Our two latest creations, Acasta and Dhofar, give wearers their very own fragment of space – a piece of eternity – on their wrist.” Take a piece of moon rock, one of the rarest in the universe. Only a hundred or so lunar meteorites have ever been found. This one is called Dhofar 457, named after the southernmost region of the Sultanate of Oman, on the border with Yemen.
