Meeting with renowned Independent Watch Maker, Peter Speake-Marin

On Monday, 13th December, Abel (fellow Malaysia Watch Forum member) and I had the good fortune to meet with renowned independent watch maker, Peter Speake-Marin (Thanks to Abel for making the arrangement). The meeting took place at Khronos Unique Horlogerie Boutique (Adorn Floor, Starhill Gallery). Khronos, which is part of Luxury Concepts, is representing the Speake-Marin brand in Malaysia.

Despite his extremely tight schedule (He was due to fly off later that evening) Peter was really kind to share his passion for watchmaking and his insights into the watchmaking industry. He also took the time to walk us through some of the very unique and exclusive timepieces that he had brought for “A Journey Through Time IV”.

We also learnt that one of his latest creations, the Marine 2 “Thalassa” received the YTL Spirit of Classical Art Award during the event finale. A big congratulations to Peter Speake-Marin.

Below are some photos taken during the meeting. I’m afraid the pictures really don’t do justice to the Speake-Marin timepieces, each of which are truly unique pieces of art.
