Moon phase shines on new design

First published: 01-08-2011

A leading watchmaker has released a new design which tracks the phases of the moon alongside more traditional functions.

Carl F Bucherer has announced the release of its Manero MoonPhase, the latest instalment to the Manero range.

The classic watch is encased in rose gold and comes with a Louisiana alligator leather strap with an 18-carat rose gold pin buckle.

Its 42-hour power reserve enables wearers to further enjoy its anti-relective coated sapphire crystal case which displays the day, date, month and its biggest selling point, the moon phase.

The Latin for Manero is manuaria, meaning "that which is directed by hand", which is exactly the phrase this timepiece sets out to fulfil.

It is encrusted with 21 jewels, is water-resistant to 30 metres and has a diameter of 38 mm.

Meanwhile, the minutes and hours really stand out with superluminova-coated hands.

The shimmering face of the watch completes its authentic, mature and elegant look.
