Morar - Beacon

  • PRE-ORDER ITEM ***Shipping Mid-Late October***

    When diving at depth, the daylight that filters through the water surface becomes dimmer and dimmer very swiftly as one descends. Visual markers become less obvious, and eventually one is faced with a blank wall of darkness. In huge expanses of water, it’s easy to become disorientated. Marking the way, and making others aware of your location, is imperative; and a beacon – be it of light, or satellite in nature – is an essential piece of kit for any diver. The Morar Beacon is our take on this object’s interaction with its surroundings; the vibrant pop of orange bordering the minute hand shining in contrast to the blue grey depths of the dial.

    The dial markings are inspired by the shape of shells. The cardinal points all reference bi-valve shells, with the “12” marking being a slightly different shape that is repeated on the bezel pip for continuity. Around the dial you’ll see the deeply engraved bezel showing a 60-minute countdown timer, which can be rotated to the minute hand, giving a 60-minute window of reference.

    With anti-magnetic protection, the ability to withstand depths of 310 metres, carefully-engineered crown and case design and exceptional readability, the Morar is the perfect choice both for diving enthusiasts and those more comfortable on land who simply want a long-lasting, durable, and unique dive watch.

The Spirit of the Loch

Loch Morar is situated on the North Western coast of Argyll & Bute and is a stone’s throw away from Mallaig; the main port for the small isles and Skye. The loch itself is incredibly long and vastly deep, fed with fresh water from the mountains that surround it.

One inhabitant has traversed the ages and remains to this day a mystery; Morag, as she’s affectionately known, is said to have lived in this loch for centuries. It is said that Morag is around 30 feet long, with rough skin and three dorsal humps, and we can’t help but be enamoured by this creature of folklore. So much so we placed her on our caseback.

Perseverance

For a project spanning over 3 years, the Morar certainly should be old news to us. Yet each time we look at it we are filled with excitement, for we have created our very first dive watch, and it’s a beautiful thing.

So we give you the Morar - we hope you like it.

The Devil's in the Detail

The dial surface features a sand texture, a nod to the sea-bed and has a radially brushed ring around the outside, with more accurate minute markings. The MWC logo is raised off the sand, and the “310” logo is a beautifully domed, glossy bubble that catches reflections.

Numbers with Meaning

The Morar comes engraved with sequential numbering, so you know exactly which Morar you have. You can either select your number above, or if you would like to enquire into a specific number please don't hesitate to ask.

Fear of the Dark

The hour markings of the Morar mimic a simplified whorl shell. The biggest reason for these shapes was to give us the maximum real estate for luminous compound. Lume works on a density principle; the more of it there is, the brighter and more long-lasting it is. We wanted the best of both these features and so have created a multi-printed marking that lasts longer than any luminous compound we have seen.
