Magrette Watches down in NZ have got a new model on pre-order. Here’s the lowdown on the Moana Pacific Waterman, Bronze edition.
The Waterman name represents us as New Zealanders and our Māori and Pacific Island whānau, our shared love of the water. Two colourways are now available including the Waterman Bronze and the new Waterman Vintage. It’s $765 on the pre-order deal for the bronze case model, and $665 for the stainless steel case, which we think is a very fair price given the spec; Swiss movement, sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel, 500m dive rating and superlume in just the right places.
The Waterman Bronze case patina changes every day, like the ocean itself and the changing landscape of time. The symbolism of the blue dial represents New Zealand’s surrounding waters—the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean. The 42mm case is constructed from marine grade CuSn8 bronze; when the patina forms it is hard and forms a protective surface layer. It uniquely takes on the character of the owner and their environment.
The new Waterman Vintage is cased in brushed stainless steel and features a velvet black dial and black ceramic bezel paired with warm-toned Swiss Super-LumiNova®. Note: At the time of this launch only renderings available as included in the photo gallery.
Both watches feature the robust Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic mechanical movement, paired with textured rubber (blue or black) and vintage minimal stitch leather straps.
