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

    This watch is a real show stopper and features a classic and elegant design with the center piece being a slice of the famous Swedish meteorite: Muonionalusta. The Muonionalusta Meteorite face featured here showcases the beautiful and intriguing otherworldly Widmanstätten pattern behind clear crystal. This pleasing "crisscross" pattern is diagnostic of the meteorite and creates an aesthetic appearance. The round case is stainless steel and measures 50 mm (1.96 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 spade hour and sword minute hands. The wristwatch is self-winding, with mechanical movement which is additionally visible through an exhibition case back. The strap is a traditional and versatile brown leather band with a stainless steel tang and buckle. The watch is in pristine condition, is water-resistant to 30 meters (3ATM) and comes with a label attesting to its authenticity. This luxury accessory will be a key component of any Gentleman's outfit.
    Overall Measurements: 9.84 x 1.97 x 0.43 inches (25.00 x 5.00 x 1.08 cm)
