Marloe Cherwell


Coming to KickStarter this month (Jan 2016), Marloe are a new British based watch manufacturer. They’re pretty focused on the fact that the Cherwell is a hand-wind, which to be fair is a nice feature to talk about. It’ll cost £249, and with a double-domed sapphire crystal and  Seagull ST36 movement it should be a good proposition, as long as it’s well built. I’ll be getting it in to review pretty soon, so keep an eye out on WIAA. I personally think it’s nicely designed, so I’m sure it’ll do well. Visit their site here.

Moto Koure MK1


Moto Koure are getting quite a lot of coverage, which is quite surprising considering they’ve only got renderings and no images of the actual watches yet. Kudos to them for getting it out there so early. The MK1 is now available for pre-order direct from their site. It’s available in two versions, an automatic chronograph priced at €699 and a mecha-quartz (Seiko VK) at €229. I think they’re both quite well priced, and the design has a definite style that will appeal to those sporty / racer types.
