Magrette Baselworld Piece Unique Watch With Diamonds
Mixing beautiful engravings with diamonds - upping the luxury level to a higher degree, Magrette of New Zealand showed off this one-of-a-kind timepiece totally covered with beauty at Baselworld. The Maori-inspired designs are hand-engraved on the steel case by master engraver Andrew Biggs. This model, known as the "Magrette Baselworld 2010" piece unique (you can read more about it here on Magrette's website), was specially made for a single Magrette customer, but fans of the brand can appreciate the piece, that helps put the unique Kiwi brand in more of a spotlight among the decorated watch crowd.
The watch further has one of Magrette's newer, more updated watch dials with an embossed brand logo and bright LUM-TEC brand luminant. Each time Magrette does a new engraved piece they get nicer. The designs are a clever mix between classic European floral scroll designs and traditional Maori myth and legend images. The 44mm wide steel case has 60 diamonds totaling 1.73 carats - I love how they are arranged as well. I can't wait to see what Magrette will do next. While diamond decorated watches aren't in their standard collection, you could always ask for them to make you one really nicely...
