    Default New Speake Marin Spirit...Fight, Love & Persevere

    Another new one from the house of Speak-Marin.
    It looks good to me, classic elegance.
    Still wish the topping tool would disappear from the dial though.
    It will be interesting to see the price range.

    Yes Mate, I think with the new case size and dial design they look so much better in Pink gold than in Stainless steel.
    The silver and red of the gold go so well together.

    Saw this Unique Marin 1 "1 in 20" on the bay, it's an absolute steal for someone with the money!

    Default New Speake Marin Spirit...Fight, Love & Persevere

    Spirit: Fight, Love & Persevere
    The new Spirit sees Peter Speake‑Marin revisit the popular Spirit Pioneer and redesign it from the ground up.
    The Spirit Mark 2 retains the distinctive identity of the Pioneer, but has a new movement, dial and case.
    What remains the same, however, is the message that Spirit conveys. True to its name, the Spirit Mark 2 retains the original’s rousing – and resonant – call to action through the inspirational motto “Fight, Love & Persevere” engraved on the case-back.
    New dial
    The new Spirit’s three-dimensional, one-piece dial features refined numerals and hour markers in white Super-LumiNova that contrasts superbly against the light-absorbing matte black. The resulting indications are eminently legible and present a fresh, clean sophistication.
    New case and bezel
    The dial of the Spirit Mark 2 is beautifully framed by a hand finished circular grained bezel. This finishing enhances the casual, contemporary style for which the Spirit is known, as does the new, slim 42mm stainless steel case with solid case-back.
    New movement
    The Spirit Mark 2 is also endowed with a new unidirectional, automatic-winding movement, with a long, five-day power reserve.
    Same inspirational message
    Turning the Spirit Mark 2 over, the centrally engraved Speake‑Marin ‘topping tool’ motif catches the eye. However, it is the inspirational rallying cry engraved just below that – “Fight, Love & Persevere” – that steals the attention, upholds the new Spirit’s name and confirms its credentials as the perfect talisman.


    Peter Speake‑Marin says:
    “The themes of determination, tenacity and love were close to my heart when I created the Spirit series.
    “Having travelled around all four corners of the globe, I have seen that these themes resonate with many different people in many different cultures.
    “Spirit seems to express a universal sentiment and so it was important for me to carry this, the essence of the Spirit, over from the Spirit Pioneer and into the Spirit Mark 2.
    “I have therefore retained the ‘Fight, Love & Persevere’ motto from the Spirit Pioneer, but have engraved it even larger on the new Spirit case-back to reinforce the powerful message.”

    That looks great, although I think I prefer the depth of the old one :-)
