A professional tool-instrument designed to keep seasonal measurements. Powered by an automatic full calendar chronograph that offers the majority of what mechanical horology is capable of. This includes day, date, month, moonphase, average speed, 24-hour, and various chronograph counting features. These utilities are presented with elegance and practicality, making it a suitable tool-watch for casual, sporty and formal occasions. The movement was assembled to allow easy and efficient operation of the complications via the quick-set crown and the installed day-corrector on the left side of the case. The custom tachymeter and hand-plating options below allow customers to request the making of their own Mission Moon.
Functions include a minute-counter at the 12 o’clock sub-dial with two windows for the day and month. The date is indicated by the central moon-crescent hand that points to the 31-day calendar. An hour-counter sub-dial at 6 o’clock contains a moonphase window. The 24-hour sub-dial at 9 o’clock vests a sweep-second hand and an hour hand for standard-time, or it can be pre-set in a different time zone if a customer so desires. The tachymeter scale on the outer ring enables measurement of the average speed between two points. The sweeping chronograph hand at the center is operated by the two pushers on the case. A day-corrector on the left side of the case eases operation of the complication-set.

The Mission Moon was evolved from the original M250 Chronograph worn by NASA astronauts in outer space in 2000. The current MM250-2 shares the same style, fit and boldness as its predecessors while taking utilitarian intentions one step further. The Mission Moon is now on its second series of 100 individually numbered timepieces, with the MM250-1 retired back in 2018 and the MM250-2 introduced at the start of 2022. The series offers two dial color references - silver or back. Each timepiece is made-to-order with your selected tachymeter, hands, and strap.
