METEOR SHOWER

India Today - - FETISH -

The new Moon­watch from Omega ac­tu­ally of­fers a me­te­orite dial made from a solid piece of ex­tra-ter­res­trial stone The se­crets of the uni­verse re­main a mystery; de­cod­ing it com­pletely may still be light years away, but you can at­tempt a sec­ond best by wear­ing a real piece of space on your wrist. This ex­cep­tional Moon­watch model, added to the Omega col­lec­tion, com­bines el­e­ments of ce­les­tial in­spi­ra­tions. The high­light of this watch is its in­cred­i­ble me­te­orite dial. In each time­piece, the dial has been made from a solid piece of ex­tra-ter­res­trial stone. Omega’s “me­te­orite dial” has been sourced from slices of the Gibeon me­te­orite that fell in pre­his­toric times in Namibia. The Wid­manstät­ten pat­tern, named af­ter the Aus­trian sci­en­tist who dis­cov­ered it, refers to the rib­bon-like flecks that are found in this kind of me­te­orite af­ter an acid etch. What makes this even more ex­clu­sive is that not only is the pat­tern clearly vis­i­ble, but it is unique to each model. With the Speed­mas­ter’s hoary con­nec­tion to space, this time­piece is a marvel­lous trib­ute to past col­lec­tions. Clearly, space isn’t the fi­nal fron­tier any more. Price on re­quest; Avail­able at brand bou­tiques across In­dia
