VINTAGE JULES JURGENSEN WATCH
Starting in 1740, when the company was founded in Denmark, Jules Jurgensen began producing some beautiful timepieces of great design and time endurance. Nowadays, Jules Jurgensen watches are no longer being produced, and their vintage models are a rarity. This particular model is even more rare, given the moon phase complication, which is not common for Jules Jurgensen watches.
What is a moon phase watch?
By definition, a moon phase watch is one that relays the 29.5-day lunar cycle by exhibiting the current moonphase in an aperture on the dial. That’s also known as a moon-phase complication, complication meaning any feature on a watch that’s not directly related to the time display. A moon phase, by the way, is mankind’s practical way of describing the luminous (or visible) portion of the moon as it orbits the planet. Likewise, the bulk of moonphase watches present the moon in its current phase of the lunar cycle, using the aperture to hide any non-luminous parts. As one might imagine, specific designs and visuals vary from piece to piece.
Some of our Moon Phase watches rotate every 24 hours (moonphase-like) and others have the long moon phase watch function which rotates every 29.5 days.
