Moonphase watches

Humanity has an enduring fascination with the moon. Chukchi shamans in Siberia thought they could obtain magical powers by exposing themselves naked to moonlight, while for the Aztecs, the dark side of the moon was thought to be a bringer of death. Other cultures have made this celestial body a symbol of rebirth and some think it can cause lunacy.

As the dark is drawing in, it’s a perfect time to highlight watches featuring moon phases. Although essentially useless in our modern age – the complication was supposedly invented for old clocks because people relied on moonlight to travel at night – it is still a romantic addition to any timepiece.

From the delicate beauty of Zenith’s interpretation to the mesmeric DB25L from De Bethune, we’ve picked our ten favourite moonphases. Magical enough for any shaman.
