TC-9 LunarScope

"TC-9 has raised their game. Now, don't get me wrong; I've liked their previous models, particularly the 1972 Bronze Diver I reviewed earlier this year. It's just that with the LunarScope Mechanical Chronograph, the company has taken a step away from their familiar tool watch themes and created something different, nuanced, and utterly charming.

The LunarScope didn't get its name from any moon-spotting capabilities, but rather from the H.G. Wells novel, "The First Men in the Moon." It answers the question, "What would an Omega Speedmaster moon watch look like if designed in 1900? It is not a question I have ever asked, but it certainly a fun launch pad for a design concept. I'm pleased to see that they steered clear of any steampunk clichés and instead landed on a tasteful, old-world, instrument aesthetic."
