What is moon phase watch & how does moon phase watch work?

     Moon phase watches are a watch that displays the different phases of the moon through small holes in the dial, through which you can see the current phase of the moon, which, if it is the moon, means night. If it is the sun, it is daytime. In this type of watch, the term complication refers to any function on the watch that is not directly related to the display of time. Moon phase watch is an effective way for humans to describe the luminous portion of the moon as it orbits the earth. Similarly, watch with moon phase represents the current phase of the moon in its lunar cycle by hiding any non-illuminated parts with the help of an aperture.

How does moon phase watch work?

    Moon phase watches were among the first watch mechanisms to be developed. These moon phase complications usually involve placing two identical moons on a disk under the dial. The movement of the discs is controlled by a 59-tooth drive wheel that uses a watch hand to push the discs once a day. At the end of the prescribed 29.5-day lunar cycle, a second moon is seen in the aperture. The details of the moon phase disk depend on the design of the dial and aperture, while the drive wheel remains constant.
    The accuracy of most watches with moon phase is consistent, but it has been found that the standard 59-tooth drive wheel is limited in accuracy. As a result, standard moon phase watches were inaccurate by a full day once every two years and seven and a half months. Luxury brands use a 135-tooth drive wheel to improve accuracy. Such watches are off by one day after 122 years instead of seven and a half months,
      In the current era of modernization, people have seamless access to data and these moon phase watches do not meet the urgency. Therefore, the main reason for the growing demand for these moon phase watches includes the historical origins of the complication itself. This ensures that every watch possesses some major vintage appeal. In fact, the moon phase complication has a modern appeal more than anything else because it looks great, like your watch is telling you a story. There are two main types of moon phase complications in watches. The most common is the pocket moon phase watch, which graphically displays the moon and various moon phases in a crescent-shaped aperture. The other type of moon phase watch is known as a radial moon phase watch, which uses an indicator hand to track the moon phase cycle. 

How to set moon phase on watch

   The most common question about moon phase watches is how to set them up. The process of setting a moon phase watch begins with an in-depth understanding of the lunar cycle. As mentioned earlier, the lunar cycle is 29.53 days. This is the main reason moon phase watches use a 59 tooth gear. 29.5 times 2 is 59, which allows two identical moons to rotate through the aperture more accurately.
The steps for setting up a moon phase watch include.
   Determining the Moon Phase: After gaining a better understanding of the lunar cycle, the next step is to determine the current moon phase. This is probably the easiest step, as it can be accomplished by simply Googling it. Once the current moon phase is determined, we can tell if it is waxing, which is a cycle from no moon to full moon, or waning, which is a cycle from full moon to no moon. After determining the phase of the moon, we recommend it to proceed to the next step, setting the phase of the moon on the dial.

    The next step is to set the phases of the moon: pull the watch crown to the second position and turn the crown counterclockwise to set the watch to 6:30 p.m. We consider this a precautionary measure to ensure that it caused no damage to any of the devices in the complication. By pressing the corrector on the case side, the moon phase advances with the moon. We highly recommended it to count the number of days since the last new or full moon. This is done primarily to recognize the moon phase on the aperture. We find if it that 8 days have passed since the last full moon, then it is necessary to advance the moon phase until it becomes full. You simply press the corrector seven more times to calculate the seven days.

    FINALLY SET THE DATE: The last step in setting a moon phase wrist watch is to set the date on the watch back one day. When setting the time, cycle through the entire day to ensure that the date shown on the moonphase watch is one day later than the date shown on the moon phase watch.

How to read moon phase watch

    Moon phase watches usually have a small hole at the 6 digit position for the current moon phase. This small hole has a detailed description of the moon phase.
