A fisherman first discovered the stone in the mid 1960s.

Watchmakers are known for their moonphase complications, and one of the most popular complications is the Arceau L'heure de la lune by Hermès, a beguiling example of horological ingenuity that's sure to captivate the senses.

Like the original Arceau L'heure de la lune watch that was introduced in 2019, the new limited edition of the Arceau L'heure de la lune watch features a slice of New York meteorite that was discovered and first sold in 1965 by the captain of the boat before falling into darkness. It is the same piece that was discovered by a fishing boat in 1965 and first sold by the captain of the boat. Luc Labenne, a meteorite hunter, acquired the 2.95 kg meteorite from the son of the man who purchased it in 1965. She later acquired it from Hermès in 2008.

According to Philippe Delhotal, Hermès Horloger's artistic director, the watch represents a journey through the cosmos. "This watch hints about the existence of another space-time, a deeper interlude and it was essential to create this feeling of the cosmos."

There is no doubt that the moonphase module is equally impressive. In conjunction with Jean-François Mojon, the technical specialist who heads Chronode SA, a Swiss-based movement maker based in Le Locle, Switzerland, the model features two subdials that revolve around two moons in the northern and southern hemispheres, respectively. The moon at 12 o'clock is adorned with an ethereal Pegasus designed by the "dreamer-designer" Dimitri Rybaltchenko, while the moon at 6 o'clock represents its rugged, rocky, rocky nature.

There has been a long collaboration between Hermès and the artist Dimitri Rybaltchenko, ranging from silk scarves to furniture, according to Delhotal. As a result of this, he has designed a number of Hermès creations, including the Pegasus. We enjoy incorporating bridges into our creations because they are a meaningful motif and they have a very significant connection to the moon. There is a playful touch to this so anyone can keep dreaming of what he can see on the moon as long as he can see it. The Maison understands Mr. Rybaltchenko's philosophy as well as the passion that we have for creating unique objects that reflect our philosophy."

As a result of its 43 mm case, the watch boasts a self-winding mechanical Hermès Manufacture H1837 movement inside. It is available in a limited edition of only 16 pieces, retailing for $69,950, and is available for a limited time only.

Hermès, the French luxury brand, has recently launched a new version of their Arceau L'heure de la Lune watch with a dial made of New York meteorite. This luxury timepiece has been crafted using a unique technique that combines both traditional watchmaking and craftsmanship of meteorite dials. The new Hermès Arceau L'heure de la Lune is a masterpiece that is not only visually striking but is also one of the most unique watches to hit the market. The dial is crafted from a rare slice of Gibeon meteorite that fell to earth about 4.5 billion years ago. This material is known for its unique patterns and is highly sought after in the world of horology.

This latest creation from Hermès features a moon phase complication that is displayed on two subdials, which rotate over the meteorite dial. The watch is powered by a mechanical movement and has a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The case is made from white gold and has a diameter of 43mm. The watch is also water-resistant up to 30 meters. Overall, the Hermès Arceau L'heure de la Lune is a unique timepiece that is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality and craftsmanship. If you are looking for a luxury watch that is both unique and visually stunning, this is one you should definitely consider.
