To early astronomers - from Galilei to Copernicus to Johannes Kepler- the importance of astral navigation could not be underestimated. As one of the oldest preoccupations of mankind, astronomy deals with all celestial bodies, from planets and their satellites to comets, meteors, quasars and galaxies and has continually aroused the curiosity of mankind. Our planet’s moon has been of particular interest, as it has a direct impact on the oceans effects our life on earth.

Ulysse Nardin has been producing watches with moonphases since the end of the 19th century. The moonphase is a complication that is at the heart of every astronomical instrument, as the phases of the moon control the tides, hence navigation.
