Lot Essay

Robert Edwin Peary (1856-1920) was an American explorer generally credited with leading the first party to reach the north pole.

The dial of this watch is made of a fragment of one of the meteorites from the world's largest meteorite shower, totalling 58 tons, discovered by Peary near Cape York during his Greenland expedition in 1894.
