Notes: Roughly 4 billion years ago a meteoroid that was most likely formed as part of an exploding star or in the molten core of a doomed asteroid began its millennia-long journey towards earth. Three billion four hundred million later that meteoroid hits earths atmosphere over what we now call Nambia breaking into small pieces as it fell to the surface. 600 million years after that (give or take a few years) Rolex purchased some of the pieces from this ancient space fairing traveler and crafted them into some of the rarest and most certainly the oldest dials in existence.
