A unique square-cased automatic watch with sapphire crystal, exhibition caseback and dual-finished case.


The Futura brings us to the present phase of space endeavour, with reusable rockets and futuristic space capsules. The Futura embodies the future of space travel, from Space-X, Blue Origins and Virgin Galactic, to returning to the Moon and outwards into our Solar System. Subtle references to the pioneers of the past, and some popular culture references hidden in there too, the Futura is a bright, modern take for the bright modern future of space endeavour.

The Devil's in the detail

The honeycomb textured upper is a subtle reference to the pentagonal tunnel down which Dr. David Bowman walks down in Stanley Kubrick's inimitable film “2001: A Space Odyssey”. The polished ring leads down over the chamfered Roman numeral track, again with XI highlighted in orange, before a deep blue minute track with white printing leads into the multi-angled white dial. Applied steel hardware, matching hands and, for the Futura a white painted seconds hand with orange tip and orbital counterweight. All hands feature the same luminous compound as the two reference dots at 12 o’clock.


Through the ages we, as onlookers, have watched with palpable excitement as pioneers break through the barriers of expectation and blaze, unshackled, towards unprecedented human achievement. In the case of the Space Race, most watching were not local to the epicentres of cosmic engineering, only able to see these historical moments through the medium of newspapers and live television.

From watching news broadcasts announcing the success of Sputnik 1, Yuri Gagarin’s orbit, the Apollo 11 moon landings, Space Shuttle Challenger and Columbia disasters and onwards, through the modern era to Space-X launching reusable spacecraft and Felix Baumgartner throwing himself out of a balloon at the edge of our atmosphere - we’re all glued to screens to witness these moments for ourselves.

Great design and thought has gone into this watch - attention to detail, price bracket, and build quality is way above any other Micro brand on the planet.

I don’t usually like square watches, but this one has totally won me over - it’s beautiful, classy and stylish. The quality is superb and quite unbelievable at this price

The impressive and unconventional Astro Futura is out of this world! How on Earth do those Lunatics at Marloe do it for the money Heaven knows, but long may they continue.

The Astro's case is not a square, but a squircle - a mathematical quirk in which every side of our “square” watch is subtly curved - a squared circle - with inspiration found in an unlikely place.

The case of the Astro features a lugless design, measuring 38x38mm with recessed strap mounts hidden within the case. Keeping things surprisingly thin, the case features a tri-texture finish and a modest 10.65mm thickness.
