The Besançon based company UTINAM, which is specialised in the manufacturing of extra ordinary mechanical clocks, is unveiling a wrist watch collection at Basel world 2015. Just twelve numbered, authenticated pieces: presenting the Météorite watch series, an exceptional model designed and developed by Philippe Lebru.
The fragment of a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite which has been cut, polished and machine finished to form a watch dial. The additional movement plate is manufactured in the Franche-Comté.
The dial displays a big date calendar at 12 o’clock and the hours and minutes of a dual time zone at 6 o’clock. This perfect combination of the infinitely large meteorite and the infinitely small watch mechanism forms a metaphor for relativity. Météorite heralds the production of a new range of self-winding mechanical watches.
