New Moon phase watches for him for 2017

Men’s watches with Moon phases exert their gravitational pull on the dials of these handsome timekeepers.

  • The Moon might be round but this watch is the epitome of lean with a white gold case just 9.9mm thick. Sober, refined and elegant, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Ultra Thin Moon model reveals the phases of the 29.5-day lunar cycle in a subtle aperture at 6 o’clock (£15,600).
  • The most traditional dress watch in Rolex’ otherwise sports-dominated arena, this Everose gold Cellini is revisited with a Moon phase complication. The full Moon, in grey meteorite, and the new Moon, depicted by a silver circle, rotate through the lunar cycle adding a touch of colour and motion to this timeless classic (£19,200).
  • Distinguished by its large seconds counter and smaller intersecting hours and minutes counter, Jaquet Droz’s sublime Grande Seconde model is endowed with an astronomical Moon phase complication and a beautiful inky-black onyx dial (£13,650).
  • Launched in 2016, Cartier’s Drive watch became an overnight gentlemen’s watch sensation. Masculine yet sophisticated and emblazoned with Cartier’s hallmark iconography, this Drive model is fitted with an astronomic Moon phase complication, which will only need to be corrected by one day every 125 years (£6,300).
  • It’s ironic, but the first watch ever to be worn on the Moon in 1969, Omega’s legendary Speedmaster Chronograph, didn’t get a Moon phase complication until last year. Housed in a 44mm steel case with a blue dial and ceramic bezel, beady-eyed folk might spot an astronaut’s footprint in the realistically recreated Moon (£7,140).
