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).

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
