Leoncino 40mm Edition Sunray Dial
Fan Favourite Magrette Design Now in 40mm
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 and motorcycle designs, films and architecture. It was an era of creative design that was embraced from those 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 crown gives a slight retro twist which I am always fond of, while the dial has the recognized Magrette look and feel. The mix integrates extremely well to give a timeless look and feel.
Some features include thick double domed sapphire crystal, BGW9 and Old Radium Swiss Super-LumiNova hands, with cut out "sandwich" dial markers for added depth and lume volume. The detailed caseback includes multiple finishes, the Magrette shield raised proud of a bead-blasted background, and razor-sharp engraving of key technical specifications.
This timepiece is powered by the automatic Sellita Caliber SW200-1, a reliable and proven Swiss mechanical movement. New to the Leoncino series is a date window, here displayed at 4:30 with a clean round aperture.
The Leoncino 40mm is complemented for the first time with a custom H-link bracelet featuring contrasting brushed and polished finishes. This is custom fit bracelet complete with quick release mechanism for tool-free strap changes. And features a discrete (and low profile) butterfly clasp with the Magrette logo crisply signed.
Three colourways are available in this collection: Stealthy black DLC (diamond-like carbon), sporty brushed stainless with black dial, and sophisticated stainless with blue sunray dial and bronze-tone rehaut. The black-dial models feature sharp red-tipped seconds hand, while the blue dial plays off against the warm bronze accents.
