4 billion years in the making
The meteorite stone used on NORDLYS AEROLIT comes from the Swedish “Muonionalusta” meteorite.
The Muonionalusta meteorite was found in 1906 at the Swedish/Finnish border, near the village of “Kitkiöjärvi.”
Isotope readings show that the Muonionalusta meteorite is more than 4 billion years old, and hit earth around 1 million years ago.

The meteorite stone dial on NORDLYS METEORITE features several crystallized layers that give off a metallic sheen and an incredible play of colors.
The fractal pattern on the meteorite dial is only found in meteorite stones and in the interiors of planets, and forms when iron cools under extreme pressure over millions of years.
The indices, hands, and bezel markers are filled with luminescent BGW9 from Swiss Super-LumiNova®, which glows in the dark after a day in the sun.
We believe that scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is one of the hallmarks of a quality watch. That’s why you will find sapphire crystal on both the front and back of NORDLYS AEROLIT. The front crystal is slightly curved and features six layers of anti-reflective coating, giving a clear view of the dial.
NORDLYS is water-resistant up to 200 meters/20 ATM/660 feet.
AEROLIT is driven by the ultra-slim premium Japanese Miyota high-beat 9015 automatic movement.
The movement comes with an engraved rotor as well as a custom date wheel with inverted colors and a custom font that matches the rest of the watch.
The slim profile of the movement has allowed for a case height of just 11 mm, making it the perfect choice even when wearing formal clothing.

We are proud of our Danish design heritage, which is the source of inspiration behind our designs.
We strive to create unique timepieces with a classic yet timeless design that will stand the test of time. Our design philosophy is rooted in the 1920’s “Bauhaus” design philosophy, where form follows function.
In our opinion, a great design is not purely limited to aesthetics.
That is why we only use high-quality materials, such as sapphire crystal, in our products– instead of cheaper and less durable alternatives, like mineral glass.
We are a small family-run Danish micro brand with a global reach.
Our passion is to bring something new to the table - to create timepieces with a unique aesthetic, solidly rooted in our Danish design heritage.
We often say “We do not do homages” and it is a rule we live by every day in our design disciplines. We strongly believe in order to bring something new to a century old industry, we genuinely have to think outside the box: whether that being new dial layouts, case shapes, materials or manufacturing methods.
The name “Henry Archer” is a direct translation of the name of our founder and product designer Henrik Schødt, who comes from a background in the 3D- and product-visualization industry, where he has spent close to two decades working for some of the worlds biggest brands.
Our design philosophy is rooted in the 1920’s “Bauhaus” design philosophy, where form follows function.
To this very day these are keywords that are the pillars of the world famous “Scandinavian minimalism” that has influenced architecture and many other industries around the world.
In our view, a great design comes from using clean lines and pure geometric forms.
All of the above allows the design to “breathe” and bring out the surface finishing and materials used.
