This is the world's first Ladies watch to feature my Blue Meteorite dial.
The Gibeon Meteorite was the first to prove that iron can fall from the sky. It was found in Namibia and samples were sent back to London by English captain J. E. Alexander in 1836. It was named after the nearest town: Gibeon, Namibia. Although it fell in prehistoric times, it is thought to be over four and a half billion years old. This has a beautiful crystal structure that cannot be duplicated by man because it requires millions of years of slow cooling in zero gravity. Older than any other antiquity that can be collected, enjoy wearing metal forged in space that is older than the earth itself!
