Made in Japan, this Kyoto Based brand uses amazing meteorite to create a mesmerizing dial for a beautifully chic watch

KNIS Meteorite Dial Watch

A wrist watch dial made from a meteorite that fell from the stars.

With a beautifully mysterious mesh-like pattern that is particular to meteorites, created thanks to the millions of years that the meteorite has taken to develop, that is not replicable on earth.

This beautiful yet mystifying pattern is brought to the surface when the meteorite falls to earth, after being chipped and chiseled away after these 1,000,000s years in space.

Hold a microcosmos on your wrist and delight in the beauty of these unique watches.


What is a meteorite?

A meteorite is a rather generic name given to rocks that fall to earth from outer space, that have a rather peculiar characteristic of having a mesh pattern, known as a Widmanstätten pattern.

This rather mysterious pattern is unique to each meteor, which has the effect of enticing a lot of men to buy or use them.

Since ancient times, these unique rocks that have fallen from the stars have been associated with things such as truth, longevity, divine providence of nature, and gods. They have been seen by some to be gifts from God, a target of worship as a link to the heavens.

Some think of them to have the power to release the inner potential of oneself, or to hold a hidden power of the universe inside!

Using extremely valuable Muonionalusta meteorite

The KNIS watch uses Muonionalusta meteorite, a type of meteorite which has an incredibly beautiful display of the Widmanstätten pattern, but is extremely difficult to get as it is found mainly around the North Pole, with very little in circulation due to the difficulty that comes with trying to excavate it. This makes this material extremely rare.

 Creating a Luxurious Black model

In addition to the Silver watch that we already make, we have created a Black model for this project.

This model is brilliantly bold, giving a high quality feel to your wrist, and is sure to bring attention to you as you wear it.

A Citizen MIYOTA movement

The movement used in the watch is from a Japanese brand that is well known for its reliability, and exceedingly high quality, Citizen, with their brand concept of being able to use their watches forever.

This type of movement is also extremely easy to care for, and if in the very unlikely event of it breaking, the parts needed to fix the movement can be found with relative ease.


A Sapphire Glass

Sapphire Watch Glass is used for this watch, which is also used in other high end watches, due to their protection against the wind, as well as their optic clarity.

Thanks to this amazing glass, you can see each detail of the dial of the watch, and compared to mineral crystal glass, it is harder to scratch and damage.

The creation of sapphire glass is rather a hard process, which also comes with high costs, leading it to be used a lot with extremely high quality Swiss watches.


Looks stunning even when looking at it in profile

The design of the watch has been made so that no part goes to waste, with a simple but refined design that focuses on making the watch functional but also elegant and stylish.

No compromises have been made when it comes to the quality of the watch, with careful consideration being taken in regards to the materials used, and the polishing and coating.


A 5 stranded stainless steel strap

Thanks to the special processing and polishing that goes into the creation of the strands, the band looks like it has a deep look to it, giving a more elegant feel to the watch strap.


A one push release clasp

In order to open the strap widely, we’ve utilised a one push release clasp that lets you wear and remove with ease.

The buckle sits directly behind the face of the watch, meaning that when you wear it, it sits nicely on your wrist.


MADE IN JAPAN

Not only is the movement that the KNIS watch uses made in Japan, but the watch itself is pieced together her in Japan as well.

We have a pride in the Made in Japan brand that many people all over the world is starting to pick up on.

The creation of the watch has been contracted to a watch maker that has had over 30 years in the watch making business.

We will of course be doing after follow after you purchase so please don’t worry if something happens.

We want to bring you an amazing item that you can wear forever


A case size under 40mm

Following a recent trend that has seen compact watches be the item to have, we have decided to create a watch that is 38mm in diameter.

In recent years, bigger sized faces have become popular with overseas brands, but we have gone for a compact Japanese style.

We think that this face is not too big and not too small, it is just right, and combined with the amazing dial, you can clearly read the numbers on the face of the watch


A design that fits you no matter the time

With a simple design that is also extremely chic, this will fit you whether you’re going to work, or you are on your day off.

The watch will never become dull, with its amazingly impressive face that blends into any wardrobe.

It is also rather simple, meaning it isn’t reliant on the fashion trends at the time, meaning you can fall in love with it and wear it for many years to come.

With this meteorite accessory, you can always give off a rather adult chic look no matter the time.


 A no date design

Recently it has become common practice to add a date dial on the face of the watch.

However we don’t want to take away from the amazing meteorite dial of the watch, and therefore we have gone without the date on the face.

We hope that you can fully enjoy the amazing pattern found on the dial.

A high quality meteorite watch that also doesn’t break the bank and is under 100,000 yen

When you look at some watches available by Swiss makers that use meteorite for the dial of the watch, the majority of them costing ¥100,000s.

The KNIS watch is a watch that utilises this beautiful meteorite as a dial, but is also available under ¥100,000.

Even more it contains a brilliant Citizen movement, and pristine stainless steel for the strap, and extremely clear Sapphire glass.

When it comes to cost performance of watches, this is extremely high up on the list we think!

The KNIS watch uses a SPA business model

By using this business model we go straight from factory to online stores cutting out the middle men, and reducing the costs.


Authenticity of meteorite is proven by the A.G.L

Unfortunately when it comes to meteorites, especially high quality ones, there is a large market for fakes.

That is why we also will have the meteorites that we use in the watch you receive be certified by the Association of Gemmological Laboratories, Japan, A.G.L

The watch you receive will use meteorite that is of a high quality which has been certified.

※This certificate will not be sent with the watch.

※The authentication of the meteorite will happen to a sample of the watches. The organisation won’t be certifying each individual watch separately.


 A box that exudes luxury and perfection

For a high quality watch, a box of similar standard is also needed.

When you open the box that has been stamped with the brand logo, you will find a small leather imprinted box that contains the watch.

Inside this leather imprinted box is a velour box that the watch sit elegantly inside.

This makes it perfect for giving as a gift as is!


A wristwatch brand created in Kyoto <KNIS>

Starting in the traditional capital of Japan Kyoto, a place where traditional manufacturing is still abundant, and where this traditional manufacturing is also extremely well polished, we looked to create an item that can be worn by all for many years to come, that wouldn’t be swayed by the fashion swings of the years, which was also rooted in the high quality of Japanese craftsmanship. We were able to create a brand that we can create in house, helping to reduce costs of middle men and bringing those savings to you.
