The Hublot MP-08 Antikythera Sunmoon watch is very different from the traditional moon phase watch in design and mechanical principle. The traditional moon phase watch will place the moon phase function in a special-shaped fan-shaped window to reflect the moon phase profit and loss with the different angle shielding generated by the moon phase disk on the movement.
The Hublot MP-08 Antikythera Sunmoon combines the ancient wisdom of astronomy with the design of a contemporary machine. The rotation of the moon pointer can accurately indicate the moon phase of a certain day, the shape of the moon to the sky, and the name of the constellation behind the moon. And the time it takes for the moon to pass through a constellation (relative to Earth, the location of the zodiac where the moon is located).
In addition to the complex manifestation of the “month,” the Antik Scirray Sun and Moon watch also contains a solar calendar display: the sun pointer indicates the constellation behind the sun in a certain day, and the sun needs to pass a constellation. time. Coupled with the record of hours and minutes, it can be said that the Antik Scirray Sun and Moon watch incorporates both macro and micro time dimensions, with 295 parts and 7 complex devices to fully reflect the changing of the sun and the moon.
This watch contains a flying tourbillon (without ball bearings) that rotates one revolution per minute to indicate seconds, while hours and minutes are displayed by traditional hands located in the center of the dial side movement. The frequency is 21600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz). Power reserve is 120 hours.
