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…
The Pacific 52 has salmon indices and sapphire box crystal. The dial boasts a subtle sandpaper texture with applied copper block Arabic numbers and an brushed aluminium outer ring.
The sibling Pacific 55 has a two-tone gold base with black markings, gold pips and polished numerals complementing its 1-micron gold PVD tri-finish case.
By way of contrast, the Pacific 66 has a black DLC tri-finish case, and features block indices and numerals coated with Superluminova.
Finally, the classic looking Pacific 76 sports a glossy white railroad track outer ring, surrounding a blue dial with white numerals. Indices and numerals are dipped in lume.
All Pacific models use a hand wound Swiss Sellita movement, are an easy-to-wear 40mm wide and 12mm deep, and are water resistant down to 100m.
