In 2015, while changing a quartz battery, they were shocked and felt a little short-changed with the lack of a full movement encased in their watch. Oliver & Gordon were inspired to create a much better design, bringing together their experience in a much slower-living counter-culture, and the craftsmanship of a mechanical movement. In a very short amount of time, the Marloe Watch Company was born.
Our Marloe Morar Sands Limited Edition is inspired by the striking coastline from Arisaig to Morar, a beautiful part of Scotland. Limited to 250 pieces. The 40mm stainless steel case is gunmetal plated. The subtle curve of the lugs with a lug to lug length of 47.5mm and a thickness of 12.5mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side, a screw-down crown between chamfer-edged crown guards. The uni-directional bezel has deep knurling for extra grip, the top surface has deep engraving marking the dive minutes. A flat sapphire crystal has an AR coating sitting above a sand textured grey dial. An outer minute chapter ring radiates around the outer edge. The hour markers are shaped like bi-valve shells and coated in Super Luminova. The flat baton minute hand has a blue outline complemented by a lollipop sweeping second hand coated in Super Luminova. Text is finely printed in blue at 12 o’clock with “310” at 6 o’clock signifying the watch's water-resistance of 310m/1006 ft which is in fact the depth of Loch Morar. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with engraved waves and the mysterious Morag, a 30 ft creature which through folklore has inhabited the loch for centuries. Inside an Automatic Miyota 9039, 24 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. This movement has hacking and Parashock anti-shock. The watch comes with a 20mm leather and silicone strap with a signed buckle. Comes with its Marloe presentation box and papers.
