Jaeger-LeCoultre Introduces Master Calendar Watch with Meteorite Stone Dial

Watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the Master Calendar watch with a meteorite sun dial.

The Master Calendar was first launched in 2012 with a silvered dial, but the new watches will be given meteorite dials.

The dial will be sliced from a single block of meteorite discovered and officially registered in Sweden.

The meteorite comes from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and because the content of the meteorite is high in iron, it is a difficult material to work with.

The meteorite creates intricate and beautiful patterns on the face of the dial.

While meteorite has been used in watches before (the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona comes in mind), it is still pretty rare to have a watch with a meteorite dial.

The watches will be available with stainless steel or 18k rose gold.

Rumors are that they will be priced at around $11,300 for the steel model and $24,300 for the rose gold one.
