New brands are great to see in the world of watch manufacturing, especially in Ireland, which has never really been a major player in watchmaking. But the great thing about today’s market is that lots of Indie brands can find a factory partner, design house and get something into production quickly.
The Magon brand has a watch enthusiast at the helm and its debut model sets the tone; bespoke, Swiss engineering, luxury detailing.
The Forsa is available in two variations. One has a polished titanium case while the other has a PVD carbon black coating on the case. We love the vivid emerald green strap by the way, which is another Magon bespoke touch.
Inside there is a Swiss sourced chronograph auto, made by La Joux Perret and modified by Magon. It has a 43mm wide case, which is tonneau style capturing the fashion of the 70s. The dial, with bold markers and plenty of lume is modern though. No date feature, just three sub-second dials.
There are just 50 pieces being made of the Forsa Dubh, which is the carbon case model, price is 11,800 plus VAT.
