Following the trends in the horological world since a considerable time, a study of the recent past shows that luxury watch makers have been creating watches, with the underlying theme of the moon.

Though the celestial entity has long been a centre of fascination for many, it seems to have caught up pace in the haute horology sphere with creations like the Romaine Jerome moon watch and the Chaykin Lunokhod timepiece.

The latest entrant to that sphere is Magellan watch’s Magulluna timepiece which virtually puts the celestial entity on the wrist of the wearers, in what could be a tribute to it.

Featuring a 43.5mm diameter casing, the presentation comes as a simplistic unit created out of refined stainless steel.

Unlike some of the bigger brands, there isn’t much use of novel and expensive fabrication, but instead uses a higher grade of the metal to make a watch, which will stand out purely on the finishing and craftsmanship involved. In a dome shaped, sapphire crystal covered dial, lies a black PVD coated, poke marked dial which has a garland of Roman numeral markings on the side which display the hours.

In the centre is the most artistic part which we just mentioned, brings forward a very realistic miniature surface rendering of the moon. Even the polished minute and hours hands have been shaped uniquely to work along with round surfacing of the dial. The sharp but eye appealing contrast is the thin red seconds hand which works around the other 2 hands.

Under the hood, or rather the dial is the ETA 2892 movement which powers itself by a self-winding mechanism. But we haven’t received word about the number of parts or the power reserve of this mini-engine.

However, the strapping of the watch is classic black, and doesn’t feature much artwork on it either. In short, this is one watch which will be known more for aesthetics and delicate craftsmanship, more than the use of high-end fabrication which the other brands are known to use.
