Luna Magna

In a starry sky, a large moon alternates between light and dark as it moves through its phases. Luna Magna is the largest rotating moon ever built into a wristwatch.

3d rotating moon

Luna Magna features a three-dimensional moon. With this original timepiece, the Swiss watchmaker with English roots makes a lasting impression by presenting the largest rotating moon ever created in relief for a wristwatch. Beneath an off-centred dial at 12 o’clock, which constitutes one of the house’s aesthetic signatures, Arnold & Son has placed a rotating sphere that accurately represents the appearance of the moon’s quarters.

off-centered indications

Presented in a 44 mm case, Arnold & Son has recreated one of its distinctive designs. The off-centred hours and minutes dial at 12 o’clock frees up substantial space for displaying complications, such as this spherical moon measuring 12 mm in diameter. By placing most of the volume in these sapphire crystals, the Luna Magna’s case has a total height of 15.9 mm. Lastly, to bring the overall piece together, the deeply tapered lugs extend the sapphire crystal’s curvature to meet the wrist’s natural curve.

The large moon emerges from the calibre’s main plate without upsetting the timepiece’s overall balance. Arnold & Son has drawn on its remarkable creativity to make Luna Magna a well-proportioned watch that showcases the incredible volume of its moon.  Thus, the lunar globe appears halfway up the movement, perfectly positioned between the top and bottom. The upper part is encased in a glass box. This technique has been repeated on the case-back side, where the sapphire crystal rests on the wrist.
