    Affordable quartz Moon dial watches

    Can anyone name me an affordable TRUE moon phase (28 days, not 24 hours) analogue quartz watch? I have Googled, Ebayed etc, and found nothing so far.

    Elysee Monumentum might have a true moon phase movement. I believe the Miyota 6p80 is a true moon phase.

    I don't think you'll find one under $100. There aren't many at any price; for some reason they're no longer popular, even though the Ronda 708 movement is available and cheap:

    That's only a day/night indicator, not a moonphase.

    The only one's i know of in the affordable price range are a range of citizen eco drive models.

    I believe they are proper moonphase, but i've had no personal experience with these.

    No, it's a true moonphase; I own a watch with this movement. Look at the dial: it's got stars everywhere, and two moons (no sun).

    I also have a Citizen similar to the one you show; it's very nice, but out of production, AFAIK.

    Oh i see, as it moves on the right of the window it remains a crescent moon etc??

    The Citizen may bee out of production, but they are still readily available new from ebay.

    I just did a quick search of "moon dial watch" on Amazon and the first page showed several in the $30 and $40 range.

    If you look carefully, you will see that they are day/night moon "phase", ie one rotation per day, and not the TRUE one rotation per 29-30 days.
