Having made minute repeaters, perpetual calendars, tourbillons and other horological sleights of hand, the most British of Swiss watchmakers presents his first chronograph, Spirit Seafire, a name inspired by another first: the Supermarine Seafire which was the British Royal Navy's first carrier-based airplane. Remarkably distinctive, this masterful composition is set in a new Piccadilly case in titanium. Superbly staged against a mat black dial, the three-dimensional indications feature white Super-LumiNova applications which glow green in the dark for excellent legibility. Roman numerals on the hour counter at 6 o'clock are a rarely-seen detail. Small seconds at 9 o'clock take the form of Speake-Marin's signature "topping tool" logo.
