Speake-Marin has created a new limited edition of its London Chronograph, which is equipped with the legendary Valjoux 92 Calibre, a popular mechanical hand-wound chronograph movement made during 1950s and 60s. The Valjoux 92 was then a popular chronograph movement, used by some of the largest luxury watch brands such as Patek Philippe, Rolex and Tag Heuer.
Equipped with this well preserved movement, the new edition of London Chronograph is available in a limited series of 15 pieces.
The London Chronograph is housed in a 42mm titanium case with a three dimensional white dial. This is the first time for a Speake-Marin dial to have indexes replaced by letters, spelling “S-P-E-A-K-E”. The dial is in 3 dimensions with 2 floating counters: the red counter measures the chronograph minutes while the white counter on the left-hand side is for the small seconds.
The red colour of the chronograph function is a tribute to sport racing counters, while the blue colour is used for the Hours Minutes Seconds function. At the centre of the dial, the central rotor is shaped like the Speake-Marin symbol and rotates with the hours. This central rotor is engraved with “London” and “Chronograph”, two words that appear at 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock respectively.
