Louis Moinet Unveils Four Solar System-Inspired Tourbillon Watches, Each with its Own Genuine Meteorite
Four Watches Unite to Complete One-of-a-kind Planetarium Display, Creating Pièce de résistance for Ultimate Watch Collector.
[...]
The Meteoris Tourbillon Mars proudly displays the first stone from Mars ever used in watch making. That stone is finely inlaid into a hand-engraved dial and adorned with an astrolabe-type appliqué. The case is crafted from 18-carat white gold set with 56 baguette-cut Top Wesselton VVS diamonds totaling 3.46 carats. This meteorite was discovered in the Sultanate of Oman in 2008, and has been authenticated by the Russian Academy of Science, Moscow.

The Meteoris Tourbillon Rosetta Stone features the meteorite by the same name which is believed to be the oldest known rock in the solar system and the oldest meteorite ever found on earth, with an estimated age of 4,566,200,000 years. The extraordinary case is crafted in 18-carat rose gold and comprises 50 different parts. This meteorite was found in Sahara in 1999, and has been authenticated by the Institute für Planetology, Münster, Germany.

The meteorite adorning the hand-engraved dial of the Meteoris Tourbillon Asteroid comes from Itqiy, a mysterious asteroid that was formed near the sun. Itqiy has provided invaluable scientific information on the formation of the solar system, while its own formation remains a mystery. The “Asteroid” is housed in an 18-carat white gold case set with baguette-cut diamonds and engraved with the legend “Pièce Unique”. Itqiy was discovered in the Western Sahara in 1990, and has been authenticated by the University of Arizona, Tucson.

The first tourbillon to display an authentic lunar meteorite, the Meteoris Tourbillon Moon is distinguished by its dark structure featuring a number of fine occlusions and its 18-carat rose gold case. This meteorite was discovered in the Sultanate of Oman, in 2001 and has been authenticated by UCLA, University of California, Los Angeles.

The Pièce de résistance for watch collectors may be the artist-commissioned Meteoris mechanical planetarium display, which depicts the entire solar system. Mercury, Venus, the Earth, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all shown gravitating around the Sun. This work of art represents a major technical feat, since the vast majority of planetariums show a limited number of planets.

To provide a better understanding of the solar system, the mechanical Meteoris display accelerates rotation speed, enabling the Earth to rotate around the Sun in 37 seconds instead of the usual 365 days. The display’s finely fashioned dial indicates the position of each planet within the zodiac sign through which it is crossing. The midnight-blue lacquered dial is sprinkled with silver spangles. Each of the twelve constellations is adorned with gold dust and the 154 stars are represented by rhodiumed set with Top Wesselton VVS diamonds totaling 5.60 carats.

The complete Meteoris collection, including the four watches and planetarium display, is available now and is priced at $4.7 million.

Naja, ganz richtig ist das aber nicht, wenn die schreiben:

"The Meteoris Tourbillon Mars proudly displays the first stone from Mars ever used in watch making."

Es gab schon vor vielen Jahren eine Luxusuhr mit Zagami-Zifferblatt.
Diese Corum hier mit einer Auflage von 38 Stück:
