Gentle reminder of the immemorial links between time measurement and the great ballet of the heavenly bodies, the moon-phase indication is an indispensable function of Patek Philippe’s supercomplicated watches and renowned perpetual calendars. It also takes pride of place in several ladies’ models, each one conceived in honor of this poetic complication much loved by women.
