Geo.Graham The Moon

Celestial mechanics

January 2013 His head up to the sky, George Graham had a great love for observing the Moon while creating his time machines. He spent lots of his time staring at the universe and finding many solution to his mechanical watch making dilemma. Friend of the astronomers, he worked on Sir Newton's theories of gravitation to elaborate very precise mechanisms combining the magic of the sky and watch making science.

Geo.Graham The Moon is a history making celestial representation. Its name pays tribute to the GRAHAM tradition and heritage descending from George Graham who engraved his signature on each of his exclusive creations since 1695.

It is a truly unique watch that combines a flying tourbillon with a high-precision retrograde moon-phase perpetual function, the cycle being calculated on the Moon's exact synodic period for a duration of 122 years. At the end of each synodic period, the retrograde mechanism ensures that the Moon jumps back to the beginning of a new moon-phase cycle.

Big in appearance, our Moon only weights 0.07 grams and is hand-painted by local craftsmen in Le Locle. To avoid any damage on the lunar disc and attenuate the retrograde fall, a double absorber system has been developed exclusively for GRAHAM by Christophe Claret in Locle.
