Just Where do those Rolex Meteorite Dials Come From?

Reported by Captain J. E. Alexander in 1838, the Gibeon Meteorite is one of the most important meteorites in the world. An iron meteorite with significant quantities of nickel, cobalt, and phosphorous, Gibeon fell in prehistoric times, shattering in the atmosphere and scattering upwards of 26,000 kilograms, or about 28 tons, of interstellar metal along the east side of what is today the Great Fish River in Great Namaqualand, Namibia, Africa. A class IVA meteorite, the Gibeon features the Widmanstätten pattern, long fingers of iron-nickel composition that run through the meteorite in long, straight ribbons. Though this historical deposit is now protected by Namibian law, Rolex has procured some of most aesthetically pleasing shards of the Gibeon for the manufacture of watch faces that are quite literally out-of-this world. Rolex meteorite dials are simply incomparable.

 

When silver, gold, platinum, and other rare metals simply don’t have enough character, the next step up is for you to consider metal whose current shape and pattern dates back to the formation of the solar system itself. Featuring an acid-washed clock face manufactured from a solid piece of the Gibeon Meteorite, a meteorite and gold Rolex watch still carries within it that primal swirl of creation, leading to an absolutely magnificent piece that is to standard metal deposits what burl wood is to a standard plank of pine. A meteorite and gold Rolex is sure to be of the greatest, if not the greatest, pieces with a historical pedigree in your, or any, jewelry collection.
