When explaining the process behind the design, Oliver Goffe and Gordon Fraser—the duo behind Marloe Watch Company—offered the following:

“Whilst there will always be debate over design decisions, we feel that we’ve managed to create a watch that looks both unique and fresh whilst feeling familiar and recognisable; the constituent parts all working together to form a cohesive piece.”

So, I backed this one. I actually like the look of the dial, especially the black/white version indicated as the stretch goal reward. The crown, whilst being a skosh long to my eye, nevertheless intrigues me with its fluting.

In any case, I've always been fascinated with chronographs and I've decided to collect them from each of the different makers such as Seagull, ETA, and the SII version from Seiko.

If I'm wrong and this one sucks ass, I'll be the first to admit it.
