This is a perfect “fusion of tradition and innovation” example. Amber Liu just launched her first KickStarter project on Aug 1st. She said the this is a project her dream for making the connection between the natural and the mechanism.
WHAT IS MOONPHASE?
A watch that combines the heritage of watchmaking and one of a kind design with an always visible moon and date calendar at a glance.
WHAT INSPIRED THE MOONPHASE IDEA?
Our lives may no longer be tied as closely to the moon’s orbit, just as the wristwatch has largely become an anachronism in this age of smart phones and smart watches. Which makes it all the more fitting to own a moonphase watch: its timeless charm and whimsical artistry remind us that we’re all just spinning through space on this pale blue dot, orbited by a glowing rock, mere cogs in a bigger clockwork.
The Artemis team had an idea to present the human natural connection to the nature, to the earth, the sun and the moon. That’s the start…Moon phase watches (or moonphase watches) are some of the most popular luxury watches for more than 100 years. It is one of the most complicated movement in watchmaking history. For a complete Astron rotation, the moon needs siderisch 27,3217 and synodisch 29,52 days. A simple lunar-phase-watch measures one moon cycle with 275 days. Then we put them together piece by piece. A center hand with an arrow is pointing to the date along the date of month. Month and day of week will also present on Artimes’ dial. It features a 40mm stainless steel case that is just 12mm thick and it comes with sub-dials for month and date plus a stunning blue pointer for the date of the month.

This is a sharp looking retro-styled Moonphase watch with a vintage dial, breguet-styled hands, and central date pointer. It also features a moonphase sub-dial at the 6:00 position on the dial. The watch uses the super dome crystal, which is extremely strong and protect your watch crystal from scratches.
