EPOS 3440 Big Moon
Size Matters - EPOS develops a big moon complication
The EPOS engineers showcase their technical abilities with the in-house big moon complication as an exclusive novelty for 2018.
The design of the new ‘EPOS 3440 Big Moon’ timepiece is inspired by the famous ‘EPOS 3391 Blue Stars’ watch, one of the company’s top-selling models. However, this masterpiece takes the best of its predecessor and refines it with some exciting new features.
The engineers at EPOS worked meticulously on this new moon phase watch. Powered by a well- known mechanical self-winding ETA 2892 movement in a wonderfully decorated execution, the timepiece is equipped with several special features.
Needless to say, the elaborated dial in its EPOS signature look and the in-house developed big moon module are the centerpieces of this new model. The extra big moon has been moved to the top of the watch to give it a more prominent position. Moreover, the moon and the printed stars are both luminous and thus glow in the dark. It is up to the new owner to choose between a dark-blue or dark-grey dial with applied index, both completed with a stunning sunray finish. Furthermore, the watch is fully equipped with special functions like asymmetrical placed weekday and month indication, a date-pointer and the extra big moon phase indication.
Moving on to the timepieces’ case, the decision can be made between a stainless steel or a rose PVD case with anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The see-through sapphire back allows the watch- owner to see the beautifully decorated movement. ‘EPOS 3440 Big Moon’ is water resistant up to 50 meters, has a diameter of 42 millimeters and a thickness of 11 millimeters. The available black or brown colored leather straps fit nicely with the overall appearance of the watch.
With the extension of the ‘EPOS Oeuvre d’art’ collection, the Swiss watch manufacturer presents an in-house developed high-quality mechanical watch with several sophisticated complications that has a great appeal to watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
