DescriptionGentleman's Muonionalusta Meteorite Wristwatch
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
This incredible Gentleman's watch features a dial made of Muonionalusta Meteorite with its eye-catching "crisscross" Widmanstätten pattern. The fine octahedrite meteorite dial has been Rhodium-plated for stability and is visible beneath a clear Sapphire crystal. The round case is stainless steel and measures 49.3 mm (1.94 inches) featuring stainless steel lugs and crown. For convenient time keeping, the bezel displays black Roman numerals, and the face contains silver stick indicator markers representing minutes and hours with bright electric blued hour, minute and sweeping second hands. The wristwatch is self-winding, with mechanical movement which is visible from a small accent window on the dial and through an exhibition case back. This is a classic style wound by the motion of the wearer's arm. The strap is a time-honored and versatile brown leather band with a stainless steel tang and buckle. The watch is in pristine condition and water-resistant to 30 meters (3ATM). This luxury accessory will be one of the most elegant statement pieces in any Gentleman's wardrobe.
