For your consideration today, a rare & beautiful discontinued Martin Braun Selene Meteorite dial
This is the dressier 42mm version, with the MB-signed onion crown and clous de Paris case and exhibition caseback.
Originally purchased from Austin's Martin Braun USA in 2010, this places this stunning piece
after Martin Braun became part of Franck Muller Watchland in 2006.
Even though the Martin Braun company is no longer in business, Franck Muller will still service this watch.
This automatic astronomical watch features a photorealistic moonphase indicator;
thanks to the large, 600 dpi resolution glass-printed moon face, it is exactly as the celestial body appears to the naked eye.
settable to the minute, the display will only deviate by one day after 122.5 years!
Each piece in this very limited edition is unique, thanks to its dial made from a slice of meteorite material taken from a Namibian meteorite find.
This stunning piece is fresh from a USD $1000 complete overhaul by Franck Muller, ready to provide years of solid, worry-free enjoyment to its next owner.
All functions operate as they should, and the watch keeps good time. Absolutely nothing to do! Case condition is as expected after a complete service,
with only the slightest swirls barely visible to the naked eye.
The watch come on an aftermarket strap and original MB buckle, with the original MB strap also included; both straps broken in.
