Magraph by Massena LAB and Raúl Pagès is an Instant Classic

Massena LAB, founded by William Massena, develops timepieces in partnership with independent watchmakers to produce iconic watches. Its latest effort, the Magraph, is a collaboration with Raúl Pagès, an independent watchmaker, movement designer, and watch restorer.

The Magraph is housed in a 38.5mm stainless steel case that stands 10mm thick. It comes with an off-white sector dial design and satin finish with polished accents, featuring a circular-grained and rhodium-plated outermost sector ring, a radially grooved small-seconds subsidiary dial intersecting the main dial, and a heated blued steel hours, minutes, and seconds hands. The straps, designed exclusively for Massena LAB by Jean Rousseau, are made from indigo-dyed sustainably-sourced sturgeon skin with lustrous turquoise accents.

Visible through the caseback is Massena LAB’s proprietary M660 movement. The manual-winding 4Hz caliber M660 is decorated with Côtes de Genève and sports a 48-hour power reserve and hand-chamfered plates and bridges. The balance wheel hides a poinçon Pagès in the shape of a turtle and is surrounded by perlage finishing, a signature of Pagès.

The Magraph has a price tag of just $8,675 and has since sold out. Delivery of watches will begin in December 2022.
