Some cushion shaped bracelets with shorter lugs work well with straight end links. Here is an example of one that works IMO. I matched up an old Android bracelet to this one.

Nordlys – AEROLIT – Meteorite​

$544

  • Swiss SuperLuminova Premium Grade BGW9
  • 200 meter / 20 ATM water resistance

A unique dial​

The meteorite stone dial on AEROLIT features a dial with several crystallized – almost three-dimensional layers – each of which gives a metallic sheen and an absolutely fantastic play of colors that is close to impossible to capture in images.

The meteorite stone used is an iron meteorite. The pattern seen on the meteorite stone is the so-called “Widmanstätten” pattern, a naturally occurring pattern found exclusively in meteorite stones (and in the interior of planets). The pattern emerges when iron is cooling under extreme pressure over millions – if not billions of years.

The meteorite stone used on AEROLIT comes from the Swedish “Muonionalusta” meteorite. The Muonionalusta meteorite was found in 1906 at the Swedish/Finnish border, near the village of “Kitkiöjärvi.” Isotope readings show that the Muonionalusta hit the Earth more than one million years ago.

The age and origin of the Muonionalusta meteorite stone are unknown. However, it is believed to be more than four billion years old. It would have been part of what was once a planet – or planetoid’s mantle or iron core until it experienced what scientists call a “cosmic event” around 400 million years ago.

It’s all about the details​

The indices, hands, and bezel markers are filled with luminescent BGW9 from Swiss Super-LumiNova®, which glows in the dark after a day in the sun.

We believe that scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is one of the hallmarks of a quality watch. That’s why you will find sapphire crystal on both the front and back of NORDLYS AEROLIT. The front crystal is slightly curved and features six layers of anti-reflective coating, giving a clear view of the dial.

NORDLYS AEROLIT is equipped with an automatic movement – the ultra-thin 9015 Premium Series automatic movement from Miyota. The thinness of the 9015 movement has allowed for a case height of just 11 mm.

NORDLYS is water-resistant up to 200 meters/20 ATM/660 ft.

Pure mechanics​

AEROLIT is driven by the ultra-slim premium Japanese Miyota high-beat 9015 automatic movement.

The movement comes with an engraved rotor as well as a custom date wheel with inverted colors and a custom font that matches the rest of the watch.

The slim profile of the movement has allowed for a case height of just 11 mm, making it the perfect choice even when wearing formal clothing.
