Over The Moon
In a dreamlike dance of cosmic proportions, the Arceau L’heure de la lune simultaneously displays the moon phases as seen in the northern and southern hemispheres, aided by two mobile sub-dials that appear to float above the moons.
With one sub-dial indicating the hour and the minute and the other the date, they rotate around the dial in accordance to the lunar cycle, hiding and revealing the moon discs, and making one complete circle around the dial in 59 days.
Made of mother-of-pearl, the northern hemisphere moon is deliberately positioned at ‘6’ while the southern hemisphere is at ‘12’. The moon at ‘12’ features a subtle hint of the Pegasus winged horse as envisioned by designer Dmitri Rybaltchenko.
