    Good luck whatever you are going to do, be it square, damascus, without lugs, with ETA or Seagull or TT or 6798 small second modified to moonphase indication (which still is impossible).
    Kind regards

    Wouldn't the sensible thing to do be to ask movement manufacturers and/or suppliers?

    Or, you know, start a topic about it in a DISCUSSION forum.

    So you think a guy who is looking to make a watch is best served by not asking companies that maje/supply movements?

    Yep, like this topic

    Is that possible to place the second hand below the minute and hour hand?
    or this

    Is it possible to simply replace date wheel to a Moonphase plate to make it a moonphase watch?
    To me OP should get some basic knowledge on how a watch works first.
