OUR ODE TO THE SPIRIT OF GREAT BRITAIN
The Haskell Field Standard is a celebration of the spirit of adventure, set right here on our doorstep; in Great Britain. It’s a nod to drizzly mountain treks, muddy wellington boots and escapades carried out not so far from home; from off-roading and seeking uncharted territory with just a compass and a Thermos, to defrosting by the pub fireside.
There’s no need to travel far afield to test one’s endurance; to seek, to find, and to adventure. This very special field watch is our ode to the spirit of Great Britain.
On the 1st November 1911 Captain Robert Falcon Scott set out on the Terra Nova Expedition to reach the South Pole. Eleven weeks later the naval officer became the first British explorer to ever reach the pole, but sadly perished on his return journey.
The world was informed of the tragedy when Terra Nova reached land in New Zealand over a year later. Within days, Scott became a celebrated hero and national icon.
The Haskell was inspired by such British exploration, and is named after the Haskell Strait, the ocean passage which Scott crossed as he set off from Ross Island in Antarctica.
THE BEATING HEART
We have specified the dependable Swiss Made Sellita SW-215-1 manual winding mechanical movement for the Haskell. It’s a petite movement at 25.6mm in diameter, a mere sliver at 3.35mm thick and when fully wound will run for over 40 hours.
Despite this small frame, the SW-215-1 still beats at a brisk 28,800 bph; the running seconds hand moves around the dial at 8 beats per second. Compared to a quartz watch running at one beat per second, the Haskell displays a gloriously buttery smooth sweep to its running second hand. Evidence enough that something special ticks within.
Case backs are our hidden calling card, and we make a big deal about them. For the Field Standard, we have celebrated the glory of the Great British outdoors and the intrepid souls who adventure and explore within it. Featuring an etched compass design on the central dome, encircling the bold engraved emblem of the Field Standard, the case back is immediately striking yet refined; a miniature example of the fundamentals of British design.
Fear of the dark
When night sets in and the ambient light falls, telling the time becomes challenging. The Haskell Field Standard uses BG-W9 luminous treatment to allow you to see in the dark - the numbers around the dial, as well as all 3 hands, glow into the night with an incredible vivid neon glow.

HOW MARLOE BECAME AN ESTABLISHED BRITISH BRAND
In 2015, a simple twist of fate brought together the two founders of Marloe Watch Company. Oliver & Gordon were intrigued by design, the slow-living counter culture, and beautiful mechanical watches - within a year, the first Marloe watch was created, and Marloe Watch Company was born.
Marloe design watches that they’re proud of, made by manufacturing partners who over the years have also become friends. Honest watches made with care and attention - unpretentious, proven quality.
