A GRAND CRU
A talented designer, a one-of-a-kind color, a high-performing caliber… That’s the rule of 3 for this new powerful-looking model rolled out by the independent brand, in two diameters.
The One & Two Academic Rouge watch by Speake Marin, brought to life through watch designer Éric Giroud’s inspirational imagination, highlights the brand’s desire to offer much more than just a simple staging of time. Here, the judicious choice of a deep hue for the dial expands the realms of possibility. By going for the Pantone 188C color code to be precise, the composition conjures up delicate velvety nuances that enologists love so much. The resulting ruby robe is not unlike that of a renowned wine, one of the musts of French-style art of living. What’s more, the lacquered finish adds an undeniable dash of elegance. On top, four oversized Roman numerals, 12, 3, 6 and 9, topped with potent Billight Super-LumiNova®, enhance the piece’s outstanding personality. Their relief-style along with their streamlined font boosts this look even more. The matte red luminescent paint makes them stand out in the dark. And, the small seconds, off-centered at 1:30, adds a delightful touch of fantasy.
All the hands are driven by the SMA03 caliber. This selfwinding movement equipped with a micro-rotor delivers a power reserve of 52 hours to this charming reference. All these features are hosted in a slender Piccadilly case crafted in grade 5 titanium. And, to make sure the timepiece tailors to everyone’s wrist, it’s available in 38 mm and 42 mm diameters. A gray leather strap attached by a folding clasp sets off the sophisticated look of the One & Two Academic Rouge. To enjoy without moderation!
