    Muonionalusta Meteorite Wristwatch
    Iron, IVA
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
    Found: 1906
    9.45 x 1.54 x 0.31 inches (24.00 x 3.92 x 0.80 cm)


    This stunning unisex accessory is truly something to behold. The dial on this watch has been hewn out of Muonionalusta Meteorite. This iconic iron meteorite, when cut and polished, displays the most beautiful cross-hatched design known as the Widmanstätten pattern. The bright, Rhodium plated, meteorite watch face is protected behind a clear crystal glass in a stainless steel case measuring 34 mm (1.33 inches) and finished with stainless steel lugs and crown. The bezel is a darker silver with spherical markings at every hour for easy timekeeping with Quartz movement. The hour and minute hands are pencil-shaped with illumination marks for convenience and finished with a classic seconds hand. The strap is a classic black leather with stainless steel tang and buckle. The back of the case is marked with "Meteorite Muonionalusta" to attest to its authenticity and is water-resistant to 30 meters (3ATM). This is a great gift for anyone worthy of an "out of this world" timepiece.
