Touch of Space
For the incredible meteorite dial of this watch, Torgoen has sourced slices of the Muonionalusta meteorite that fell in Sweden one million years ago. It's special pattern, unique to each one of the models creates an impressive effect to a classic aviation timepiece.
Shortly after the formation of our solar system, about 4.5 billion years ago, an object was formed in space composed of iron and nickel alloy. Since then, the object roamed about our solar system, until approximately one million years ago when it hit the earth near the Arctic Circle in the northern part of what is now Sweden, near the border with Finland. The impact broke up this iron meteorite and the debris dispersed over an area of 15 x 20 kilometers. The first fragment was found in 1906 and since then, about 40 pieces are known to be retrieved. The meteorite was named Muonionalusta after a nearby place in the Muonio River. The unique and wonderful pattern that can be seen once a slice is cut, was formed by the crystallization process during the cooling phase of the iron-nickel alloy of this rare outer-space object.
Loyal to Torgoen’s signature, the special Meteorite T16 ergonomically designed for ease of read. Digits and markers can be viewed clearly even in the dark. The chronograph movement is made by Ronda, a highly regarded Swiss movement manufacturer, able to measure times between two events with a resolution of 1/10 of a second and is also splits and laps two time measurements, and the counter measures time up to 30 minutes. Besides this great and well known movement, the T16 offers a high grade (316L) solid stainless steel case with a screw-down back, a sapphire, scratch proved crystal, a double “O” ring crown that gives the T16 its water resistance protection up to 100 meters.
This is a unique opportunity to own a rare piece of space matter.
