About the McGonigle Brothers
John and Stephen McGonigle hail from Ireland but as skilled watchmaking journeymen they have worked for a veritable who’s who of Switzerland’s finest watch manufactures including Franck Muller, Christophe Claret, Audemars Piguet and Breguet.
In 2007 they decided it was time to put their intricate skill and knowledge into creating their own brand of watches; timepieces which represent the finest traditions of Swiss haute horology and yet still retain a flavour of Ireland – albeit definitely not Riverdance for the wrist.
The McGonigles released the Tuscar at Baselworld 2011 to huge acclaim.
In this online radio chat interview, Jerome talks to John McGonigle co-founder and you guessed it one of the McGonigle brothers.
