Launch Year — 2017
The Magrette Leoncino (Little Lion) has a distinct look from my other Magrette models - our design inspiration for this new model coming from the 60’s.
The 60's were stylish with their car, motorcycle designs, films and architecture. It was an era of creative design that was embraced from the man on the street through those who controlled the commercial decisions.
It was important for me to explore something a little different from my other designs. The squarish case is simple and stylish with very smooth lines. The buckle and crown give a slight retro twist which I am always fond of, while the dial design has the recognized Magrette look and feel. I think the mix integrates extremely well to give a timeless look and feel in it's own right.
Some features include blue sunburst dial, thick double domed sapphire crystal, BGW9 and old radium color Super Luminova hands and dial, cut out markers on dial. With a few more other subtle features like the custom rotor (see image of Moana Pacific Professional KARA) and laser etching Magrette text.
This timepiece is powered by the automatic Caliber STP1-11 from Swiss Technology Production SA .This movement along with a new custom winding rotor is visible through a sapphire caseback.
