The way Magrette keeps rolling out such sensational watches is hard to believe Rick !
Think they are one of those small watch companies that have really taken things up
a level. From their higher priced models, to the more affordable ones, Magrette seems
to work their magic.
Whether it's the attention to detail with all of their beautiful
cases, or the way the dials seem to come alive. Magrette seems to give their watches,
and customers their all. Which is REALLY nice imho. Not only do the watches look
great, but they evidently have some very creative people behind them that know
what people who love watches might like. Congratulations on finding such a cool
watch company, as well as watch !
Want to first thank you for giving us all
of the extra information about this Magrette. The story behind the bronze being
an homage to Mr. McAsey's enjoyment of older ships was terrific to learn about,
and helps you enjoy the watch even more. Also think the whole patina theme is
very interesting as well. Honestly never knew that much about it until the last few
months hearing about it from you guys.
In any case, it's GREAT ! ..So was
the decision to go with that brown dial. The way that plays off of the bronze case
is TOO GOOD sir. Think it all has to do with Magrette again trying to understand
what watch people enjoy. They definitely found the secret it seems.
bronze theme by itself, with it's connection to those classic vessels, as well as
older vintage watches is exceptional. On the one hand, you have yourself a BRAND
NEW watch that gives you a popular look, but then on the other hand you have
a timeless look TOO ! It's a perfect mix of everything cool imho Rick. ..Add in the
additional surpise of the watch actually changing over time with the patina, and
you really can't ask for much more. Can only imagine how much extra character
that will add to this watch, which ALREADY has a TON of character to begin with.
Seeing this vintage styled case with such an antique looking finish must be VERY
nice. Same goes for seeing that dial there with it's smooth looking markers, and
numbers. It just has such a warm feel about it with the combination of finishes,
along with colors. Even the way the hands match up with the look of the markers
is excellent. ..Also think the fact that there is actually wood within the watch is
out of this world also Rick ! Yowza, that isn't something you see every day with
watches. Wow ! Then again, this Magrette doesn't seem like your every day watch.
It has all of the style, and design to fit in today, but then has all of the craftsmanship,
and charm of yesterday. This Magrette is magical sir. Congrats, and as always, I
hope you enjoy !
Beautiful watch, beautiful PICS !
