If you’re reading this, you already know that a watch is more than just a mere timepiece.

It’s imbued with seconds, hours, days, years and indeed lifetimes of stories. And while Marloe Watch Company may be a mere five years old, its uniquely British pedigree has won plenty of admirers – creating watches that people use as a conduit for memories.

It all started back in 2015 when marketeer Oliver Goffe emailed watch designer Gordon Fraser with a simple but brave idea to make well-made, accessibly priced mechanical watches.

Countless exchanges and hundreds of design hours later, their first concept watch, named after the River Cherwell that flows through Oliver’s native Oxford, was born. Then came the Kickstarter that changed everything.

Having set themselves a target of raising £30,000 to begin production on the Cherwell, contributions from 932 people raised some £179,194, and Marloe Watch Company was up and away.

In the intervening years, they have created several diverse watch collections, each taking its name from bodies of water in Britain and further afield, with each model named after an iconic British person or achievement.

The Coniston

It was Coniston Water in the Lake District where Donald Campbell sadly lost his life having achieved a world-record water speed of 320mph in the Bluebird K7 in 1967.

This story of bravery and tragedy is captured in the Coniston collection – with one model dedicated to Donald’s Bluebird K7 boat, which features a quote from Donald on the reverse “Courage is not being fearless”.

Designed for the depths, at home in the heights. Inspired by Loch Morar, the deepest body of water in Britain, this collection is designed to endure the harshest conditions. With models including Emerald, Black and Deep Blue, the Morar manages to find beauty in the bold with nary a frill in sight.

Marloe Watch Company – The Haskell watch

The Haskell

In 1911, Robert Falcon Scott became the first Brit to reach the South Pole, only to perish on his return journey. This Swiss-made collection for the modern adventurer is named after the Haskell Strait, which Scott crossed to get to Antarctica.

Marloe’s goal was to create a modern day adventurer’s watch; something that could be worn everywhere. A watch that is robust enough to withstand the daily rigours of the modern traveller and elegant enough for the urban adventurer.

It really has everything it needs to accompany you every step of the way; as you bustle through the daily commute or trek over the next peak. It’s ready to serve.
