The Grande Seconde Moon Black Enamel tells a story that precedes the dawn of time, harking back to when the Moon was  man’s sole measure of the passing months.

Part of the Grande Seconde collection, this model featuring a black enamel dial is to make its debut at Baselworld 2018. Enhanced with a moon phase complication, the model acknowledges the significance of the lunar cycle to watchmakers, and pays homage to the mysterious and complex choreography that links Earth to Sun and Moon to Earth.
