Over the years, we’ve covered plenty of watch brands you should know, but probably don’t. They all remain great brands to this day, but they’re not doing the kind of crazy things that upstart watchmaker David Rutten is doing. David Rutten’s first offering is an Art Deco style watch with a tank-style case and a small viewing window that’s best described as avant-garde, and that’s before you start talking about the extraterrestrial case materials. No. Seriously. This watch, in addition to all the modern style cues and svelte leather strap, is made with octahedrite meteorites. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. This watch, based on the Christopher Ward SH21 movement with five days of power reserve with a jumping hour complication, is built with real, actual meteorites. Who wouldn’t want to strap that on their wrist? The David Rutten DR-01 Streamline–again, made with meteorites!–is limited to 88 different pieces.
