Speake-Marin New Blue Seafire

After the success of the original Blue Seafire launched during Baselworld 2016, Speake-Marin created a new blue edition for its first participation to the SIHH. This model is a limited edition of 28 pieces.

The Spirit Seafire is Speake-Marin’s first chronograph. In addition to the chronograph counters with the minute counter at 12 o'clock and hours at 6, this timepiece features a date display window at 3 o'clock and a seconds wheel at 9 o'clock. In 2015, this model brought new color to its dial parrying red, blue or orange and this year, last year Speake-Marin adds two new dials, one blue et and one white and this year, Speake-Marin launched a New Blue Seafire.

The dial of this Seafire has a sleeker design and plays with the two mains colors, the blue and the red. Indeed, all the indexes and numerals are blue while we can find some touch of red on the hands and on the pushers of the chronograph. The last detail is the blue DLC coating on the case sides. These touches of refinement make it a distinctive symbol of the Spirit collection.
To obtain a greater legibility of the dials, Arabic numbers were chosen for the minutes counter and Roman numerals for the hours counter. Roman numerals are rare on the chronographs dials and this touch of refinement adds another distinctive symbol of the Spirit collection. For these models, as for the rest of Seafire collection, Speake-Marin was inspired by the British military and pilots watches of 60 years ago to make the vintage designs of the chronograph.
The motto of Speake-Marin "Fight, Love & Persevere" is engraved on the case back of each watch. The New Blue Seafire is a limited collection of 28 pieces.
