Moon Dials

Moon dials, also known as lunar dials or moon phase dials, have special features found on some clocks. These dials display the phases as it slowly progresses through its lunar cycle. The primary function of this dial is to show the current phase. This typically includes representations of the new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, and waning crescent. A specific symbol, or image, depicts each unique phase. They often feature decorative elements such as stars, clouds, or celestial motifs to enhance their aesthetic appeal and complement the overall design of the clock.
