Stephen McGonigle, the Irish watchmaker and founder of McGonigle Watches, presents his new brand MAGON. The debut creation from Magon Watches is the Fórsa Chronograph, which takes inspiration from the sport of rugby.
This Swiss made mechanical, column-wheel chronograph features a tonneau (barrel-shaped) case made of grade-5 titanium. There are two versions available. One in polished titanium and one in matt black, which is sandblasted DLC. The variant with black DLC is known as Fórsa Dubh (dubh is Irish for black).
The Fórsa Chronograph is equipped with the LJP 7772 self-winding calibre made by Manufacture la Joux-Perret SA, La Chaux-de-Fonds. This 28-jewel movement has a power reserve of 55 hours.
Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, the oscillating weight of this meticulously finished movement is treated with an attractive PVD green coating.
The barrel-shaped case is topped with a domed sapphire crystal glass. The watch is water resistant up to 100 meters. It comes fitted on a hand-stitched rubber strap with a grade 5 titanium buckle. The generous application of Super-LumiNova on the indexes and hands ensure excellent visibility in the dark.
Each MAGON Fórsa Chronograph version is limited to 50 pieces only.
