One of our favourite British brands has unveiled its new premium watch collection, the Marloe Pacific, inspired by the dawn of the jet age.
Introducing the Marloe Pacific Collection
British watch brand, Marloe Watch Company, takes influence from the achievements of incredible individuals and its new Pacific collection is no exception.
The Pacific is inspired by the dawn of the jet age, and in particular, the de Havilland Comet, which was the world’s first commercial jet airliner to cross the Pacific and circumnavigate the globe. Celebrating the jet-age futurism and the human-centric experience of being high above the clouds during the early days of flight are core
to the design of the collection.
“The challenge behind the Pacific was to create a watch that feels fluid, that exudes an effortless approach to a complex design; how can we present a watch that feels like it’s moving on your wrist, with a dynamism of shape, form and texture to make it feel like it’s soaring above the clouds.” says Gordon Fraser, co-founder and designer at Marloe Watch Company.
“The Pacific has one continuous upper curvature that is unbroken from lug to lug, over the dial around to the case back. The top surface forms a single curvature but the rear lines are turbulent, a nod to airflow over a wing”
Marloe says that the design of this collection brings together the fluidity of water with the complexity of aerodynamics. The watches are British designed and Swiss Made, making it a pinnacle design in Marloe’s collection.
Each model within the collection pays homage to the various evolutions of the jet-age, whilst the movement retains a humble look of an engine that is all business.
Each watch features a carefully constructed sapphire box crystal, casting mesmerising refractions that illuminate the dial in ever graceful fashion. Featuring polished upper and lower decks, with vertically brushed sides and, as another nod to the utilitarian mechanics of the jet age, a frosted surface in each side-aperture.
The Pacific collection consists of four styles priced at £975.
Inspired by the Comet – the dawn of jet-powered commercial flight. Retro by design with its salmon-coloured features.
A vintage feel, inspired by first class in air travel. The perfect watch for the lavish businessman.
Inspired by the dawn of stealth aircraft, covert and on the edge of daring, the ultimate in spy style.
Influenced by the dawn of supersonic commercial flight – Concorde.
This is the frequent flyer watch, for the person that is a professional jet traveller.
