The HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine offers a spectacular solid gold moon phase beautifully harmonising with a sparkling blue aventurine quartz dial and paired with an in-house Arnold & Son mechanical calibre.

The timepiece houses the exclusive Arnold & Son mechanical hand-wound calibre A&S1512 exclusively developed for the moon phases complication and equipped with a double barrel to yield a 90-hour power reserve. This movement supply a precision moon phase with one day deviation every 122 years and offers a unique easy-to-set feature thanks to the addition of a second moon phases indicator visible through the transparent case back.

In addition, the moon phase guilloché disc, running from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock, reveals a solid 18-karat red gold engraved moon. Faceted hours and minutes hands run along twelve golden indexes applied on the blue aventurine quartz dial.
The 42 mm diameter, 18-karat red gold case is sealed with an antireflection sapphire crystal and adorned with a hand-stitched alligator strap, fastened with an 18-karat red gold pin buckle.
