The Marloe Pacific watch worn on a besuited arm

High-value British watch brand, Marloe, has caught our eye with its elegant new Pacific collection. Channelling fifties design, the timepieces take inspiration from the dawn of the Jet Age, and the de Havilland Comet in particular, the first commercial jet airliner to cross the Pacific.

Swiss made but British designed, the watch collection comprises four colourful models with enviable attention to detail: the Pacific 52, Pacific 55, Pacific 66 and Pacific 76. 

Swiss made, but British designed, the watch collection comprises four models, each with a tri-colour case and enviable attention to detail…
