On Friday afternoon I received an e-mail from Marloe watches announcing their second kickstarter project, these distinctively styled watches.

Normally, I am not a huge fan of these alternative dial designs but I think this British designed/Swiss made watch is pretty cool looking.

The Kickstarter page  goes live on February 27th. Maybe worth going for the early bird offers.

Last week in the Financial Times Watches and Jewellery special section there was a thought provoking article in which Jorn Wedelin, the Danish but British based watchmaker gives his opinions on the future of luxury watchmaking. It is better to read the whole article. Here is a link to the FT.

One point he made that I think points to a future for our British brands when pitted against the Swiss power brands is – rarity. Part of the appeal of luxury watches is their rarity and their stories. Fingers crossed.
