Dubai, UAE, June 15, 2017:  Louis Moinet presents a stellar surprise that's literally out of this world, with their Stardance moonphase watch. This shining example of Louis Moinet's ethereal creativity, boasts of a moon that is made of a piece of a meteorite that originated from the orbit of Mercury! Truly a unique piece for the unique occasion!

The Stardance is unique through and through, with a Moon made from an authentic fragment of the Enstatite EH3 meteorite. Its brilliance is anything but fortuitous: it comes from nanodiamonds, formed by stellar collisions that most probably took place before our solar system was formed. The Stardance dates – literally – from the dawn of time.

When Louis Moinet designed the Stardance, the goal was to produce something beautiful, genuine and authentic – as well as unique and lyrical. And these lofty aspirations had to be confined within a diameter of just 36 mm.

The lunar disc is housed behind an aventurine window, delicately etched out in the form of a cloud. Opposite this opening at 12 o'clock is a second's disc at 6 o'clock in the form of a sun, lighting up a dial featuring the Côtes du Jura pattern, also unique to Louis Moinet. 

This dazzling pattern nestles beneath a diamond-studded bezel, to which a jewelled case adds the finishing touch.

The Enstatite EH3 meteorite has its origins in the orbit around Mercury, the smallest planet in our solar system. Estimated to have formed 4.5 billion years ago as a result of cosmic collisions pre-dating the formation of the current solar system, the meteorite reached earth after travelling millions of kilometers. Only 365 Stardance timepieces will be made – one for each day of the year spent loving your mother.

FEATURES

Night is evoked by the dazzling moon phase indicator at 12 o'clock, created from a finely-crafted fragment of the rare Enstatite EH3 meteorite containing interstellar diamonds
