Meteorite Watch


Recommended Posts

I was allways fascinated by Gems, Minerals and Meteorites.
Then there was a Video on Youtube about a Watch with a Meteorite-Dial.
I want that too...... luckily i could buy a Meteorite-Dial with 31mm Diameter.
But the way the Guy in this Video made it was not acceptable for me,  i dont want to
glue the Dial to the Movement and he did not use the Screws to fix the Movement to the
Holder. So i bought Dial-Feets and glued them to the Dial, for this i made a Fixture to get the
exact Position for the Dial-Feets. So far so good, but the Dial was not flush with the Spacer
(Werkhaltering) of the Movement and the Heigth of the Stem was not exactly in line with the Case
with a Clone of 2824 / ST2130, but it did run.......for two Days.
Time to do it again, but better. I had to mill Pockets for the Dial-Feets about 0.14mm deep and glued them
again, now they are flush. I used a Clone 2826/ST2100 and the Stem fits now ok.
And some Pictures of the Dial, the Fixture (with Teflon Sheet), the Fixture with the Parts to put Pressure to the Dial

(for the Glue), the Dial with the Feets and the finished Watch, bottom and Top.

I hope you like it

Did the seller of that dial say where the meteorite came from (where it was found) ?. I have been polishing and etching a couple of meteorites, you have to etch them to get that structure on them. I suspect this specimen seems to come from Muonionalusta, Sweden.

I like you kept the dial nice and clean which displays the mineral structure in the meteorite, very nice indeed.

I have been seeing some of these about as they seem to have been increasingly popular with the Seiko watchmodder aftermarket movement. They have all been badged as 'Seiko Meteormasters' but I didn't realise that they may have been made with actual meteorite!
