Marloe Watch Company is an independent designer and producer of wrist watches based in Oxfordshire, England, owned by Oliver and Gordon. Having crossed paths in the spring of 2015, they created Marloe to reinvigorate the world of hand-wound timepieces.
Oliver turns the cogs; from production to logistics, accounts to marketing, he oversees the running of the company to make sure everything is going smoothly, and dabbles in the odd sketch from time to time. Gordon is the designer; from design seed to video production, manufacturing to photography; Gordon controls all design work and visual output.
Taking their name from the town of Marlow, close to where Oliver grew up, the company’s values are strongly bound to tradition and design. And it's these values, along with a passion for timepieces, that inspired the creation of beautiful watches powered by manual, mechanical movements.
As watches get smarter, and lives more complicated, there is a movement embracing the slow-living counter culture, going back to the simple things, celebrating tradition. So as the technology brands fight it out over who makes the smartest watch, Marloe is proudly going against the grain to create the most traditional of all watches - the hand-wound timepiece.
