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.

This Tuscar is a limited edition of 20 pieces in white gold. This is a white gold version of the Bánú and features our very own time-only in-house calibre movement. We have retained the qualities that were so successful in the Tourbillon, including its distinctive design elements and high levels of fine finishing.

Finishing
All the wheels are finished in yellow gold, as is the seconds’ secteur.

The hands are flamed blue steel which contrasts nicely against the white gold case. The hands are finished with a flat grain and polished bevel.

This was designed by our sister and artist Frances McGonigle and, as with all our timepieces, was painstackingly hand-engraved.

Origin of Name Tuscar Bánú
Bánú meaning dawn in Irish is the perfect name for the new model Tuscar in rose gold. “Tuskar” (Irish: An Tuscar) is the name of a group of rocks topped with a lighthouse that is often the first glimpse of Ireland seen by those approaching by sea from the east.
Tuskar Rock lighthouse is one of the great Irish lighthouses. The area itself is where the Atlantic Ocean sweeps up the Irish Sea.
The solidity the name evokes is a powerful analogy for this McGonigles timepiece.
