The Moon & Stars

From Auguste Reymond -

This is the Jazz Age Chronograph Moon phase, and if I'm honest, I think a very under appreciated watch.  While I realize that the case design might not be for everyone, for me that is the point.  It is different.  Of a different time.

The case measures 37.6 mm which I realize many people might feel is too small, but I feel is a wonderful size, particularly given the thickness of the case at 14.7 mm.

The movement is the Valjoux 7751, and perhaps my favorite detail?  The man in the moon is smiling out at us.  Call me sentimental, but it gives me a warm & fuzzy feeling ; )
