Footnotes

  • The dial of this watch comes from a meteorite found by Robert E. Peary in 1894, of cosmic origin. And lists the Impact point: 76°4' N., and 64°58' W. in Cape York, Greenland. Robert Edwin Peary (1856-1920) was an American admiral and explorer and was born in Cresson Springs, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. He made eight Arctic voyages to the Greenland coast and in 1909 he led the first expedition to the North Pole.
