The Devil's in the detail
The dial of the Pacific 66 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. The applied indices raise up from the dial surface but, in a unique departure from the norm, the blocks are entirely machined from Superluminova BG-W9. Not only is this a beautifully three-dimensional application of the numerals, but due to the whole block being of luminous compound, it glows with an unmatched intensity.
The dial features a contrasting radial seconds sub-dial, in addition to a railroad track scale skirting the edge. This is all encapsulated in a stealth-like, tri-finish DLC black bespoke case.
The dial features hour blocks machined from solid chunks of superluminova, a contrasting radial seconds sub-dial, in addition to a railroad track scale skirting the edge.
The Pacific's incredible sapphire box crystal has the most stunning refractions, you'll simply never get bored of checking the time.
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.
Our customised Sellita SW216-1 is a manual movement with 24 jewels, running at 28,800 vibrations per hour, adjusted in three positions with a power reserve of 40+ hours.

“I can’t recommend Marloe watches enough and the black Pacific 66 is at the very top end of their range. It was worth it.”
“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.”
“What a design. Fully met my expectations, you simply can't help but keep looking down at your wrist.”
The challenge behind the Pacific was to create a watch that feels fluid, that exudes an effortless approach to a complex design. The Pacific features one unbroken compound curve, signifying flight, the high altitude smoothness and simplicity of jet travel. In contrast, the underside, much like the profile of a wing, is turbulent, a nod to airflow and the engineering of plane design.
The waveform line presented its own challenge: to keep the watch feeling thin and comfortable on the wrist - hence the smoothed scallops that have been scooped out at each corner of the caseback; visually it keeps things trim on the wrist and physically comfortable.
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.
