Overview

Meteorites, falling from space have for years yielded a mythical, powerful element to the art of Lapidary.

Meteorite materials are truly – the remnants of a time and space that well supersedes the life and times of Earth.

Crafted by space, heat and the forces of the galaxy the rare stones that land on earth are fragments and reminders of the Universe around us.

Earnshaw has created three incredible Swiss Made timepieces as part of its Lapidary collection using Meteorite fashioned into dials.

Each dial is utterly unique and represents its own intriguing lattice of naturally occurring - Widmanstätten patterns, cutting light and shadow across the face of the dial.

Each limited edition pays witness to the skill and craftsmanship of the artisans who build every Earnshaw – and to pay tribute to man’s journey of discovery – whether it be on our planet or others.

The Muonionalusta is a meteorite which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and Finland, about one million years BC.

Studies have shown it to be the oldest discovered meteorite impacting the Earth during the Quaternary period, about one million years ago. It is quite clearly part of the iron core or mantle of a planetoid, which shattered into many pieces upon its fall on our planet.

The meteorite was first described in 1910 by Professor A. G. Högbom, who named it "Muonionalusta", after a nearby place on the Muonio River.

The first fragment of the Muonionalusta was found in 1906 near the village of Kitkiöjärvi. Less than 40 pieces of the stone are known to exist today and it is still regarded as probably the oldest meteorite known to man.

Each THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece is designed and manufactured to exceed the highest of standards. In order to ensure optimal performance and longevity from your timepiece, please review the simple guidelines for care and precautions of your new THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece.

Care

Your timepiece should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water only. Do not submerge your timepiece. Your timepiece should be rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth after any saltwater use. In order to maintain the “new look” of metal bracelets, we recommend periodic cleanings of the bracelet. Dip a soft brush in warm soapy water and gently rub bracelet clean. We advise having your timepiece serviced every 18-24 months to ensure long use and trouble free operation.

Precautions

While your THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece has been designed and built to exacting specification, it is important to avoid the following conditions: extreme heat or cold, as well as prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that exceed your timepiece’s water rating (see case back and chart). Never operate any of the function buttons or crown when timepiece is in contact with water.

Avoid exposure to strong magnetic fields or sources of static electricity as these may interrupt the mechanisms inside the watch. It is also important to avoid extreme shock or impact.
