Marloe Diver

Post by NotEnoughWrists » Wed Sep 11, 2019 7:53 am

Being on the mailing list, had an email for the first dive oriented watch from Marloe.
While the trinket magpie doesn’t seem stirred enough to add to the collection, I quite like the look of the bronze/emerald combo- on the whole my first impression from a sleepy browse from the warmth of the car (the M6 being unusually clear today :shock: ) is ‘it’s ok, but nowt special to look at’. It does look like it has excellent lime potential though?

The M6 clear?? Gotta be a first for everything I suppose :lol:

On to the watch, I like it's looks, but no date. This would actually be going onto my list to buy if it wasn't for that small fact. I really want to own a Marloe, but I need a date. I wanted the Haskell with green dial, but that sold out :thumbdown:

The green Haskell will be restocked in the coming weeks (according to discussions on their Crowdcube page).

I got to work 20 minutes quicker than normal, so was hiding in the carpark to avoid the risk of having to start early :D .
Luckily i go the opposite way to todays M6 fun and games (although i'm heading in that direction very soon :shock: )

Marloe watch

What are Marloe watches like? They look terrific on the Marloe website, of course, but has anyone seen a Marloe watch in the metal?

It's clear we all like different things. :) When I look at the diver, all I can see is a bunch of discordant design elements.

Sorry if that sounds harsh.

Looks like a poor value kickstarter watch, with lume plots applied by a trainee who doesn’t know what a circle is. :)

I own 6 of them- although nothing you can buy from them anymore (3x Cherwell & 3x Lomond). I also previously had a Derwent but found it too small for my liking.
Build quality is good for the price, although i’ve Yet to see the Haskell or Coniston
