    First moon phase seen in a pocket watch?

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently writing an article regarding the history of the moon phase complication and in my research I have stumbled upon this item.

    Is there any further information regarding the very first usage of a moon phase within a pocket watch?

    Cheers!

    I guess the britsh museum is more than seroius and 1600/10 sounds very early. Probably not a lot collectors knows a lot about this unaffortable museum stuff. May be you get some further informations if you contact this guy Antike Taschenuhren Sammlung historischer Spindeluhren he speaks english.

    I hope we get some intersting answers over here also. I'll habe a look in my books tonight but probably I don't find interesting informations.

    Kind regards Silke
