The Marloe Watch Company presents their brand-new luxury collection The Pacific. But before we talk about the collection and trust me it’s worth waiting for. Let me give you a brief introduction into the Marloe Watch Company. Founded in Scotland in 2015 by Oliver Goffer and Gordon Fraser, they are independent watchdesigners and producers that specialise in hand wound and automatic mechanical pieces. Now let me introduce their latest and in my opinion their greatest range.
The Pacific range features four models the Pacific 52, Pacific 55, Pacific 66 and the Pacific 72. All with one thing in common,Aviation, Now when i say no corners were cut when these were made i mean it. Lets start with Pacific 52. Its a tribute to the Havilland Comet which was the worlds first ever jet commerical aircraft. This piece features a tri finish case with polished upper and lower decks along with vertically brushed sides acompany 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. Okay enough deviating back to the 52 the dial colour is what really makes this piece different to anything I have ever seen on any timepiece before , featuring colours from the metal fuselag, cowlings and apertures ( all aircraft parts) add a very subtle and i mean subtle hint of salmon along with a sandpaper texture dial with high polished numerals, Your left with a very unique retro style piece that would look great on any occassion.
Next on the runway we have the Pacific 55 which celebrates the introduction of First Class Travel to our airways. This piece oozes gold, luxury and sophisication. 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 a must for anyone who wants real luxury timepiece without having to remortage the house. Two more to go next is a personal favourite of mine.
The Pacific 66 is a tribute to sr-71 Blackbird which could fly at speeds of upto 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 skys.

Now back to the watch the 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 addition 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 Pacific 72, which is a very bright but extremly stylish timepiece like all in the range this piece pays tribute to an historic aircraft ,Concorde. Like the others in the range the attention to detail and the finish of the Pacific 72 is truly phenonenal. 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.
