Speake-Marin Resilience Watch - Inspired by Horological Greats

Oct 18, 2012
The world of watchmaking welcomes the new Speake-Marin Resilience watch. The novelty boasts an oven-fired, white enamel dial and the signature Piccadilly case that houses an automatic Eros 2 movement offering a five-day power reserve.

The white enamel dial is graced by blued-steel hands and refined Roman numerals. The slim Piccadilly case is fashioned in stainless steel or 18K red gold.

The pure, bright white enamel dial has been inspired by the antique pocket watches Peter Speake-Marin used to restore when he worked for a prestigious restoration house in Piccadilly, London. The dial will maintain its youthful freshness for centuries the same as the dials of the antique pocket watches that were over a hundred years old, it will never tarnish or change its look, forever keeping its beauty.

The brands specialists enameled both sides of the copper dial base to guarantee an even tension within the construction of the material. They manually applied enamel powder and put the copper dial base in the oven at 800C temperatures to make the powder melt into an even coating on the copper surfaces. They repeated this procedure five times. Then, the watchmakers printed the highly legible Roman numerals in black enamel.

The unique look of the new Speake-Marin watch is completed by the heat-blued hands and a small blued steel screw found in the lower part of the dial. These two features have been inherited from the Foundation Watch, the first timepiece crowned by the Speake-Marin name.

The Piccadilly case has been constructed with the distinctive pleated crown and screwed lugs. The face is shielded by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. If compared to the original Piccadilly case developed by Peter Speake-Marin over a decade ago, now the case has become much slimmer it is 12mm high and measures 38mm or 42mm in diameter. The new design has become possible due to the new Eros 2 caliber.

The 35-jewel automatic winding movement, operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a long, five-day power reserve. It has been constructed with the signature Speake-Marin mystery rotor. The movement is visible via the sapphire crystal case-back treated with anti-reflective coating.

The new Speake-Marin Resilience watch is presented on a hand-made, natural alligator leather strap fitted with a pin buckle in stainless steel or 18K red gold. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.
