Louis Moinet Tourbillon Asteroid
Collectors with very deep pockets will love Louis Moinet's Meteoris Solar System, which is not only a mechanical planetarium representing the solar system but also an extraordinary showcase for four dazzling timepieces including the Tourbillon Asteroid, seen here.
The Tourbillon Asteroid's dial encompasses a handcrafted piece of the Itqiy meteorite, which fell in Western Sahara in 1990. In addition to 56 diamonds, it features an 18-karat white-gold case, visible main spring, and tourbillon escapement. You can pick it up with the entire Meteoris collection for a cool $4.9 million.
