Watches and Wonders 2023 sees four new models by Speake-Marin

Speake-Marin launches four new models at the ongoing Watches and Wonders fair in Geneva.
Geneva-based watchmaker Speake-Marin’s four new models revealed at Watches and Wonders 2023 promise to bring contemporary architecture balanced with creativity to your wrist. 

The Academic Collection
Speake-Marin seeks inspiration from the opposing forces in Chinese cosmology, yin and yang, for the new Academic Collection. Available in two variations - Academic Black Tie and Academic White - the new models come in two sizes of 38mm and 42mm each. 

Dressed to the nines, the new Academic Black Tie comes with a rich, polished black lacquer dial topped with applied Roman numeral hour markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. Each index is covered in Super-LumiNova and is 0.5 mm tall. The dial also shows a small second counter with a grey chapter ring between 1 and 2 o’clock. The flange includes markings on the grey minutes track every five minutes in orange. The hands are plated in rhodium.

Equipped with the automatic Calibre SMA03 with a fully-integrated micro-rotor, the Academic Black Tie houses a 52-hour power reserve. The movement comes encased in grade 5 titanium with a large, fluted crown and sits on a black leather strap. 

Academic White
Speake-Marin brings the energy of white with the model’s white lacquer dial displaying Roman numeral hour markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. Crafted in matte white with Super-LumiNova, the hour markers are accompanied by a small counter between 1 and 2 o’clock and a grey minute track on the flange – like the Academic Black Tie. The Academic White, too, comes equipped with the automatic Calibre SMA03 and a fully-integrated micro-rotor housed in a round, tubular Piccadilly case – grade 5 titanium – with a large, fluted crown and matching white leather strap.

Temptation collection
The Temptation collection introduces a sporty and chic range of watches – along with a model with the brand’s first-ever steel bracelet called Ripples. The two models, Ripple Blue Jeans and the Ripples Date, feature light, airy designs.

Ripples Blue Jeans
Speake-Marin’s first sports watch in all steel, the Ripples Blue Jeans model comes in a 40.30mm all steel, rounded and square case with a dial featuring three-dimensional horizontal waves in a soothing blue. The dial presents heart/spade-shaped 'Big Ben' rhodium-plated hands and a small seconds between 1 and 2 o’clock in a shade darker than the blue of the dial. Equipped with the Calibre SMA03-T self-winding movement, the Ripples Blue Jeans model houses a 52-hour power reserve.

Ripples Date
Available in a robust steel case with a matching steel bracelet, the Ripples Date model comes with a horizontal waved dial in black in a 40.3mm stainless steel 'La City' case and matching bracelet. 

The dial features a new large date window at 6 o’clock, a small second counter between 1 and 2 o’clock, and heart and spade-shaped rhodium-plated hands. The dial is protected as well as the back with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The Calibre SMA03TD automatic movement with a fully integrated micro-rotor can be admired through the caseback.
