Thread: New JLC meteorite dial

  1. #1

    New JLC meteorite dial

    We already knew the Speedmaster Meteorite dial, but it seems that now, it's JLC turn.

    Honestly, I haven't a definitive opinion and I'm pretty sure I can't afford it, anyway...

    Meh...but then again I am not a huge fan of anthracite (colored) dials.



    EDIT: I know it is a mockup, but is it me or is "12" off center?

    I would probably go with the ss version, though

    The "12" is still off!




    EDIT: That said the dial, numeral/marker combo is better than above.

    Ooops! You may have a point. Not sure if it's not the date (red "31")...or maybe the angle?

    It would be great to have when you come across a flashy guy with a diamond covered Rolex. If I had this JLC meteorite dial I would be like "nice diamonds, where you get them, on Earth?"

    I'm not a fan, I don't think it fits well with the understated aesthetic that is typical of a dressier JLC.
