Product Details

Nearly one million years ago a large planetary body was careening towards Earth at an extreme rate of speed. Impact occurred in what is now Northern Scandinavia, and the resulting meteorite was first discovered in 1906 in a small town on the Muonio River in extreme northern Sweden.

Known as the Muonionalusta meteorite, it is the oldest meteorite ever discovered and renowned for its exceptional Widmanstten pattern.

This pattern is found exclusively in octahedrite iron meteorites, and creates a interwoven crystalline pattern formed when overlapping bands of metal cool at super-slow speeds (the process takes millions of years).

The presence of this pattern provides proof that the material in question is of extraterrestrial origin, and it is the same pattern that you will find featured on the Meteorit from Thomas Ninchritz.

The Meteorit is a watch that is perfectly well suited for everyday wear and an excellent conversation piece. The polished case and silver hands ensure that it will look great with formal, business or casual attire and the applied silver indices create a sense of added depth and dimension that accentuate the dial in a way that must be seen to truly appreciate.

This watch features a power reserve of 46 hours when fully wound.

Case is in stainless steel and is polished by hand. Black calf leather strap which is attached by screws and features an engraved tang buckle.

Additional features include:

  • Traditional Glashutte German 3/4 plate
  • Swan neck fine adjustment
  • Screwed gold chatons
  • Unique Cotes de Geneve pattern
  • Perlage on inner plates
  • Blued screws
  • Hand engraved balance cock
  • Movement is rhodium plated

The result is quite unique and striking.

Verified Owner Comments: I have been looking for a watch with a meteorite dial, and this one is perfect, no complications to distract from the dial. I also like the traditional German finish of the gears visible through the back.
