The Devil's in the Detail
The dial of the Pacific 55 has a pillow cross-section - it rises up from the edge of the dial to a central plateau - which makes the dial jump out from the confines of the case. The two-tone gold base with black markings is complemented by gold pips and a sunken sub-dial with radial texture to add more contrast to the smooth, silky dial.
Polished gold applied numerals extend the dimensionality of the dial and create sublime depth, whilst the tri-finish custom tone gold-plated case, a first for MWC, is elegant and very much of the era, and celebrates the dawn of luxury travel with aplomb.
The 55 celebrates a beautiful gold pallet that harks back to the gold watches of the 50s and 60s, and features a radial pattern seconds sub-dial.
The dial features a two-tone bubble dial with polished gold applied markings which fall off the edge of the dial's curvature - a magnificent visual treat.

The Pacific's incredible sapphire box crystal has the most stunning refractions, you'll simply never get bored of checking the time.
The Pacific features our first ever tri-finish case, with polished upper and lower decks, vertically brushed sides and, as a nod to the utilitarian mechanics of the jet age, a frosted surface in each side-aperture.

“The Pacific 55 is my latest Marloe and ‘oh my goodness’ what a delight it is. This watch is simply exceptional in every detail, it exudes class and quality.”
“I wanted a watch in memory of my mother. Therefore, it needed to be good! I am delighted to say that it is even better than I had expected.”
“What a great watch. High quality build and design. People see it and think he must have cost me 10x.”
The challenge behind the Pacific was to create a watch that feels fluid, that exudes an effortless approach to a complex design. The Pacific features one unbroken compound curve, signifying flight, the high altitude smoothness and simplicity of jet travel. In contrast, the underside, much like the profile of a wing, is turbulent, a nod to airflow and the engineering of plane design.
The waveform line presented its own challenge: to keep the watch feeling thin and comfortable on the wrist - hence the smoothed scallops that have been scooped out at each corner of the caseback; visually it keeps things trim on the wrist and physically comfortable.
The case of the Pacific measures 40mm in diameter, a comfortable size for most wrists, and features 20mm lugs - a classic sizing combination. To the peak of the box sapphire crystal the watch has a depth of 12mm, whilst the 47.9mm lug-to-lug sizing complements the case perfectly.
