Founded in 2002 by Peter Speake-Marin, a British master-watchmaker. He graduated from Hackney Technical College in London in 1985. He ran his operation from Bursins Switzerland later in 2019 moving to Geneva. Inside their Creation Studio, they design movements, dials, hands taking inspiration from modern art and their surroundings. In 2017 Peter left Speake-Marin to start a new project in watchmaking education online. Today Speake-Marin SA is owned by the Rosnoblet family, who owns Provencia, a part of the Carrefour hypermarket chain found in the Rhône-Alpes region of France. Christelle Rosnoblet is the CEO of Speake-Marin SA and has been with the company since 2012.
Here we have an exquisitely designed Speake-Marin Serpent Calendar Blue 10006-04 with a 42mm stainless steel case. Screwed in lugs with a lug to lug length of 53mm and a case thickness of 10.5mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. The polished and brushed round case has an onion-style crown. A stepped polished bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal AR coated above a multi-layered white lacquer dial. Large Roman numerals mark the hours. In the center a blued steel disc with the date numerals around its outer edge, an attractive serpent pointer indicates the date. Elegant spade hands complemented by a tapered second hand. On the reverse an exhibition case back with sapphire crystal. Inside an Automatic Hybrid Vaucher 3002, 28 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. This in-house movement has Rhodium plating, a Tungsten rotor, ceramic ball bearing, and circular-grained finishing. The watch comes fitted on its hand-made leather strap with a signed pin-buckle. The watch also comes with its Speake-Marin presentation box and papers.
Speake-Marin is such a fascinating brand creating truly unique watches, I am very surprised this is our first one in stock, I can guarantee it won't be our last! I'm blown away by the overall wearability of this watch, at a first glance you'd think it wouldn't fit nicely on the wrist, but it blows you away! Watches like this are what I believe KibbleWatches is all about!
