Tuscar in White Gold

TUSCAR BÁNÚ

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.

Features

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.

HAND-ENGRAVED MAINPLATE

Here is an image of the hand-engraved mainplate as seen through the sapphire back.

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.
