Peter Speake-Marin Is Back with Homage watches?

Postby koimaster » June 20th 2018, 11:21am

A few years ago, when you mentioned the name Peter Speake-Marin, you probably had in mind an independent watchmaker with creativity and complex watches – such as a fully-opened tourbillon minute repeater… This was before Peter sold his company and left to become someone else, independent again. After starting a unique concept named “The Naked Watchmaker”, Peter Speake-Marin is back in the watch game with something truly unexpected: affordable watches. Meet Stoic World.

This idea might sound truly different from the image we had of Peter Speake-Marin. Behind the creation of Stoic World is again this wish of independence so dear to Peter. The name of this new venture is based on the antique Greek philosophy of Stoicism, “a way of thinking, a philosophical view founded in Greece 300 BC. The principle? Individual happiness based on temperance and detachment achieved through reason.” The founders, among whom is Peter, share different backgrounds and cultures and come from London, Paris and Hong Kong. A far cry from the PSM watches you’ve seen in the past, they are not made in Switzerland, they don’t have in-house movements but they will be offered at very reasonable prices. Times change, drastically.

And what he used to make - I believe IWB has a Speake-Marin.

Mr. Speake-Marin is kind of late with that, April 1st was quite a while ago.

Looking at these hommidges, it seems almost unfair to bash the Kickstarter micros - a lot of them make watches far better than that. Well, at least looking better. Just look at that logo. Aaaaarghhh! Fuck! What is that? And that quote on the transparent case back... I can feel the salad that I ate earlier today moving up my esophagus. By Jove!
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
