New Zealand based watch brand MAGRETTE announces its new timepiece, LEONCINO (Little Lion), which has a distinct look from previous Magrette models. The design inspiration for this new model came from the 60’s, an era of creative design.
The square case of LEONCINO is simple and stylish with very smooth lines. The buckle and crown give a slight retro twist, while the dial design has the recognized Magrette look and feel. Some features include brushed/polished and bead blasted case finish, thick double domed sapphire crystal, C3 Super Luminova hands and dial, cut out markers on dial. With a few more other subtle features like the DLC case back with anti finger-print coating and laser etching Magrette text.
MAGRETTE LEONCINO is equipped with a self-winding movement with hacking feature (MIYOTA 9015) of Japanese origin. It is affordable, reliable and accurate movement that is often compared to the well known ETA 2824 Swiss made movement.
The LEONCINO is finished off with leather strap that has red stitching plus an extra tan strap that is part of the package. This model will be produced in a limited edition of 667 pieces, and completion date is expected to be early November. The LEONCINO will be supplied in a new signature Magrette case.
