An anodized aluminum dial with hand-blued steel hands has a cut-out in its lower half for the hand-painted moon phase display. The timepiece is also linked by name to the Moon, and keeps track of its changing illumination in a quite fascinating and decorative way. The Lunaris is also a joy to listen to. Its “passing strike” means that it sounds a bell with a single strike once every hour. The winding mechanism and adjusters for the hands and moon phase display, as well as the regulator for the eight-day clock, are all conveniently located on the back. The balance the Lunaris achieves between design and aesthetics makes it a true Erwin Sattler gem.
