With its two bronze-coloured lunar pastilles, which appear and disappear behind the wisps of a cloud, the Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène corresponds to the typical moon phase model. Although seemingly classic, on closer observation it reveals a series of refined features, giving this piece touches of distinction which make it unique.
In this timepiece, the moon is not golden, but actually russet, possessing that glow specific to exceptional nights. Or the fact that its surface is made up of craters – known as lunar seas – obtained by successively layering transfers and involving great artisanal complexity. Further, the floral pattern decorating the dial increases the intrinsic femininity of this complication.
The Tonda Métropolitaine Sélène is impressive in terms of its technical features and accuracy, but also possesses a unique artisanal beauty, resulting from the continuous decorative care responsible for its preciousness. These operations are carried out by hand, never substituted, giving it a perceptible and unique value.
A push-piece at 9 o‘clock enables the wearer to independently index the moon in relation to the day and time in order to match its phases to the geographic location of reference. This moon correction device features a safety system thanks to the flexible blade, which prevents the gear from being destroyed in the event of incorrect operation. The movement is entirely circular-grained and decorated according to the highest standards of fine watchmaking.
