Limited Edition of 1000 Watches

"Courage is not being fearless" - words spoken while pushing and breaking the boundaries of physics and human endeavour. Donald Campbell was no stranger to challenges of extreme engineering and danger. The Coniston is inspired by its namesake lake, where Donald and his father Sir Malcolm Campbell set numerous water-speed records.

The name Coniston has become synonymous with Donald Campbell’s speed records and his boat, the Bluebird K7. It seemed only fitting that one of our Coniston watches should honour the striking Bluebird boat itself, and its part in these remarkable endeavours. Thus, the Coniston Bluebird was born. Taking its distinctive blue hue from the K7, the Bluebird’s central plateau and outer rehaut stand in contrast to the inset ring of lume which gives the Bluebird exceptional readability in both daylight and darker hours.

A pop of yellow in the form of the second hand and second markers, inspired by the yellow of the Bluebird’s badge and intake covers, add another element of interest to the already striking face. Polished hour and minute hands and applied indices tie together with the case, while giving another subtle nod to the metallic trim found on the K7. As the boat itself proudly sported the British flag, our logo and the words ‘designed in Britain’ are unobtrusively featured on the dial in clean white, completing this most unique and distinctive of watches. The overall feel of the Coniston Bluebird evokes that bygone era of engineering prowess; thoughtfully designed, proudly British, and unwaveringly brave.

One of our favourite young British brands, Marloe watches cannot be matched for great British value

GQ Magazine

Marloe caught our eye for two reasons - one, their care and craftsmanship, and two, their thoroughly reasonable prices


Superb detail without breaking the bank



Every watch is inspired by a story of human endeavour - of people who dedicated their time to something extraordinary.

Their passion, belief and tenacity helped them achieve what others thought was impossible. These were people who challenged themselves, who never took the easy path or cut corners. They knew that nothing worthwhile comes easy and that it’s worth taking the time to do things properly.



A simple philosophy guides everything we do - we take the time to do things properly.

Our mechanical watches are testament to that. We don’t rush them. They’re the product of doing things as expertly as possible, not as fast as possible. We hope that wherever your Marloe watch takes you, and whatever adventures you share, it’s Time Well Spent.
