A follow up to the Grey Side Of The Moon, the “Meteorite” borrows only the original’s grey ceramic, ditching the sand-blasted platinum dial meant to romantically mirror the Moon’s surface, for one that actually orbited our planet before crash landing into it.
Meteorite dials seem to divide opinion. They are the marmite of the watch. Love them or hate them, they have a way of transforming the look of a watch. Many have experimented with such dials in recent memory – including OMEGA, who released the Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz a few years ago. Since then Jaeger-LeCoultre, Zenith, and Jaquet Droz have all released with meteorite dials, triggering a quick response from OMEGA, who may feel their self-proclaimed monopoly on space was being infringed (the Apollo-Soyuz Speedmaster, which had a meteorite dial, is no longer in production).
