The moon phase is displayed according to the monthly loss and profit. This function displays the state of the moon based on the period of 29.5 days (the average number of days in the year). There are two moons on this dial, and the moon phase can only transfer one-sixtieth of the moon pattern circular every day.
The inner edge of the moon phase dial has 59 teeth (the 59-tooth comes from the moon phase profit and loss, which is the average of one cycle every 29.5 days). After the moon phase is pushed by the transmission wheel, it advances one tooth every day. At this time, the change of moon phase changes can be timely displayed on the dial.
Tips on adjusting the moon phase dial
Because the precise rotation period of moon is 28 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds. Therefore, every about 33 months, the moon phrase shows an error of 24 hours.
There is usually a moon phase adjustment button, and the moon phase display is relatively independent of functions. Remember, don’t adjust the moon phase between 9pm and 3am. The gears of this period are in a tightly fitting state, which affects the performance and life of the movement during operation of the gear.
