Call for Price

The McGonigle Irish Swiss Tourbillon Watch.

Description

As watchmakers McGonigle strive for elegance, simplicity, precision and reliability. In their efforts to achieve these goals McGonigle have taken the view that less is often more. This is a principle McGonigle adopted with the design of their Tourbillon.

McGonigle wanted to distil the elements that they loved and respected in the masterpieces that had passed through our hands while working in restoration.

FEATURES

DIALS

The dial is on two levels. The lower hour track is machined into the case ring. This, like the movement, is made from German silver.
The upper dial is sapphire crystal, affording a view not only of the tourbillon but the entire movement.

CASE

The back has a sapphire glass back through which the engraved mainplate can be viewed.

WOLF TOOTH GEARING

All gearwheels use the ‘dents de loup’ or ‘wolf’s teeth’ variety that was particularly popular in watchmaking

during the 19th century. Due to the fact that these teeth are not uniform, they require a vast amount of manual labour to finish them.
