The only fragment from the Wabar meteorite outisde of a museum belongs to Louis Moinet and was used to craft the dial.

Two pieces (59,4 kg + 62 kg) were acquired in 1885 and 1893 by the British Museum. A few fragments were proposed and this is how Louis Moinet can proudly present this unique and prestigious Meteorite.
