The Lunar Date
A combination of style and added time measurement functions. Track the phase of lunar cycles with the moon phase dial below center. The date is kept with a hand above center. The tooled radial contoured pattern adds a three dimensional effect to the crisp white dial. The heart of the Lunar Date is a mechanical Swiss automatic wind movement highly decorated with perlée pattern, côtes de Genève, blued screws, and skeletonized rotor. A hand-made, hand stitched rich brown leather strap compliments this classic look.
Limited to only 90 pieces.
Movement: High grade 26 jewel automatic wind movement that starts as a base 2892. It is then greatly modified in Switzerland by our movement partner. The addition of a moon phase and “date by hand” function is added before being decorated with perlée pattern, côtes de Genève, blued screws, and skeletonized rotor. 38 hour power reserve. Adjusted to 5 positions.
Case: High strength 316 stainless steel. 42mm diameter at the bezel, 40mm at the case center. 13mm height. Brushed finish.
Dial: Custom tooled contoured, radial pattern dial.
Glass: Sapphire glass on the front and on the case back.
Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds at center. Moon phase below center. Date keeping by hand above center.
Water resistance: Tested to 5 ATM.
Strap: The strap is constructed, starting with a Zermatt calfskin liner. This top quality leather is non-reactive to the skin, and anti-microbial. From here, a Buttero smooth full grain deep brown calf skin from Italy is used. This rich brown leather will soften with time. The Buttero hides are vegetable tanned, and will develop a rich luster on the surface, and patina wonderfully. These type of skins are known world-wide for their beautiful grain and rich aroma. Each strap is hand cut and stitched to perfection, with either white, or dial accent blue color stitching. Strap lug width is 22mm. Straps made to perfection by David Lane Design.
