    Gentleman's Muoionalusta Meteorite Wristwatch
    Iron, IVA
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
    Found: 1906

    Muonionalusta Meteorites are often found in jewelry applications, and it is easy to see why as the Widmanstätten pattern pops off this iron meteorite in a most delightful way. This watch has been handcrafted in Europe and features the iconic crisscrossing bands diagnostic of this meteorite on the dial, bezel, case and lugs. To create this amazing watch, the case was milled from a SOLID piece of meteorite. This technique is seen in high-end watch making. The unique meteorite case measures 37.5 mm (1.47 inches) with a stainless steel crown. This particular watch has black accented pencil-shaped hands, along with a spade shaped seconds hand behind a clear crystal glass. There is a diamond at the 12 o'clock hour, and the movement is Miyota 8215 Japanese Quartz. The strap was handmade in Germany by Di-Modell and was crafted out of black ostrich and finished with a stainless steel tang and buckle. Overall, the timepiece is in excellent condition and makes a perfect statement piece.
    Overall Measurements: 9.45 x 1.65 x 0.33 inches (24.00 x 4.20 x 0.85 cm)
