Inspired by British designed nautical charts of the 17th century, The Derwent Nautical has similar markings to that of a compass. We have modernised the look and feel with white markings set on a radiant, metallic blue dial, complemented with a rose-gold case and matching hands.
An interesting feature of this timepiece is that it is the only timepiece from Marloe Watch Comapny that does not feature our logo - as we wanted to retain the style of the 360 degree dial.
The Nautical dial is finished with a pearlescent granular paint to catch the light and bring a shimmering quality. The Nautical also features a naturally tanned, blue calf-skin leather strap with white accents and a Marloe engraved rose-gold buckle.
The Derwent is a watch designed with nods to a few traditional timepieces whilst offering a more contemporary touch. A diameter of 38mm harks back to the dress watches of the 50's and 60's, with the hi-dome custom acrylic crystal also lending itself to the classic aesthetic. The dial is more contemporary with a subtle domed form leading outwards to an angled chapter ring, which draws the eye in towards the dial. The simple pitched profile hands afford the maximum readability whilst continuing the traditional yet contemporary feel. A quick peek at the case-back and you'll find a porthole displaying the balance wheel smoothly oscillating back and forth, keeping accurate time whilst offering a quick visual indicator of your Derwent's current power status.
