For some, the purchase of a watch is a purely practical matter, while for others it is a convenient shorthand to show wealth, taste, or class. For yet another group it is a deeply personal matter, one of personal expression or even identity. Chances are, if you frequent this site, you fall into the last group.
Whether you’re a collector of microbrand watches, vintage pieces from established or extinct brands, or a hunter of limited editions, you likely look for watches that “speak to you.” Maybe it’s the movement inside, maybe it’s the aesthetic of the case and dial, maybe it’s the story behind it, maybe it’s a combination of all those elements, and more.
Once in a while, a watch comes along that resonates in a singular way, perhaps in such a singular way that you throw out your personal rules about budget. For me, the Kaitiaki by Magrette out of New Zealand is just such a watch.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
