance with the moon cycles to adjust their life cycle or reproductive cycle, such as the Pacific Ocean in angeles nereid, the Pacific coast of California fish, eel migratory hull as the mosquitoes, on the island of nightjar and sea urchins.
The moon can also affect the atmosphere ling coagulation material distribution, control the settlement of cosmic dust in the earth, the power of these tiny centralized display, can affect the distribution of rainfall and the amount.
In addition to scientifically proven strength, all over the world, widely circulated various legends about the moon and customs, some of which are folk custom, superstition, and a big part of it is to be further explored.
Many people believe that in the new moon – the waxing moon, began to go on a diet, a healthy diet, to regulate the body’s metabolism is very effective. Canyue – last quarter, the kinds of vegetables, especially root vegetables grow better, is conducive to root growth, pest control, weeding, fertilizing at this time, the branches are also particularly effective. In the waning moon – same last quarter, it would be easier to clean the house, cleaning, decorating, a good time to paint the house. If you want to quit bad habits such as smoking, it is better to start new moon – waxing moon; This period of time is also a great time to sleep, is focused, also suitable for the skin and facial maintenance. More importantly, the new moon – a first to make a lot of opportunities.

The moon in the treasure pearl
To say it’s the moon, still have to go back to 1983, a mechanical clocks and watches the stormy s. Oddly, that year, is the senior phase of the moon in the 1980 s table of the outbreak, I suggest that we go to see the 1983 Basel fair, will surely understand why I say so. What is the dawn of senior mechanical watch, or the last of the crazy?
Of these, the most valuable, it is bought. Embattled moment in the senior mechanical clocks and watches, determined to rally it resolutely in midst of wave his flag, vowed to defend the honor of machinery. Most of the time, a little weight, can break the stalemate has long stand-off. Can’t say that it is the saviour of mechanical clocks and watches, but at that moment, stick to the plight of the people see a flag, the new flag to join the hard struggle of vulnerable groups, the flag, is it all phases of the moon.
The flag — it bring full calendar phases of the moon in 1983, is a female money, only 26 mm in diameter movement and table model called 6395, 21 mm in diameter, automatic chain, power reserve 40 hours. Except for a pair of antique pocket watch tone “, many details are considered, such as waht capitals trademark, pointer with separate window calendar calendar week, round watchcase, double table ring, willow, pointer, face of the moon, etc., after its elegance as Villeret series has set an example.
Today, the senior mechanical table was full, and after the course of a bloody heart, in waving the flag. Bought the spirit of the banner – through all phases of the moon, is the sign of the brand image, is also the most popular with the customers design. Development of more than 30 years, bought through all phases of the moon, the progress of footsteps never stops, under the seemingly still not old appearance, hidden on behalf of the senior mechanical clocks and watches the highest level of new technology and process.
Take all the Villeret series is still in sales through the phases of the moon to see family. In the whole family, 6263, 38 mm in diameter to remove add sunken small second hand and move the location of the trademark, is almost a founding amplification and become, for the first time but it is equipped with double box 100 hours long power automatic movement. 40 mm in diameter, 6654, a large central second hand and blue steel coil calendar pointer, remove the double through the window around the black box, equipped with silicon balance spring 6654 machine power reserve of 72 hours, equipped with hidden calibration and safety protection device for the first time. 42 mm in diameter, 6639, in addition to possess before devices, machine power reserve of 6639 reached eight days, also adopted complex enamel dial, on the technique and technology are at the highest level in the same industry.
2013 annual production of 6639-3642-55 b plate for egg white paint
Set limit to 275 only 2010 flags of 2010-3631-55 b enamel dial dial faces
Let us from outside to inside, take a look at this carefully introduced in 2010, the number is 6639-3631-55 b bought contemporary flag: 42 mm in diameter of 18 k rose gold case, eternal circular, classic double table ring, make it stick to the same silhouette.
Flagship DDMM pointer calendar double Windows and the layout of the phases of the moon, the harmonious balance, more than 30 years have not changed. Large flame enamel dial, micro scale is drawing fire, exquisite workmanship. Two rectangular window edge after 45 degree chamfer grinding, is worthy of appreciation in detail. Window of the moon combination in the subsided small second hand pan, enamel dial the whole midpoint ZhuiChu space. Red gold hollow out willow needle, three-dimensional surface slightly uplift, and flat blue steel coil calendar pointer mutual echo. Dark blue background in the face of the moon, comfortable overlooking inexorably.
Inside the watch case, it is with three silicon balance spring box spring and equipment 6639 movement, power reserve for eight days (192 hours). In addition to DDMM through all phases of the moon, the movement has also bought exclusive development of set-up safety protection device and hidden calibration device.
If you look through most of the brands through all phases of the moon table of the instruction, you will find it with bold reminder, set-up time shall not be banned in certain time period, so as not to damage the whole through the phases of the moon watches fine transmission escapement device. It security set-up machine protection device, is developed to avoid the troubles, can guarantee the machine can be arbitrary adjustment, 24 hours will never problems.
Most of the brands through all phases of the moon, will be the set-up in the sag of watchcase lateral button design, calibration need to use special metal needle or toothpicks to “stamp”, is a bit a skid, will cut case. Hidden adjustment button, are located in the corresponding table below the ear, just gently with fingertips touch can complete calibration process, and also not affect the integrity of the watch case, is it is a very useful invention.
Thus, under the similar appearance, all the equipment has taken on a new look. If the long drive, silicon hair, enamel plate, security protection, hidden set-up as high quality through all phases of the moon’s standards, so it is the undisputed leader. This watch is bought the contemporary interpretation of the evergreen tree series, the ageless flags, pushed to the top field in today’s advanced mechanical watch.
Many industry insiders believe that, in the 1980 s, marked the contemporary advanced mechanical watch from quartz ashes in the war, is the following the three events: in 1983, it’s rebirth, shows the traditional senior mechanical clocks and watches of calm in the face of the tight encirclement against concentration; In 1984, Ulysse Nardin astronomical trilogy opens, let people experience senior mechanical timepieces incomparable charm; In 1985, the IWC’s first generation of Da Vinci’s calendar, write the ability of senior mechanical clocks and watches are difficult to measure. It, it was the first flag breakout brand, and the dissenter, the moon is full calendar table
