The NORDLYS Meteorite Collection: Unique Watches with Muonionalusta Meteorite Dial

4 billion years in the making

We are excited to introduce the NORDLYS Meteorite collection. The collection features watches equipped with dials made from meteorite stone from the Muonionalusta meteorite, which fell to earth approximately one million years ago.

A type of iron meteorite called the Muonionalusta meteorite was found in Sweden in 1906. The area where it was found, called Muonionalusta, is Sami for "eternal dawn." One of the oldest known objects in the cosmos, the meteorite is believed to have originated at the birth of the solar system.

A statement piece

The NORDLYS Meteorite collection is highly collectible due to the limited number of watches produced - only 30 pieces per model and as few as 18 pieces for some models (AEROLIT).

At Henry Archer, we are committed to using only the highest-quality materials in the production of our watches. The NORDLYS Meteorite collection is no exception, with a meteorite stone dial set in a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass case. The watches are powered by a Miyota 9000 series automatic movement, and the straps are made of aerospace-grade FKM rubber for both style and comfort. These straps are heat, oil, and chemical resistant and have been specifically designed to withstand harsh environments.

The NORDLYS Meteorite watches are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. The meteorite stone dial is set against a minimalistic setting, allowing it to be the focus of the design.

The Muonionalusta meteorite

This ancient meteorite has a unique composition, containing high levels of nickel and cobalt as well as trace amounts of other elements such as iridium, platinum, and gold. It is classified as a fine octahedrite due to a distinctive pattern of parallel lines on its surface known as the "Widmanstätten pattern".

From the dawn of the solar system

One of the earliest known objects in the cosmos, the Muonionalusta meteorite is estimated to have formed at the beginning of the solar system. The Muonionalusta meteorite is estimated to be 4.5 billion years old, which puts it very close to the age of the solar system.
