This Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch Has A Meteorite Stone Dial

It’s all well and good to show off a luxurious timepiece with diamonds, rubies and whatever other precious stones are out there, but it’s a whole different thing to wear a watch that includes a meteorite in its construction. This very special version of the Master Calendar watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre features a dial that was made out of a thin and carefully finished piece of iron meteorite discovered in Sweden.

The meteorite piece hails from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, and it comes in two different versions: a light one and a dark one. The case of the watch measures 39mm and is made out of lavish 18k pink gold or stainless steel. Two sapphire crystals protect the piece at the front and at the back, while the movement that animates the dials, triple calendar and date pointer is a Calibre 866.
This exclusive, elegant and luxurious timepiece will be unveiled officially during the next Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie event in Geneva, Switzerland.
