It has been some time since I reported on Magrette Watches. It looks like they have been busy and for 2019, they will be launching a new watch.
The watch is the Moana Pacific Waterman Bronze. It is currently at the pre-order stage. I like the look of the watch.
More about the watch...
We are very pleased to introduce to the Waterman family the new Waterman Bronze.
The name represents us as New Zealanders and our Māori and Pacific Island whanau, the love of the water. The bronze patina changes every day, like the ocean itself. The symbolism of the blue dial represents the surrounding waters of the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean and the gold bronze case the changing landscape of time.
We use a marine grade CuSn8 bronze so when the patina forms, it is hard and can't be scratched off easily, and forms a protective surface layer.
We hope you enjoy the new Waterman Bronze as much as we enjoyed creating it.
