    Gibeon Meteorite Pocket Watch
    Iron, Fine Octahedrite - IVA
    Great Namaqualand, Namibia (25° 30'S, 18° 0'E)

    This pocket watch is a throwback to a simpler time, featuring a sleek modern and contemporary appearance. The dial was crafted out of material from the world famous Gibeon Meteorite. This impressive watch showcases the Gibeon's intricate Widmanstätten pattern with bold black Arabic numbers on the watch face creating a lovely contrast. Time is kept by elegant black hour, minute and sweeping second hands behind a clear Quartz crystal. It has a standard open face with the stem placed at the 12:00 position, and the crown is pulled out to wind the watch. The fastener is attached to a silver chain connected to the stationary bow. There are a few subtle scratches on the case back, but, otherwise, this watch is in excellent condition. This pocket watch makes a statement that less is more.
    Overall Measurements: 2.36 x 1.69 x 0.32 inches (6.00 x 4.30 x 0.82 cm)
