Believe it or not, 50 years have now passed since man first landed on the Moon. Nevertheless, there’s still plenty of fascinating news in the present day for fans of all things lunar, especially those who enjoy being different. Did you know, for example, that the Moon has moved a distance of nearly two metres away from the Earth over the past 50 years and will completely leave its orbit at some point in the future? Or that Mühle-Glashütte has now launched a brand-new Teutonia model that captures the Moon for eternity in a special window above the 6 o’clock marking? Underneath this specially formed window on the face of the watch, a lunar disc with a diameter of around ten millimetres rotates, completing a full cycle in 59 days. The disc contains not one, but two images of the Moon and is therefore able to provide a realistic day-by-day insight into its lunation from a new moon to a full moon and back to a new moon over a period of around 29.5 days.
