Auguste Reymond Orbital Moon Swiss Watch

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-10-31

Introducing the Auguste Reymond Orbital Moon Swiss Watch collection. Combining luxury materials and a stunning concept, this watch is sure to stand out on your wrist. The Orbital Moon does more than just tell you the time and date. In addition, it also has the Orbital Moon module. Patented by the brand, it shows the moon index revolving around and orbiting the Earth index. With this, you can see the current phase of the moon with just a glance. While beautiful, it’s also highly useful for those that rely on the moon, such as lovers of fishing. Paired with this beauty are top materials. The case is a durable stainless steel while solid sapphire scratchproof crystal protects the dial. Water resistant up to 80 meters, the Orbital Moon Watch comes in your choice of a blue, black, or silver dial.

Hi Nicholas, yes, it's butterfly steel clasp
Nicholas Lye
Hey AR, I have changed my pledge to the steel bracelet. :) Just wanting to confirm the clasp is stainless steel as well? Cheers.
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Hi Alexander, yes, just note in the survey, what you wish, you will get it. Don't forget to elaborate, how to assemble - watch with metal bracelet or extra
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Hi Nick, what is actually possible to do. We don't have this model in own stock, but we sent a request to our russian distributor. We will know tomorrow, what they have.
A.l.e.x.a.n.d.e.r.
Hi Creator,
I am very pleased that this time you have succeeded your goal.
And I am looking forward to get my second watch from you guys.
I have seen it too late, but can I still get the steel band added (110 CHF) or will we be able to get this still when we have to fill in the survey? Alexander

Hi AR. While waiting for delivery of the Orbital Moon, I was wondering if you have any stock left of this watch which I am hoping to purchase but does not seem to be in your online store: Charleston Gent Automatic (Silver) M-69B170-56k I am hoping that your distributor might have some left. Thanks!
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Hello Alex, thank you!
It must be something easy for all. Temporally a code is simple KS1 or KS2, for example, before to order just send a message like "I'm AR Club member, code KS1, please, send me my option for next models: .... and ref.numbers of what you would like"
Probably in reward survey we will ask for e-mails and make a list of 1st members, and next will make private profile for every member with account, credit etc.
Would be good to know an opinion of others, how is better to organize it technically, to make it comfortable for all.
Alex Nayeri
Hello and congratulations on a successful campaign. I'm also happy to know I'm eligible to become a member of the AR club. I would like to learn how to enroll and become a member? Do I need a code? or, does your on-line store recognize the supporters of this campaign as members eligible?
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Jeff, thank you!
i'm sure it's not last your exception with AR watches. When you touch real watch Orbital Moon, it will begin.... :-)
Jeff Low
Congratulations on this successful campaign, AR! And all the best for the next campaign on Indiegogo! While my usual choice of watch tends to be a heritage Swiss automatic, I'm happy to make an exception for a quartz moonphase by a Swiss watchmaking house. And it's a delightful bonus that it's a refreshing patented design! I can imagine it must be exciting for the team at AR too!
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Shinji, no doubts, just have a pleasure with foretasting. I took all versions from previous edition to my collection, because was not able to select. On my taste, by visual effect this serie is the most impressive among all Auguste Reymond production, despite the quartz movement.
Shinji
Congratulations creator! I must say I am really hyped for the watch! Now I'm just praying that it will look as good in real life as in the images and videos :)
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Congratulations, dear friends!
We did it together! Thank you all very much! We wish you a pleasant stay ahead of the meeting with your watch! In fact, this watch is much more impressive than all of our videos or photos.
Let me open the 1st Assembly of the Auguste Raymond Club :-)
Nick, you can use all your privileges right after opening an online store. We changed the opening dates several times, the guys from the IT company are not as good as our watchmakers :-)
We hope to start this week.
Mark, yes, we plan to offer straps and clasps in the online store, but in any case, you can ask just by e-mail, if necessary, before we put it in the store.
Actually we go ahead with production of 3 design variatoins, but it's some chance to enlarge a range of color combinations, if we collect enough pre-orders in our campaign on Indiegogo, that we plan to launch in next week.
Nick C
Hi AR! Congratulations with this project! Can't wait to receive my Orbital Moon watch in February. However, there is another watch I am also interested in at the moment and it is in your online store. When can I receive my free membership to the Auguste Reymond Club so that I can use it to purchase another AR watch as a Christmas gift? Is there any chance of receiving that earlier than the watch? Thanks!
Jeff Low
Final stretch! Whee!!! I don't think I have ever been that excited over a watch campaign amidst the countless watches on offer here on Kickstarter! Quality design and parts with a silent but splendid elegance. Can't wait to receive the watch! ❤️
Marc DeLeon
Will the buckle be purchasable after the campaign in your website in the future? In case I wasn’t to change out the strap and not cut the original one?
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Bugger, your choice of Magellan A44 GMT is good example, that sometimes it's not easy to buy something :-) In view of crazy cost of this kind of movement we have produced only 70 watches for special order, and actually we have available one or two watches in demo collection, and maybe we could ask our distributor to send back few models, if they have not sold.
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Marc, yes, all AR watches are equipped with butterfly clasp with AR coat of arms, as you can see it on the video. We do not use standard buckles,sorry for not clear termins, it's just inertion in using between non-english speaking colleagues :-)
Marc DeLeon
Do all the watches come with a butterfly clasp or is that an additional cost? If so, how much do I can add it on. Thank you kindly.
Bugger The Banks
Creator, sorry: just realised there are several versions bearing the Magellan name: I was referring to the A44 GMT Automatic.
Bugger The Banks
I have to say I am VERY excited to be a part of this campaign. I have backed a few watch campaigns here on KickStarter, but this is the one I am most excited about. Whilst other KickStarter watches maybe innovative (the Nixie watch), unusual (the Xeric Evergraph) or eye-catching (Filippo Loreti), this simply oozes class! Like Fireman, I'm torn between the blue (my favourite colour) & the silver, but am currently leaning towards the silver as I think it accentuates the other colours & creates more contrast. Creator, I've also had a look at your website & was rather taken with the Magellan: I take it that model is (sadly) no longer available?
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Ma, you can click the green button "manage your pledge" in top right corner of your pledge page. next you will see option to change your pledge, click and next you will see all rewards, you can select reward with bracelet to upgrade your actual pledge
Ma Hai Chang
Just add 110 CHF into pledge amount,right?
CB
There is an extra pledge option with the braclet for 685 Fr ;)
Ma Hai Chang
How to pay for steel bracelet?
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Christian, the Blue and Silver models have dark blue strap, the Black model has accordingly black
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
CB, the bracelet is equipped with butterfly clusp with pushers and AR emblem like on the leather strap clasp, the rose gold color of 2 stripes is the same as rose gold elements on the case
Christian Koch
Hey there, I can't seem to be able to find the default straps for any of the watches. To clarify; what colour of leather strap does the watches have, if I choose not to buy an additional strap? For example, I've chosen the silver model, but this is depicted with both black, brown and blue leather straps in the photo/videos.
CB
Hey AR! thanks for the fast answer.. didn't meant to argue about differences. I was just curious what you as a professional watchmaker know and would say about the different mechanics, movements and the whole production!
And 2 other questions about the braclet.. which buckle or closing mechanism do you use? (In the video you only see the braclet) and is the gold color on the bracelet the same as the one on the watch (dail and interior?)
Best regards, cb
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Fireman, you can select the model on steel bracelet and add an extra cost of strap and buckle, when you upgrade your pledge. No chance to make choice, when you have received one of them, you will ask for another one to have both :-) I'm not kidding, both blue and silver look crazy in real.
Fireman EMT
I dont know about many of the other pledges i am still torn between the blue and silver. :(
Fireman EMT
Is it possible to pledge for stainless steel strap and still get the leather? Would you consider offering both with a watch?
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Hi Gregory, on a page of your pledge you can see green button "manage your pledge" in right top corner. Click it and you will see an option to change your pledge, click and select any reward you like
Gregory Leonov
Hello! Please tell me how can I choose steel bracelet instead of leather strap? Is it more expensive?
Marc DeLeon
One thing I’ve never understood is those unable to perceive the difference between a quiet superior elegance and a loud inferior base standard. I mean, you’ll hardly see one comparing a Mazda Miata to a Porsche 911, for you car guys out there.
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
CB, I supported FL because i like that guys very much and I like what they do (professional solidarity), but not because their watches:-) The difference you asked is in quality of components and in origin of production. Components - just one solid sapphire crystal with double antireflective coating costs PROBABLY more than complete FL case. An Orbital moon Q movement costs much more than japanese automatic movement, a cost proportion of hands is 4:1. Origin - you know, who makes AR watches- hand made by AR in Switzerland, top quality. If you let me know, who and where produce FL, then i would be able to give professional opinion about price difference between countries. As you see in FL timetable, they plan to receive watches from their suppliers from somewhere. Not clear. Anyway, when you buy very nice FL watch for 150 euro, are you really care about quality? Frankly, you will see a difference between AR and FL, when you get real watches and touch with you hands. But it's impossible to compare with photo or video. Maybe it would be more correct to compare FL with similar products with japanese movements. It's easy to find in internet prices for Casio, Seiko, Citizen, or any brands, who use similar movements like FL, and try the same comparison between quartz complications of Swiss brands like Longines, Raymond Weil, Tag Heuer, Frederique Constant and Auguste Reymond
CB
Hi guys, I was wondering since you are supporting/backing filippo loreti on kickstarter now: where is the difference in quality between your Quartz watch priced at 500€ and their watch with a price of 150€? What makes your watch more valuable and therefore 350€ more expensive? And why are they able to offer an automatic version for 350€? CB ;)
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Nicholas, sure, if you mean steel bracelet, you will recieve the watch with blue ring. It's just demo version on the vidoe
Nicholas Lye
Congratulations on hitting the goal. The watch looks fantastic & I have made a pledge for the Early Bird - Silver reward. I am however, tempted to upgrade to the steel buckle but was just wondering if the silver edition would still come with a blue ring as pictured on the original design. Cheers. �
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Alexander,Jeff, yes, correct, extra cost is 35 or 53
Jeff Low
Hi Alexander, Think you can find the add on costs towards the bottom of the campaign details page. They are in the captions under the photos of the straps and buckle. Leather strap without buckle - CHF 35
Buckle - CHF 53 I’ll let them make a correction if I’m wrong!
A.l.e.x.a.n.d.e.r.
I would like to have the two straps (leather & steel). Is that possible?
If yes how much do I need to add to my pledge.
Jeff Low
Amazing! I’ve switched my pledge to the bracelet option. Hope to pair it with the blue dial! Oh, a suggestion, you might want to post this as a special update. Not everyone follows the comments here and you might get more people who might like to opt for this option!
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
Marc, it will be an additional fee, actually it's in HQ for accounting. It can be any text within space limit for a quantity of letters
Marc DeLeon
I saw the engraving photos, is it included or will it be an additional fee? Furthermore, I assume we’ll be honoring the backer number for the campaign or backer number for the model type pledged? Example: I’m backer number #15 out of the campaign or #4 for the silver orbital.
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
CB, Jeff, Ulala and everybody, finally we made it! Please, have a look below photos a video HD of the watch with steel bracelet. We added 2 limited rewards for one and two watches
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
CB, we'll prepare a post, we wait for a video with the bracelet, just few days. Regarding engraving need also few days.
CB
Yeah looks pretty cool for me! But i`m only one of around 60 voices with probably different opinions on that take! Maybe you could post an update about the engraving options, (if ready) the bracelet and some behind the scenes stuff! With this, you could reach every backer at once and get probably more opinions and views! :)
Auguste Reymond S.A. Switzerland
CB, please, have a look at the back photo, located below the timetable, that's technically possible location of an individual engraving. If it's OK, i'll ask HQ to calculate extra cost
Jeff Low
I'm too an admirer of automatic complications of Swiss heritage. Would love to have a chance to own a beautiful Swiss automatic timepiece by AR if the price is within my budget!
