"The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore...unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible...it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors...to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown"

" This deed of Magellan has shown for all time that an idea, winged by genius and sturdily energized by passion, proves stronger that the elements of nature, and that a thing which a hundred generations have regarded as no more than a whish-dream can by one man in his short lifetime be translated into the realm of reality and become an imperishable truth "

A Little About Us

Hold the World in you Hand

Magellan Watch is named after Ferdinand Magellan (1479-1521). This great navigator and explorer embarked on a daring expedition that has become known as the first circumnavigation of the world.

Magellan Watch is established in the heart of the Swiss watch-production region. Employing some of the most gifted local craftsmen, the company creates and produces tactile and aesthetically pleasing timepieces – incorporating proven high quality Swiss precision components – dedicated to a discerning clientele, world-wide.

Created in 2000, Magellan Watch was bought up by Mario G. Nargi in 2010… a transition that should propel the brand from its current confidential status to the international renown it deserves.
