As I wrote earlier in the week the latest hand wound watch from Marloe, the Haskell, was announced on Thursday and it looks a very impressive effort.
The big difference for Marloe is this watch uses a Swiss movement; the 2804-2 manual winding mechanical movement . It is a small movement at around ∅25.6mm and 3.35mm thick when fully wound will run for over 40 hours. Despite this small size the 2804-2 still beats at 28,800 bph.
Marloe tell us the Haskell was designed with the modern day adventurer in mind, whether an urban wanderer, working through the bustling city commute, or a world traveller trekking through new environments; the Haskell is designed to be with you every step of the way.
The 40mm case, which offers 100m water resistance, has a subtle barrel profile with robust yet elegant lugs; thick, flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating; signature Antarctica domed caseback; a big, solid concave double o-ring crown .
The Haskell is currently available in four colours all costing £995.
I received an e-mail that I thought letting you all know about. Marloe will announce their fourth watch this Thursday (October 26th) at 3pm (BST).
This watch will be limited to 500 pieces. For the first time from Marloe the watch will use a Swiss movement. The brand from Oxfordshire has used Chinese movements in their first two watches, the Cherwell and Lomond. They followed these using a Japanese Miyota movement in the Derwent.
It always happen, I read the FT most days when I’m having my lunch, simply because it is there in the office. Every once in a while an article on watches pops up. Well here is one I missed because I was travelling, this is real “sod’s law” especially as the article heavily features British watch brands Marloe and Farer, I don’t approve of bloggers just nicking other peoples work, especially that of professional journalists so her is a link to the article.
