    What kind of statement does a moon phase watch make?

    I like watches with moon phases but I'm not sure exactly why. I was wondering what people thought about what kind of statement a watch with a moon phase makes? Is there any particular style that these fall into?

    And my bigger question is - how accurate is the moon phase and does it serve any actual purpose to anyone?

    I consider them in the dress watch catagory, and also its about the complicaion if its a mechanical. I have one using the valjoux 7751, and its very accurate. I bought it for the movement though and not the moonphase complication.

    That or it can be used for keeping track holidays timed to those pesky lunar based religious calendars.

    Be careful that you're looking at true moonphase watches and not merely am/pm indicators. (Assuming true moonphase is what you're interested in)

    Yeah, I bought one of these. It said "Moonphase". What they meant was "Day/Night"

    Just another useless complication, but I liked selling them for the extra bucks.

    Id like to see a moonphase is important to me.. I live near the water and the best time for night diving .. or being in the water at all is during a full moon. Id like a moonphase on my dress watch as its a talking point in a conversation (ah yess.. tommorow is a full moon gentleman.)

    I think it signifies the wearer has good taste, and appreciates the finer things in life.
