The Devil's in the Detail
The dial of the Pacific 52 has a pillow cross-section - it rises up from the edge of the dial to a central plateau - which makes the dial jump out from the confines of the case. Designed with a classic 'of the era' aesthetic in mind, it takes colouring from the brushed metal fuselages, cowlings and apertures and adds a subtle salmon highlight. The central plateau is a sandpaper texture with beautiful applied polished numerals. Classic, restrained and beautiful.
The Pacific features our first ever tri-finish case, with polished upper and lower decks, vertically brushed sides and, as a nod to the utilitarian mechanics of the jet age, a frosted surface in each side-aperture. Combined, these three finishes create a spectacular, ever-changing case.
The dial features elegantly applied numerals around the dial finished in polished salmon.

“The Pacific range is undoubtedly Marloe's finest to date. Great design, vintage vibe with a modern twist. Will get a lot of wrist time. Worth every penny. Very happy customer.”
“Oliver & Gordon have created something truly timeless and rather special with the Pacific ‘52. Really such an achingly elegant and beautifully engineered timepiece.”
“What a design! It’s unique to the period, with attractive detailing alongside an essence of simplicity. To be the owner of such an elegant timepiece was worth every penny.”
The Pacific 52 draws on the de Havilland Comet for it's inspiration - the world's first commercial jet liner to cross the pacific and circumnavigate the globe - an airplane that changed aviation for good. The Comet was designed with an aerodynamically clean design and turbojet engines buried in the wings, not to mention a pressurised cabin and square windows.
But it was the lavish lifestyle that caught the public's imagination - entrance lobbies, powdering rooms and multiple feet of legroom - the 52 is our ode to this super-fast, elegant form of travel.
The Pacific is all about the detail - whether it's the fluid tri-finish case, elegant applied numerals around the dial, the gentle sweeping hairline seconds hand, or the incredible sapphire box crystal with the most stunning refractions, you'll never get bored of checking the time.
We hope that translates when you first wrap the Pacific around your wrist and feel what the very best of watch design and manufacture can offer - much like the first flight in the de Havilland Comet in 1952 - this is our version of the sumptuous opulence that bespoke design can give.
The case of the Pacific measures 40mm in diameter, a comfortable size for most wrists, and features 20mm lugs - a classic sizing combination. To the peak of the box sapphire crystal the watch has a depth of 12mm, whilst the 47.9mm lug-to-lug sizing complements the case perfectly.
