The Devil's In The Detail
The dial, matte black, is surrounded by a brushed black-nickel metallic ring, which shimmers through beautiful anisotropic reflections, with a printed minute track in pristine white: simple and effective. On the dial surface, the hour bubbles, varying in size for easy orientation, have a large dot of luminous compound surrounded by a hairline of bright yellow paint.
Bold yellow is deployed in abundance on the rotating chapter ring, with a simple set of black printed numerals on the outer ring defining the timing points. A generous dot of lume adorns the 12 o’clock position, allowing traditional methods of timing to be carried out.
The Solent Timer features proprietary lume on both the dial and hands to aid low light time referencing.
Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is finished with a unique serial number.
Behind the exhibition caseback lies the spectacular engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. This automatic calibre beats at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of 40+ hours.
“One of our favourite young British brands, Marloe watches cannot be matched for great British value”
“Marloe caught our eye for two reasons - one, their care and craftsmanship, and two, their thoroughly reasonable prices”
“Superb detail without breaking the bank”
A SKILLED SAILOR
The Timer's caseback features a chapter ring with the proverb coined by President Franklin D. Roosevelt: “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor”
During our research, on and off the water, we spoke to many a sailor. The Timer is a testament to the unwavering precision and unrivalled style of skilled sailors, embodying their expertise and unyielding dedication to the art of navigation.
The Solent Timer retains the nautical aesthetics and maritime colourways of its predecessor, the Solent, but we’ve made improvements across the board - better sealing screw-down crowns, iterated case design, dial design and new colourways build upon the feedback we’ve received over the years, whilst keeping the rock-solid Miyota powerplant at the heart.
The case size of the Timer is a bold yet eminently wearable 42mm at bezel and, despite the additional complication of an internal mechanism for the chapter ring, remains a surprisingly slender 12mm, with a 22mm strap width.
