The Ulysse Nardin Classico Luna

Using the Moon as inspiration, Ulysse Nardin designed a new watch to represent the phases of the moon in a watch the looks like a classic timepiece.

The Classico Luna watch does not seem like a special watch from a distance. In fact even from up-close it looks like an ordinary watch. One would think its only value and selling point is that it was designed by a high end luxury watchmaker.

However the main selling point of the Luna watch comes from its inspiration not any over the top appearance.

The Classico Luna watch features a moon phase disc that rotates around the center of the clock face every 12 hours. As it moves around the clock face the moon disc changes colors to show the phases of the moon following the moons 29.5 day cycle.

If course somehow the disc representing the moon is off by a fraction or by a day, you can easily adjust it by the correctors located in-between 5 and 6’ o’clock.

The slim design of the Luna watch compliments it perfectly. While most other watches feature thick cases and over the top mechanisms, the Luna not only emphasizes its main feature (the moon disc), but the simple classic design does not distract you from that main feature.

The men’s clock face features Roman Numerals. The date is shown in a circle at 6 o’clock. The clock hands are a slim line. However the hour hands head is shaped like a water droplet. A nice feature on the hour hand is that it features a detailed engraving of the Sun on it. A very appealing detail I must say, perfectly complimenting the rotating moon disc on the watch.

The Luna has been designed for both men and women. The men’s version comes in roman numerals as mentioned above. The women’s version comes with diamond indices instead of roman numerals.

Luna Men’s Version
• 40mm case
• Roman Numeral indices
• Silver and black dial design
• Stainless steel or 18k Gold
• Optional deployment clasp
• $8,500-$45,000 (price varies due to extra features such as a rose gold bracelet and diamond bezels/lugs.)

Luna Women’s Version
• 35mm case
• Diamond bezel/lugs and mother of pearl dial.
• Stainless steel or 18k Gold
• $8,900-$17,800 (depending on extra features)

The Classico Luna’s simple design makes it both quiet affordable and wearable. You can wear it both on formal and informal occasions. It is neither over the top luxurious nor cheap looking. The Luna is a truly versatile watch.
