The real star of the Bovet Sportster Saguaro Meteorite is the cacti the watch is named after! No, actually it is handsome meteorite dial. You can find both a Saguaro cactus and a meteorite in a desert though. As for the cactus, the Saguaro species are the most famous of cacti with their iconic shape - being able to grow very high. Living in Arizona for a while I got spend lots of time admiring these plants. More things need to be named after them! Meteorite stones, while falling all over the world, are mostly found in the desert for some reason. These are actually Gibeon meteorites, not from Arizona. There is an extreme romance to the idea that an extraterrestrial stone is cut, and sliver is polished for the dial of your watch. It is luxurious, and really makes you wonder about where this piece of your watch has been. Both versions of the watch feature meteorite dials. The gold dial is planted in gold, while the black dial is a clean polished iron meteorite plate. The red luminova looks good on the black dial right?
This is the newest watch from favorite New Zealand watch maker Magrette. I love the retro styling of the dial, and the value price makes this watch a bit too desirable to pass up. Also, you'll love the little details that Magrette puts into this watch that make it so unique. Start with the dial of the new Moana Pacific to see the smooth retro looks. The name of the watch is applied in a cursive text right over the base model name which is the Regattare. The hour markers have all been thinned out a bit for the look on this dial. The hands have been reworked a bit more solid looking and thinner with a needle style seconds hand. The case is smooth and functional with a high quality polish on high-grade steel. This is one of the most handsome styled watch cases out there today.
Though I often question Kimora's fashion choices, her promotion of the Hello Kitty brand indicates that she's on to so much more. Like it or not, she's going to be around for a long time.
