During the course of our research into the Sceptre's predecessor, the Astro, we found ourselves neck-deep in the history of the Cold War, and the tales of subterfuge, espionage and technological advancement that were part of this simmering conflict between the superpowers that remained after World War II.

The concept of the October takes the soviet arm of this conflict and applies the aesthetic influence from the submarines of that era, as well as referencing the overall aesthetic of concrete, steel and brutalist architecture.

The Devil's In The Detail

The design of the October’s printing on the main dial is different from the other designs, featuring a reticle sight with a subtle gloss print at the cardinal points on the main dial. This mimics the measurement scale of the periscopes used by submarines to remain sub-surface but observe what’s happening above the waves.

A colour scheme of black/brown, vivid orange, brushed steel and glossy white makes this dial a bold but neutral design and, coupled with the orange paint-filled triangle on the bezel and the orange silicone strap, the October has great wrist presence without being garish. Why October? Well, that would be stating the obvious, Mishter Ryan.

The case and bezel are fully matte blasted stainless steel 316L, a marine grade steel to prevent rusting when exposed to the salty atmospheres of coastal operations.

Turbine Bezel

The rifled grip on the bezel gives a subtle nod to our beloved Morar, but takes on an altogether more aggressive stance - looking similar to a turbine inside a nuclear submarine.

MARINE GRADE

The case of the October is matte blasted stainless steel 316L, a marine grade steel to prevent rusting when exposed to the salty atmospheres of coastal operations.

BEATING HEART

Behind the exhibition caseback lies the engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. This automatic calibre beats at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of 40+ hours.

LUME

The Sceptre features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.

Small Batch

Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.

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.

Esquire

Superb detail without breaking the bank.

Aggressive design

The world under the waves is not a place for the light of heart - it’s a dangerous place, obviously, but formidable, challenging, changing and complicated too. Whilst the Solent range was designed to be worn whilst carving through the surf above, the Sceptre has built upon this framework to deliver a watch more capable of surviving in the depths.

Strength Personified

The case of the Sceptre is aggression and strength personified. Reaching 42mm in diameter by 12.65mm tall, it's perfectly sized to have bold wrist presence but wear neatly too. The case has a fully matte blasted finish showcasing the rugged aesthetics of the Sceptre design.
