Join the revolution

In a world where round watch faces have long dominated the market, there's a refreshing rebellion brewing in the world of horology. Enter the Marloe Astro, a square watch that's as much a statement piece as a timepiece. If you've been hesitant about straying from the norm, let us guide you through the tumultuous world of square watches and why they're not only cool but a must-have accessory for any fashion-conscious individual.

Breaking the Mould

There's an undeniable allure to breaking away from the ordinary, and square watches do just that. They defy convention, instantly drawing attention with their unorthodox shape. The Astro, in particular, takes this boldness to new heights with its sleek, geometric design that exudes confidence and daring!

Yet while square watches may seem like a departure from tradition, they actually have a rich history dating back to the early 20th century. Iconic timepieces like the Cartier Santos and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso have long showcased the timeless elegance of square designs; however, the Astro infuses this classic style with a modern twist - a contemporary design for those who appreciate both heritage and innovation.

Inspired by the Space Race

What sets the Astro apart is its captivating source of inspiration—the Space Race. Drawing from all things interstellar and the nostalgia of the vintage box TVs that broadcast the moon landings, the Astro collection pays homage to humanity's fascination with the cosmos. This celestial influence is evident in every aspect of the watch, from its angular silhouette to its cosmic dial designs, making it a true collector's item for enthusiasts of both horology and space exploration.

There are some great easter eggs in there too - look out for the orange XI on the Steller and Futura models, the corner reticles printed on the underside of the crystal, and - if you missed it - the Soyuz capsule inspired crown, with more besides.  

Stand Out from the Crowd

In a sea of circular dials, wearing a square watch is an instant conversation starter. It sets you apart from the crowd, showcasing your individuality and discerning taste. With the Marloe Astro adorning your wrist, you're not simply telling the time, you're making a statement about who you are and what you value.

The beauty of a watch like the Astro is the ability to dress it up for a formal event, think Notched Tan Leather, or keep it casual for Sunday brunch, more Orion Blue Velcro. This watch is a chameleon and it loves to change its colour!

Beyond its striking appearance, the Astro is a testament to exceptional quality. At the heart you have the Miyota 9039 automatic mechanical movement - a bullet-proof and consistent calibre - which is surrounded by a bespoke case, deliberately designed to protect the movement, as well as sapphire crystals, and Parashock anti-shock. This watch is durable and reliable. When you invest in a Marloe Astro, you're not just purchasing a watch, you're investing in a legacy of excellence.
