Independent watch maker Peter Speake-Marin
releases his newest highly limited timepiece - the 1in20 QP. A limited edition of literally just a few pieces - several of which are 'piece uniques.' The watch houses his manufacture made calendar movement with the time, month, day, date, and moon phase. I do not believe the watch is a perpetual calendar. The "1in20" name refers to the fact that the watches will be the first 20 to house Speake-Marin's new SM2 Caliber automatic movement. I am glad that it is not manually wound, given these types of complications. Using the now well regarded Peter Speak-Marin watch case, size is at about 40mm wide and in either 18k white or rose gold.
While the case is impressive and has a nice sapphire crystal caseback, the dial of the watch is classic looking and beautiful. The dial is made from German silver (not actually silver but a type of nickle alloy) and enjoys a thoughtfully laid out dial and guilloche machine engraving decoration. Blue SuperLumiNova sits on the hands and hour marker points for darkness glowing. A supremely classy watch with an in-house movement and hand made quality. Prices...will be up there.
