CLARKE R.S. Jr. et al. (1992) Clues to the developmental and disintegration history of the Watson (and probably also the Kodaikanal) IIE iron meteorite parent body (Meteoritics 27-3, 1992, A210): The Watson iron meteorite contains a large silicate mass of H-group composition, igneous texture, and of IIE oxygen isotopes linking anew the IIEs and the H chondrites.
