Recently, the Marloe Watch Company presented their brand-new luxury collection, Pacific. Before covering those new watches, let’s talk about the brand for just a moment. Founded in Scotland in 2015 by Oliver Goffer and Gordon Fraser, they are independent watch designers and producers that specialize in hand wound and automatic mechanical pieces. Now let me introduce their latest and in my opinion their greatest range. The Marloe Pacific range features four models: Pacific 52, Pacific 55, Pacific 66 and the Pacific 72. Along with the names, they all have one thing in common – Aviation .
Let’s start with Marloe Pacific 52. Its a tribute to the Havilland Comet which was the worlds first ever jet commercial aircraft. This piece features a tri-finish case with polished upper and lower decks along with vertically brushed sides accompany the frosted side aperture for an ever changing case. The style of the dial is one thing that all four models have in common: they feature a pillow cross section which rise to a central plateau which really makes the dial standout. On the Marloe Pacific 52 the dial color is what really makes this piece different to anything I have ever seen on any timepiece before , featuring colors from the metal fuselage, cowlings and apertures ( all aircraft parts) and a very subtle and i mean subtle hint of salmon along with a sandpaper texture dial with high polished numerals. You’re left with a very unique retro style piece that would look good on any occasion.
Next on the runway we have the Marloe Pacific 55 which celebrates the introduction of First Class to our skies .This piece oozes gold, luxury and sophistication. The two tone gold dial, along with black markings, a sunken sub dial all add the luxury factor to this piece. The most notable and a first for the company is the tri-finish custom gold tone case. Honestly along the pillow cross section that rises to a plateau to make the dial shine even more a feature that all the Pacific Range feature make this watch is a must for anyone who wants real luxury timepiece without having to remortgage the house. Up next is a personal favorite of mine, the Marloe Pacific 66 which is a tribute to SR-71 Blackbird which could fly at speeds of up to 2000 miles per hour and an altitude of more then 85000 feet, along with the first jet to feature a radial cross section which reduced its detection in the sky to nearly 90 percent made this jet a real god of the skies (more on the plane here).
Now back to the watch the Marloe Pacific 66 is to no suprise black with block indexes made entirely from Superluminova c3 for a unmatched intensity just like the Blackbird SR-71. The dial also features a contrasting sub dial which i think adds a much needed feature to the dial along with railroad track skirting around the edges all incased in a tri finish dlc black bespoke case for that stealth look and finish.
Last but by no means least we have the Marloe Pacific 76, which is a very bright but extremely stylish timepiece like all in the range this piece is no different and is in tribute to the Concorde. Like the others in the range the attention to detail and the finish of the Marloe Pacific 76 is truly phenomenal. The case a highly finished tri-finish bespoke case features a white glossy railroad style ring which along with bright blue dial, white indexes with c3 lume and a radial sub dial with hit of red on seconds really make this watch stand out.
