Speake‑Marin goes back to the future with Classic HMS

With Classic HMS – Hours, Minutes and Seconds – Peter Speake‑Marin has reinterpreted his very first ‘Piccadilly’ design to create a contemporary timepiece exuding elegant simplicity.

The multi-layered dial of Classic HMS is either silvered with a fine guilloche in the centre and circular grained outer ring, or white-lacquered, setting off the central, sculptured, blued-steel hands and bold Roman numerals. A refined 38mm or 42mm Piccadilly case in stainless steel or 18K red gold houses the automatic winding Eros 2 calibre with long, five-day power reserve.

Peter Speake-Marin had this to say -   “The notions of rediscovery and reinterpretation have been central to Speake‑Marin’s rebirth and these themes were at the forefront of my mind when I designed the Classic HMS.

“I wanted to revisit an early design that was quintessentially Speake‑Marin, a model that was instrumental in developing the Speake‑Marin collection. So I selected a timepiece from the Classic collection that I first presented in 2002, one which takes many of its cues from the first ever piece to bear the Speake‑Marin name, the Foundation Watch.

“Drawing on the design of this early Piccadilly, I started imagining the Classic HMS and I am now delighted to present the finished piece.”
