THE LONDON CHRONOGRAPH
THE CHRONOGRAPH OF A GENTLEMAN !
Limited edition of 33 pieces, the LONDON CHRONOGRAPH was launched in spring 2016 at Harrods, London during the « Made with Love and Precision » campaign.
Very Classic and Elegant, all the « basics » of Speake-Marin are present (The Piccadilly case, crown…) but the surprise for me are these two counters raised above the dial ! Aesthetically, they’re Fantastic. On the left, is the seconds counter and right, the chronograph one. The link between their function can also be made by their colour. Another interesting detail is that the Speake-Marin’s logo in the center moves at the same speed of the hour! which is pretty cool.
The timepiece is powered by the Valjoux 92, a popular chronograph in the 50’s. It certainly brings a vintage touch to the creation and it’s nice to see that nice novelties can still be made with old calibre. The open back allows you to appreciate some wheels and gears and enthusiastic specialists or watchmakers will definitely see major differences such as the column wheel.
Very Well done! Speake-Marin.
