Meteorite slice riveted between cross-hatched bronze on a brown leather band with red stitching detail.
Meteorite is composed of metals which were formed in space 4 billion years ago, and are composed of an iron-nickel alloy containing significant amounts of cobalt and phosphorus.
Although it fell in prehistoric times, it was ‘discovered’ in 1838 and named after the nearest town Gibeon, Namibia. As of 2004, the Namibian government banned export of all fragments, increasing the value while making it even harder to come by.
Cold hard facts:
- material: bronze frame, leather strap
- watch face: Gibeon meteorite
