    Good day everyone Im not sure if there is a thread already about this but Im just wondering how you guys set your moonphase? I know patek has an online moonphase calculator for their customers to use as a reference but unfortunately omega doesn’t have one. Cheers

    Plenty of options but I use the US Naval Observatory.

    Easily found with a search.

    I've been using the app Daff Moon on Android for a while now. Does the job nicely with an attractive interface. Donation model, but completely free to download and use should you wish. Link here: https://www.dafftin.com/

    A sextant, a compass, and a 6 pack of beer.

    The Hodinkee app (free) also has a "time" button on it at the bottom that shows everything at a glance - time, day, date, month, moon phase, leap year indicator, etc.

    Does the moon appear in a different phase for an Omega than it does for a Patek, etc? There are plenty of good ways to find what phase the moon is currently in, my wall calendar tells me.

    I believe it is the same phase but as per Omega the new moonphase watch is accurate up to 10yrs and needs to turn 1 click and you’re ready again for another 10 yrs if you can keep it running which I dont think is possible if you have multiple watch.

    That seriously is one of the nicest moonphase I’ve seen. That is one serious watch. I always like the look of moon phases and I unfortunately have never got one. I’m going to pick one up one of these days but probably just a used cheap quartz one. I see a used bulova moonphase someone selling local I’ve been thinking calling the dude to check it out. To me it’s one of the nicer complications but I’d prefer to have that be the only thing on the dial, well that and hands for time of course. My automatic hunting has gone well so I don’t mind adding a cheaper quartz so I can check out a moonphase for the first time.

    Cheers :thumbsup: I do adore the Reverso. Being a triple calendar with a moonphase, it's my most complicated watch by far, which means it can take a minute or two to set. But it's such a pleasure to interact with it whenever I pull it out of the watchbox. Matter of fact, I was setting it just yesterday morning and I noticed that as I was winding and clicking though the days and hours I found myself reflecting on what I had been doing at each point in time. It's actually nice just to pause and think back over the last few days like that.
