The ''Sun&Moon'' was the 4th Swatch-''The Club''-Special. This time everybody could buy it at the Swatch Stores, there was no lottery in Germany for this Special. The first day on that ''Sun&Moon'' was available in Germany, was August 11th 1999. On that day was in south Germany a Total Solar Eclipse. It was the first Total Solar Eclipse in Germany since 112 years and the next one in Germany will be in 2081, so this was for many people the only chance to see a Total Solar Eclipse, without travel. Unfurtuntately had many parts of West Europe during the noon (the Total Solar Eclipse was at approx. 12.30 CET) clouds and rain, so only a very small number of people had the luck to see the corona of the sun. ''Sun&Moon'' was the first Scuba-Club-Special. Each 12 hours (12a.m. and 12p.m.) you will see a Total Solar Eclipse on the face of ''Sun&Moon''.
Sun & Moon features a moving lunar disk on a midnight blue dial. Every 12 hours, the lunar disk eclipses a luminous sun set at 6 o'clock. The midnight blue strap shows the phases of a total eclipse of the sun, below the words Follow the Light. Sun & Moon was produced in a limited and numbered edition of 20,000 pieces and delivered in Special Packaging built in the image of a moon. Launched at a special event on the Monte da Lua (Mountain of the Moon) in Sintra, Portugal
