The most “British” brand that I've had the opportunity to introduce. A blend of elegance, personality and attention to detail. A balanced approach we were not used to for a long time. The singularity of this brand created in 2015 by two young English men, Gordon Fraser, the Designer and Oliver Goffe, the Director, lies in the choice to offer hand-wound watches... and contrary to what one might think: it’s not a step backwards - considering the vintage spirit in which so many brands are complacent - but a true spirit of innovation for lovers of fine watchmaking.
Indeed what pleasure is more satisfying than to wind these beautiful mechanics every morning! Especially when we consider the quality of the mechanisms that run them. These carefully crafted Marloe watches, resolutely built to last a lifetime - well-groomed - move us to every detail (https://www.marloewatchcompany.com/): Structured dials perfectly designed, original cases with sapphire lenses (or acrylic for the Derwent model), leather straps of great beauty. These watches tell the time and bring the impression of an ideal companion.
We would expect to pay the high price for all this... but that's not so! They are just at the right price. The English love France more than we think and allow our fellow citizens to acquire these exceptional pieces in French in the text during the ordering process. With an option of free delivery, it will cost you only 5 euros more to receive the watch the next day. There are currently three models available (Cherwell, Derwent and Haskell) in several dial designs and a range of leather straps. The calibers: SeaGull ST36, Miyota 6T33 or ETA 2804-2. What more? At MBA, we love it!
So…, see you in just a few weeks to discover the new collection: The Coniston!
