In tribute to its 160th anniversary, Marvin has derived creative inspiration from the powerful soul of its timeless watchmaking codes. This elegant, understated and modern timepiece exalts the pleasure of wearing a high-quality watch enriched with horological expertise and yet reasonably priced.
The Malton line is rooted in the brand’s rich history, since the name was registered in 1906 and used in particular for an exclusive Malton collection that earned international fame.
The Malton 160 round variation sets a dynamic tempo for this iconic collection that strikes a perfect balance between upstrokes and downstrokes, varied levels and complementary surface treatments. The flowing lines compose a refined and pared-down architectural design.
The four models in the new line all exude the same spirit conveyed through the beautiful simplicity of the round case, the elegance of the broad dial opening, the understated decoration, and the refined manner of interpreting the four movement variations.
Two creative talents are behind this watch. Firstly, the Neuchâtel-born designer Sébastien Perret, who has accompanied all the Marvin collections since the brand was reborn. He embodies the passion of a confirmed talent, displaying technical mastery mingled with an almost “physical” approach to watchmaking that leads him to draw his models by hand throughout the design phase, before proceeding to the indispensable computer modelling processes. And secondly, the repeatedly recognised experience of Jean-François Ruchonnet, a name well known among collectors for his successful career, which has included numerous creations for prestigious fine watch brands.
This newcomer to the Marvin collection is interpreted through four variations: one with a Dubois Dépraz 14070 movement, a high-end watch with a regulator-type display; another powered by an ETA 2897 movement with power-reserve display; a third with an SW 200 three-hand movement with date display; and finally a model driven by a Ronda 7004B quartz movement with two hands, small seconds and a large date display.
Produced in the finest watchmaking workshops, the Malton 160 round watches are water-resistant to 50 metres and guaranteed for two years.
