magrette bronze 2nd batch

Post by amleto »

Is anyone else here on the list for the second batch? Website (eu) still says they'll be ready about March time.

I have no idea if I'm guaranteed one or I have to rely on people declining - I only received an email saying I'm on the list, but I'm still looking forward to it :)

Have you heard anything about the recall on the first batch? Wrong grade of material used I heard that can cause allergic reactions...

Useful thread here

Quote from Magrette:
Regattare Bronze
We just learned that two of our colleague watch brands issued a recall for some of their watches after 3rd party tests showed that the alloy these watches were made of is not the CuSn8 that they ordered from their supplier.

Needless to say that we will have our Regattare Bronze tested as well to ensure we have been selling what we believe is a watch with a massive CuSn8 case. We have confirmation of our supplier that the alloy we ordered and received indeed is CuSn8, but we will have this double checked in a laboratory to make 100% sure. We will keep you updated on our facebook page / news page of our web site.

If it is necessary we will contact previous buyers by email as soon as we have more info. Rest assured we will do anything in our power to ensure that we get to the bottom of this.

Good to know that the Magrettes seem safe. I'm at ease.

That might explain a few 'funny' magrette bronzes. I know there were a few people that didn't believe CuSn8 was used.

edit:
misread that the magrette's appear to have been affected. I wonder if that will quieten conspiracies on wus or not?

edit again:
after having seen a 100% verified cusn8 helson next to a magrette... magrette does NOT look like cusn8 (sorry for linking to another forum http://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/helson ... ost4708994)

You can't tell from that photo...the lighting is different for each watch.

The watches are each at a different angle and therefore will 'take' the light different.

I'll give you that they do look different colours in that picture,but you couldn't be 100% sure unless they were at the same angle....imo.

And...how old is each watch ie bronze ages differently so one could just be a bit older and have aged a bit more or something along those lines.
