Even if there is no genuine functional use for a moon phase show, it makes for an entrancing, beautiful spectacle on the dial. Generally concealed in a little window, this customary complication takes all important focal point with Le Rhone’s Hedonia Grand Moon Phase watch, quickly catching your eye with its larger than usual moon phase sign. For reference purposes, the moon circle is 28mm in width and the moon 9.9 mm. In addition to the fact that its sizes intrigue its execution, with a strikingly sensible portrayal of our celestial neighbour.
Le Rhone is an autonomous watchmaker settled in Geneva. The brand was made in 2013 by two business visionaries and beloved companions: Loïc Florentin and Timo Rajakoski. They will probably make watches with a dash of innovation and daringness, fabricating these with master craftsmen.
The larger than usual, exceptionally detailed moon is 3D laser-engraved on a brushed metal plate that circles under a ‘dark enormous’ brilliant foundation produced using sapphire with a multilayer metal statement. To make the stars, breaks have been cut into the plate and filled with Super-LumiNova. The iridescent hour and moment hands are not difficult to peruse against the dull, numberless dial.
If the moon phase sign is the fundamental fascination, there is more. The Hedonia Grand Moon is made with demanding meticulousness. It has a tonneau-molded case with a stylish energetic appeal and a bit of advancement. It is designed out of 316L stainless steel or pink gold. The width of 41mm is a versatile present day size and it will sit comfortably on most wrists. Its complex development comprises no less than 35 components. It is finely got done with rotating vertically glossy silk brushed and exceptionally cleaned surfaces. Elegantly bended woodwinds are etched from the case flanks to the carries. It is water-impervious to 100m.
Inside ticks a programmed development with an exclusive module for the interesting moon phase show. As an additional hint of complexity, the amendment of the easy to use moon phase instrument is performed by means of the crown. This makes activity simpler and the shortfall of a corrector leaves the case flanks unblemished. From a specialized perspective, the development – in view of a Soprod M100 with an exclusive moon phase module on top – runs at 28,800 vibrations each hour. A propeller-formed rotor winds the development in the two ways to save to 38 hours of force reserve.
An coordinated crocodile leather tie sets the last touch. The fixing is emblazoned with a Le Rhone propeller logo design. The watch is appended to the wrist through a collapsing buckle in coordinating material. A further exhibition of the brand’s meticulousness, the buckle spring/lock takes the state of the brand logo.
Pricing is set at CHF 14,900 in steel and CHF 28,500 in pink gold. It is likewise available in a smaller 37mm adaptation for ladies. For more data, please visit www.lerhone.com.
