Switzerland based watch brand ochs und junior presents moon phase blue patina, a new pure metal execution of Ludwig Oechslin’s moon phase watch. Its blue, blue-black and gray hues are not the result of added color. They come from a controlled chemical process for oxidizing brass, which ochs und junior developed specifically for its watch parts.
Patination is a technique for dial contrast used by Ludwig Oechslin since the first ochs und junior prototypes in 2006 (the story of patination at ochs und junior). Each moon phase (blue patina) watch is hand-patinated, hand-assembled, and hand-regulated by ochs und junior watchmaker Sandra Flück at the ochs und junior workshop in Lucerne (the ochs und junior workshop). ochs und junior plans to manufacture about 5 moon phase blue patina watches in 2016 out of a total of about 50 moon phase watches.
