The Dart Watch | Marloe Watch Company X Bert & Buoy
This variant is currently sold out
The Dart is the result of a unique collaboration between graphic artist, Bert Fowler, of Bert & Buoy and Marloe Watch Company - an independent designer and producer of wrist watches, created to reinvigorate the world of mechanical timepieces. This is British design at its best. Every detail carefully considered, both inside and out. Together, we’ve created a watch like no other, limited to just 250 pieces. This is Nautical Niceness personified.
This is a limited edition homage to a life lived and loved on the British coast, and the enchanting Devonshire town of Dartmouth, where Bert & Buoy is based. The Dart showcases Bert's beautifully simplistic line work illustration with a boat motif as the centrepiece, and features coordinates of the mouth of the River Dart - the estuary that has made this town a sheltered haven for sailors and land lovers alike.
There are a simple set of markings around the upper ring of the dial, leaving the main dial surface free of any distractions. It brings a wonderful clarity and openness to The Dart that, coupled with the ink-line hands, makes time-telling a cinch. The dial is constructed using 3 layers; the dial surface, flat and spacious, with a slightly recessed colour ring in vivid aquamarine, and a final chamfered upper ring with 1-through-12 and minute markings, both in that same aquamarine and a lighter grey. It’s an exercise in beautiful simplicity.
The inside features the engineering marvel that is the Miyota 9039. A self-winding automatic movement, powered by your every move (no batteries ever required). Respected for its solid reliability and accuracy, the rear of the watch features an exhibition caseback, exposing beautiful and eye-catching decorations as the rotor swings from side to side. Surrounding this visual spectacle is a vivid aquamarine ring with a crisp declaration, celebrating the unique collaboration between British designers; a proud moment in our history.
The Dart is suitable for everyday life at home and at sea - swimming and sailing included. Limited to just 250 pieces, The Dart comes engraved with sequential numbering. This is Nautical Niceness personified.
