Deconstruction McGonigle Minute-repeater

The Reason

A unique hand finished and engraved minute repeater with Irish design influences.

A minute repeater is a complication in a mechanical watch that audibly chimes the hours, quarters and minutes.

Ceol, the name of this repeater in Gaelic means music. The dial is engine turned then laquered green. ... terepeater

Looks better when it's partially exploded. Probably even better yet if they were to blow it up completely.
All that for a watch that looks like it should be given away with every purchase of a case of Harp.

Why, he's no fun, he fell right over.

Nice movement, boring case, ghastly dial.

Love the font, everything else blows greasy chunks.

That's pretty good for a bunch of bog-trotters.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
