London Chronograph Triple Date

Speake-Marin 2021

ref. 514208010
Men's

Chiming with the ongoing vintage trend, Speake-Marin has produced a limited edition of 15 watches, each powered by a Valjoux 88 movement fromj1953. One of the best-loved calibres from the first half of the twentieth century, this manual-winding, double-pusher, column-wheel Chronograph ticks a lot of boxes. As well as the central chronograph hand, there is a small seconds subdial at 9 o’Clock, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and, between the two at 6 o’clock, moon phases. This pleasing symmetrical arrangement is completed by a triple date display with date shown by a central hand, plus day and month in separate apertures. The retro-style dial in grey, black and blue (colours borrowed from 1950s racing cars) succeeds in showing a lot of information in a clearly legible format. The case, in titanium, is the timelessly elegant Piccadilly in a 42mm diameter.
