This is one of the first sport style moonphase watches around, and it is very cool looking as well. From Perrelet's
Titanium (Ti) collection, comes the Moonphase Titanium (ref. A5000/2) watch for 2010. It does have two cousins in steel that are a bit smaller and traditional looking, but this version in a 43.5mm wide titanium case with a sporty dial, and a large, centrally mounted moonphase indication disc is seriously unique timepiece. The moonphase disc has the two orb indicators surrounded by constellation style decor under a semi-opaque window. The exclusive Perrelet P-211 automatic movement has the time, moonphase indicator, and a periphery style date indicator. The hour indicators are lume covered and seem to remind me of piano keys. The case is classy looking and conveys Perrelet branding. The steel version has the same case, but in steel, and it is 42mm wide (a bit smaller). It has a black or sliver dial (ref. A1036/6 and A1039/7), and comes on a classier alligator as opposed to rubber strap. Perrelet offers one of the most interesting, and straight forward Moonphases watches this year, and I love the sporty twist of the Titanium model. Priced at between $5,500 - $6,350.
