A disc, decorated with golden stars and two golden moons against a blue or white background representing the sky, rotates within an aperture. The disc is cut from a wafer of corundum crystal (sapphire).

Gold was condensed onto the disc by means of a vacuum process through a photographic mask to create the shape of the moons and stars.  The aperture is cut at its upper edge in order to represent the lunar cycle.

During the first days of each lunation, the leading edge of a golden moon becomes visible as a crescent on the right of the aperture and appears to wax as it emerges beyond the curved edge of the aperture representing the lunar terminator.

Half way through the lunation, the moon appears full. It then wanes as it disappears behind the terminator on the left of the aperture.

As the moon vanishes, the second moon on the disc is ready to appear on the right.

Patek Philippe: The Authorized Biography by Nicholas Foulkes

Patek Philippe at Baselworld 2017

A year with two anniversaries and fascinating debuts. Patek Philippe can look back to an uninterrupted legacy of 178 successful years in business, so it is not surprising that the suite of anniversaries is becoming denser. They prompt the Genevan manufacture to craft commemorative watches that recall significant events. In 2017, the Aquanaut collection is celebrating its 20th birthday with an anniversary model while the ultra-thin self-winding caliber 240 movement can showcase its many facets with a number of timepieces presented on the occasion of its 40th anniversary. The future is unfolding with a new perpetual calendar watch featuring a timelessly classic "vintage" design, and also with the latest milestones in the "Patek Philippe Advanced Research" series that are united in a limited edition of the Aquanaut Travel Time.
