    Watches with unique dial materials?

    I am not sure what majority of dials today's watches are made of, but would you guys post watches with dials made from something entirely different?
    Carbon Fiber?
    Solid gold?
    Sterling Silver?
    Marble?
    Pearl?

    Thread is worthless without pics :D

    As far as I know, silver is a fairly common material for higher end dials that have fancy engraving.

    Also, for carbon fiber - check the banner ad at the top for Xetum.

    A few watches have used a meteorite face, such as the Rolex Daytona, looks phenomenal and is one of my all time favorites

    I don't have any photos at present, but I recall seeing a pocket watch in an antique store with a galalith dial. It had crazed in concentric circles and looked almost like ivory.

    Rado has used Tigereye, Lapis Lazuli, Onyx, Ammolite, and other minerals, Goldstone, meteorite, lava rock, wood and various shells. Louis Rossel has used acid washed silicum.
