For millennia, the moon has fascinated mankind, tamed oceans and guided explorers. Infused with this spirit, the Engineer Hydrocarbon Moon Navigator. Its moon phase module shines with exacting precision and the luminosity of micro gas tubes. The inner bezel displays the days of the week, while the outer bezel reveals the tides. Combined, they indicate high and low tides for a two-week period. As the Earth and moon’s gravitational pull endures, so too does the inescapable allure of exploration.
As the tides and moon are inextricably linked, the Moon Navigator features an aesthetic and functional moon phase module. Knowing that a full moon occurs around every 29.5 days, the indicator accurately displays each phase. It also gives more precision to tides forces, as high tides are higher and low tides lower during full or new moons. The moon phase is independent of the tidal indication and can be easily adjusted with the crown.
Backlit by an array of micro gas tubes and artfully decorated with shimmering stars, the moon phase shines bright in darkness – alongside gas tubes on the indices, hour and minute hands, And with the bezel featuring Super LumiNova, the Moon Navigator ensures time, tide and the moon are always visible.
TRACK THE TIDES. AT ALL TIMES.
The Moon Navigator allows the wearers to track the high and low tides during a period of 14 days. Using the specially engineered external bezel, rotate counterclockwise to set the day of the week on the inner ring, then turn clockwise to correctly position the corresponding tide markings on the bezel itself.
Ocean tides are caused by the combined gravitational forces exerted by the moon, sun and rotation of the Earth. Tidal force intensity depends on the distance between the moon and Earth – the force is stronger on the Earth’s side facing the Moon and weaker on the opposite side. Tides take around 12 hours to change from high to low and then back to high again, meaning they happen twice a day.
EXPLORE WITH INCOMPARABLE TOUGHNESS.
As part of the Engineer Hydrocarbon collection, the Moon Navigator features robust styling – highlighted by our patented crown protection system and the 42mm case.
