With the Lunascope, MeisterSinger presents its first astronomical single-hand watch. The slender stainless steel case of the Pangaea family forms the ideal backdrop for an unusually large moon-phase display. The upper half of the dial features a dynamic cut in which the moon moves across a dark blue, starry background, just like looking at the sky on a clear night. The natural impression of the Earth’s satellite corresponds to the astronomical precision with which the Lunascope represents the moon’s various phases. The moon takes 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.9 seconds to circumnavigate the Earth.
Most watches round this figure down to 29.5 days via the movement, which means they deviate by eight hours per year and need adjusting by one complete day every third year.
However, the movement specially designed for the MeisterSinger Lunascope is far more exact. Its moon-phase indicator only needs a slight adjustment after 128 years. The workings of the Swiss automatic movement in the Lunascope equipped with the moon-phase module can be viewed through the screwed glass exhibition back of the 40-millimeter case.
Among other honors, the Lunascope was awarded both the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award for its outstanding design.
