Gentlemens's Muonionalusta Meteorite Leather Wrist Watch
    Iron fine octahedrite - IVA
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)

    This watch is a real show stopper and could have been worn by any great iconic actor dating back to 1906, when the meteorite used to make this watch was first discovered in northern Scandinavia. The Muonionalusta meteorite face featured here has a gold metallic luster showcasing the beautiful and intriguing otherworldly Widmanstätten pattern. This pattern is the result of Nickel-Iron crystals that consist of a fine interleaving of Kamacite and Taenite bands called lamellae. The dial measures 36 mm in diameter and is Gold-plated, topped with a Quartz crystal plate. The case is made out of stainless steel and is engraved with Roman numerals for accurate time keeping. The minute and second hands are a striking blue color that contrasts handsomely with the gold face. The movement is hand winding mechanical with a clear back to gaze at the inner workings. This watch is up to 3ATM water resistant. The genuine leather band is an attractive reddish brown. This watch is in pristine condition and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Hands down this is an example of a fine luxury accessory for men that is out of this world.
    Overall Measurements: 10.0 x 1.9 x 0.4 inches (25.4 x 4.9 x 1.0 cm)
