The Marvin Watch Sebastien Loeb watch has been officially launched. I have to say that the watch looks good. There are basically two versions, the automatic chronograph and the quartz chronograph. The watch, designed by Marvin Watch in collaboration with Sebastien Loeb has a number of rally inspired aspect infused into the watch.
The chronograph push buttons looks like the pedals of the rally car as is the dial design. The dial is inspired by the instrument panel of a rally car, thus providing an easy read of the time. The other interesting design is the articulating watch lugs. It is mounted with spring suspensions. This is indicate how important the suspension is to the rally car as it keeps the car on the road. Just like the car, this lugs are important and the design allows for a comfortable wear.
The watches, available in either black or white dial is a limited edition watch of only 777 (Sebastien being 7 times Rally Champion) pieces. The watch is large, coming in at 44 mm. The automatic version is powered by the popular and robust ETA 7750 while the quartz is powered by a Swiss quartz movement. Both versions offers the following functionalities; hours, minutes, seconds, chronograph and date. Only the automatic version offers the day complication.
Both versions of the watch will carry Sebastien Loeb's signature and the inscription 'World Rally Champion'. The retail price for the watches are USD 2.520 for the automatic and USD 970 for the quartz. For more information:
