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.
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.
Marloe Haskell – blue
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 Range
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).
The Haskell – teaser
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.
This is all the news at the moment.
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.
