Does anyone have any more photos of watches with meteorite dials? It is interesting how unique these can be.

Meteorite Bob, that watch is the grail of all grails IMO and thanks for the picks! You are one lucky guy to own own one.

Oh my gosh Mark. I'm just poor white trash around your collection. I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.



Awesome collection. I'd love to own a piece of space too. They're incredible.

At first I didn't like dial, but it really grew on me. I had to come back several times to make sure. Overall, what's not to like. Great watch. Enjoy.

I can't say I was a big Daytona fan initially but that meteorite face really is something. I'm definitely a convert. Great piece, wear it in good health.

Wow, Bob! What a beauty! Great pic's! The meteorite dial face is such a striking feature. And, the amazing detail found in the chrono dials that makes the Daytona the stunning hallmark, and, multi-function tool watch that it is, is simply a work of art! Well chosen. Enjoy and thanks for sharing the fun!
