Founded in 2000 by Everhard Vissers, Magellan Watch was named after navigator Ferdinand Magellan, known as the first circumventer of the world. The brand is established in the heart of the Swiss watchmaking region, Magellan engages the local craftsmen who produce aesthetically engaging timepieces that incorporate high quality Swiss precision components. Each design is based on a semi-spherical dial and a sapphire crystal that evokes Magellan’s famed voyage. Mario G. Nargi, the brand’s current owner, has committed to propelling the brand from its confidential status to the international renown it deserves.
For 25 years, International Watch has been the definitive authority for all watch-related matters, providing in-depth reports on all aspects of horology, from established Swiss watchmaking firms to independent houses of horology, product reviews, technical stories, wrist trends, the unique culture of collectors, and more.
