Re-entry Orange Rubber

The Futura brings us to the present phase of space endeavour, with reusable rockets and futuristic space capsules. The Futura embodies the future of space travel, from Space-X, Blue Origins and Virgin Galactic, to returning to the Moon and outwards into our Solar System. Subtle references to the pioneers of the past, and some popular culture references hidden in there too, the Futura is a bright, modern take for the bright modern future of space endeavour.

 

All of our watches are made in small batches - the First Edition production run for the Astro Futura is 300 pieces, numbered from 0001 - 0300. We'll ship the next available number unless you have a specific request - if so, please get in touch.

The Devil's In The Detail

Following on from the Hadfield, the Futura features the same construction but rendered in opposing white with blue accents.

The honeycomb textured upper is a subtle reference to the pentagonal tunnel down which Dr. David Bowman walks down in Stanley Kubrick's inimitable film “2001: A Space Odyssey”. The polished ring leads down over the chamfered Roman numeral track, again with XI highlighted in orange, before a deep blue minute track with white printing leads into the multi-angled white dial. Applied steel hardware, matching hands and, for the Futura a white painted seconds hand with orange tip and orbital counterweight. All hands feature the same luminous compound as the two reference dots at 12 o’clock.

SPACE ODYSSEY

In Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the lead protagonist Dr. David Bowman walks down an octagonal tunnel - white, brightly lit; cutting edge set design for its era. We took this as inspiration for the hexagonal pattern for the top surface.

Dial Details

The polished ring leads down over the chamfered Roman numeral track, again with XI highlighted in orange, before a deep blue minute track with white printing leads into the multi-angled white dial.

Case

The Astro is presented in a stainless steel case that is neither a square nor circle, but a squircle. Featuring a subtle curved quirk in every side of the Astro’s “squared” face - truly unique.

BEATING HEART

Behind the exhibition caseback lies the spectacular engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. This automatic calibre beats at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of 40+ hours.

Lume

The Astro features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.

Small Batch

Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.

Great design and thought has gone into this watch - attention to detail, price bracket, and build quality is way above any other Micro brand on the planet.

I don’t usually like square watches, but this one has totally won me over - it’s beautiful, classy and stylish. The quality is superb and quite unbelievable at this price

Alan L.

The impressive and unconventional Astro Futura is out of this world! How on Earth do those Lunatics at Marloe do it for the money Heaven knows, but long may they continue.

THE SPACE RACE

The Astro series is inspired by the race to space, starting with the catalyst for the race, the cold war, and ending in the present. Each model represents an important phase, not just in the technological advancement and achievement of putting humans into orbit, but also human advancement, in our attitudes and outlooks.

LUGLESS DESIGN

The case of the Astro features a lugless design, measuring 38x38mm with recessed strap mounts hidden within the case. Keeping things surprisingly thin, the case features a tri-texture finish and a modest 10.65mm thickness.
