Magrette Has a Little NZ Edge

Magrette have a new 2021 watch that carries a distinct tattoo effect on its case. The Kaitiaki has a wave effect down the side of its 42mm case and on the lugs. The Maori inspired art is hand-crafted, has a little bit of Kanagawa wave mixed in there too, all of which makes this a pretty unique watch we reckon.

ETA movement, sapphire crystal, $3200, about £2250.
