Speake-Marin has dropped a striking new dual time watch with a mint green open-worked dial and contrasting matte black bridges.
The Dual Time Mint uses an updated version of the brand’s idiosyncratic Piccadilly case, here machined from titanium before being given a black DLC coating.
Centrally mounted, heart-shaped hour and minute hands display the main timezone, while the watch’s second timezone is indicated on a sub dial at the nine o’clock position, using a 24-hour scale and a single arrow pointer. A retrograde date scale also neatly wraps itself around the watch’s small seconds, located at the two o’clock.
Rather than employ the more common approach of concealing the movement behind a dial, the Dual Time’s unusual architecture sees its dial mounted at a level lower than that of its bridges.
The mint green dial is set with circular apertures, revealing the wheels of the proprietary 4Hz SMA02 micro-rotor automatic movement beneath, which also features a 52-hour power reserve.
Both 38mm and 42mm versions are being produced in limited runs of 10 and 18 pieces, respectively, with both secured on color-matched rubber straps, fastened with pin buckles.
The Dual Time Mint is available now via Speake-Marin, with prices starting at $32,0300 USD.
Elsewhere in watches, Franck Muller drops a multi-colored movement in a sapphire crystal case.
