DescriptionFine Muonionalusta Iron-Nickel Meteorite Wrist Watch
Iron fine octahedrite - IVA
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
This classic watch was made with a twist. The face is made from the Swedish Muonionalusta meteorite. This Iron-Nickel meteorite features the identifiable Widmanstätten crisscross pattern which has been Rhodium plated for protection and then encased by Quartz crystal. The dial measures 34 mm in diameter with rose gold Roman numerals popping off the metallic silver face. Additionally, the minute and second hands are also rose gold in color for consistency. The case is stainless steel, and the watch operates by an automatic or self-winding movement which is visible with the clear watch back. The silver case contrasts well against the jet black genuine leather. It is water resistant up to 3ATM and would dress up any business meeting. There are some "shopworn" scratches on the back; otherwise, this watch is in excellent condition. It is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Overall Measurements: 10.0 x 1.7 x 0.4 inches (25.4 x 4.3 x 1.0 cm)
