In 2015, a simple twist of fate and a curious email brought together the two founders of Marloe Watch Company, Oliver and Gordon. Both were intrigued by design, the slow-living counter culture, and beautiful mechanical watches - within a year, the first hand-wound Marloe watch was created, and Marloe Watch Company was born.
From their iconic hand-wound ranges to their very first automatic watch, the Morar diver, the common root of every design lies in quality and originality; fusing tradition with unique thinking and inspiration. In a world fixated on disposable tech and ever-upgrading smart-watches, Marloe watches are designed to be a refreshing, heirloom-quality option at a unique price point.
Taking their name from the town of Marlow in Buckinghamshire, where Oliver grew up, the company is built upon two key values, rooted deeply within both founders’ lives; honesty and integrity. Marloe Watch Company ensure that these values are at the heart of the brand, and this, paired with a passion for design and tradition, inspires the creation of beautiful watches powered by 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.

Casebacks are our hidden calling card and we make a big deal about them. For the Black Edition we have celebrated the people of the Terra Nova Expedition and referenced, with subtlety, the human endeavour of the crew. In the centre of the domed surface is our take on the mission patch logo; a penguin standing atop the earth.
Our penguin is looking outwards now towards 5 stars - each one representing a fallen explorer from the pole party. Around the perimeter are 60 dots, each one representing a crew member of the ship and shore teams.
