ONE & TWO
A WONDERFUL MICRO ROTOR AT SPEAKE-MARIN !
Introduced at the SIHH 2017, the ONE & TWO timepieces are very interesting… With a micro rotor over the brand logo and the barrel at 5 o’clock, the dial is very enjoyable visually and well balanced in terms of proportions.
I wrote « timepieces » (in plural) because a Red Gold and Titanium versions are available (in 38 or 42 diameter). Perhaps it justifies the name « ONE & TWO »…
Anyways, the overall concept and execution is Beautiful! The dial is modern and represents the world of Peter Speake-Marin. Some fine details were modified on the Piccadilly case. For instance, there is less space between the straps and the case and the crown was redesigned in a « softer » way.
The Calibre SMA01 is Superbe! and we definitely support the open dial choice. The small seconds hand (at 2 o’clock) is however quite original by its location just above the balance wheel (on the other side of the piece).
It’s always a matter of taste… but in our opinion, the ONE & TWO timepices have everything to become a bestseller.
Well done! SPEAKE-MARIN.
