The Moonlight

The Moonlight - A Watchmaking Revolution

Quinting continues to WOW the watchmaking community with firsts: the first and only transparent watch, the first and only watch with a sapphire movement, the first and only watch with counterbalancing forces.

In 2011, Quinting releases another first: The Moonlight.

Moonlight watch

Quinting created a movement exclusively for this watch, the only "true" moon phase watch. It is the first in the world where the moon revolves around the earth, accurately showing its phases. Meanwhile, every hour a comet shoots around the earth and the moon, always ready to be wished upon.

8 Layers of Sapphire
This high watchmaking complication is made of 8 layers of sapphire with anti-reflective coating. One is rotating at the speed of the hour, another one at the speed of the minute and the last one at the speed of the Moon phase.


360 Unique Watches
This limited edition is composed of 360 pieces, representing the 360 degrees of the earth. They are unique works of art painted by hand with enamel. Each piece will have a different view of the earth, based on a specific longitude. The customer chooses on which city, symbolized by a ruby crimped into the sapphire, he wants to center the Earth.
