Magrette in NZ have a new watch on pre-order, the Leoncino. This is a limited edition, just 100 pieces and we love that bold stand-out dial design. Here’s the word;
The Māori creation story begins with a description of darkness and nothingness, out of which Ranginui, the sky father, and Papatūānuku, the earth mother, emerge. Initially, earth and sky are joined together, and their children are born between them. But the children conspire to separate their parents, and this allows light to flow into the world.
Features include thick double domed sapphire crystal, BGW9 Swiss Super-LumiNova hands, with cut out “sandwich” dial markers for added depth and lume volume. The detailed caseback includes multiple finishes, the Magrette shield raised proud of a bead-blasted background, and razor-sharp engraving of key technical specifications.
This timepiece is powered by the automatic Sellita Caliber SW200-1, a reliable and proven Swiss mechanical movement.
The Leoncino 40mm is complemented for the first time with a custom H-link bracelet featuring contrasting brushed and polished finishes. This is custom fit bracelet complete with quick release mechanism for tool-free strap changes. And features a discrete (and low profile) butterfly clasp with the Magrette logo crisply signed.
This limited-edition Māori dial is presented in black DLC (diamond-like carbon) finish with red-tipped seconds hand. The dial features a custom relief set against the black dial.
The Leoncino 40mm Māori is a limited edition release of only one-hundred (100) pieces.
