Sun and Moon XL
A modern revival of a very old watch design
This is the XL version of our Sun and Moon watch. The 45mm case is just the right size for the larger wrist, it's not too big and not too small.
How to read the time
The crescent shape on the watch represents 12 hours, with the time running from left to right.
To find the hour, you’ll need to check the position of the sun or moon inside the crescent shape.
At 6am the sun rises on the left. It reaches the middle of the crescent at midday, then continues until it reaches the last marker on the right at 6pm. After 6pm the moon rises on the left while the sun sets. The position of the moon then marks the hours from 6pm until 6am.
The minute hand is in the middle of the watch face, and this runs in the conventional way. Each marker represents five minutes.
A variety of animals populate the day and night sides of the watch, roughly mapped to the times of day when they would naturally appear.
