Well, if I am honest with myself, I have to admit that "Mido on Monday" was a bit of a stinker (Mido, you could have been less helpful, but I'm hard pressed to think of how that might be possible). So we will reload and try something new -
Moon Phase on Monday
So to kick things off, my personal all-time favorite, and one that always brings a smile to face when I think back upon picking it up at the Auguste Reymond head office back when it was in Tramelan.
This is the Jazz Age Chronograph Moon Phase. Truth be told, I was never a huge fan of the naming conventions for the models, but names aside it is a fantastic watch.
Which as you can see I did with a custom made purple ostrich strap from Lic of Belgium. Now a quick point for full disclosure - I did represent Auguste Reymond in North America a few years ago, and I do currently represent Lic straps. And while I don't currently represent Auguste Reymond, I am still a fan and a proud owner! And now that there is "newish" ownership, I have faith that some really good things might be coming from the brand now based in Nidau, and I promise to keep you posted!
In checking out the Auguste Reymond online shop, it seems that there might be a few of these available, so if you're so inclined I would advise you to move "sharpish".
Here are the pertinents, straight from the source -
3 bar (30m/100ft)
Case dimension (mm)
Case thickness (mm)
Strap width (mm)

And until next time -
Don't let the moon phase you!
