who makes a good modern triple calendar moonphase?

I'd like to get a triple calendar moonphase watch that is brand new. any recommendations on where to look? Ideally I'm looking for something that takes inspiration from the Rolex 6062.

JLC just announced a triple calendar chronograph that looks amazing IMO. At $14,500 in steel, I doubt you will find better for the money. Not sure when you can get your hands on one though.

Both good picks. Yes, it seems though JLC has a lock on the steel triple calendar market.

That JLC triple calendar chronograph is tempting.

Zenith also has a triple calendar moonphase chronograph for about half the JLC price.

Both are tempting.

And the new JLC is also competitively priced. It is a very good deal.
