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

    This unique timepiece is truly in a class by itself. The large dial features the iconic Widmanstätten so prominent in the Muonionalusta Meteorite. The dial presents the stunning cross-hatched pattern as the backdrop for a functioning and stylish time-piece. The dial measures 43 x 14.1 mm (1.69 x 0.55 inches) and is encased in a stainless steel case with a Gold-plated ribbed bezel on the front and the back with stainless steel lugs and crown. This watch is self-winding with mechanical movement, which powers the blue steeled skeletonized luminous sword hour and minute hands. The dial has black Roman Numerals for the hour marks and black stick indicators for the minute markers. There are two subsidiary dials: a moon phase aperture and a 24-hour time at 3'clock and a subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o'clock with a visible mechanical window. Each sub-dial has red and black marks, while the moon phase has red and black hands, the seconds dial has a blue hand. The back of the case features an exhibition window. The black strap is made of genuine leather and features a silver buckle and tang. This watch is water resistant up to 3ATM. It is in excellent condition and comes with a label attesting to its authenticity. This is the perfect timepiece for any occasion.
    Overall Measurements: 9.45 x 1.97 x 0.56 inches (24.00 x 5.00 x 1.41 cm)
