The Genuine Meteorite Watch
This is the watch constructed with a cross-section from a genuine nickel-iron meteorite that landed in the Gobi desert. Forming the watch’s face, the cross-section’s WidmanstÃ¤tten pattern (long intersecting bands of kamicite and taenite crystals that form over millions of years of cooling) reveal the most likely source of origin to be an M-type asteroid lying between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
Made in Germany, the watch works as a precise lunar phase chronometer for either the northern or southern hemisphere, displaying the lunar cycle using a 1/2″-diam. window at the Noon hour’s position that simulates the Earth’s shadow to depict each minute during an entire synodic month. A strontium aluminate coating illuminates the Moon, hour and minute hands, and each hour marker.
