In producing the Meteorite edition of the Beagle Swiss Made Automatic, the Earnshaw brand continues a journey of producing exceptional pieces for the public that utilize the best in watch making techniques and resources that are rarely seen outside the most storied of watch brands.
The Beagle collection is produced in tribute to HMS Beagle, that sailed with famed naturalist, historian and scientist Charles Darwin from 1831-1836.
It was the HMS Beagle that was navigated in part by Chronometer no. 509 produced by Thomas Earnshaw.
The Meteorite edition marries the same Beagle case but takes a piece of genuine Muonionalusta meteorite which is painstakingly carved and polished and assembled by hand in Switzerland. A see through cutaway portal gives a glimpse of the customized IT-10 21 jewel self-winding Swiss Made automatic movement also visible via the exhibition caseback.
With a scratch resistant sapphire crystal lens and marine grade stainless steel case – housing the mechanics, the Beagle is built to be enduring as a fitting home for a piece of natures’ own million year history.

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.
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.
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.
