Marvin watches has released two new versions of their Sebastian Loeb collaboration watches with these two new pieces, one being a limited edition. Not just mere color changes, these have different, more refined dials and a great sporty look. These are the best looking Marvin Loeb Rally Collection watches yet in my opinion. I wrote about the original Marvin Loeb collection here.
Using the top-level models with the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic movements, these are offered as two sets of watches with either a red trim or yellow trip. The red trimmed model will be a limited edition of just 88 pieces. As is the case with all Marvin watches, the 8 o'clock out indicator is specially indicated. Loeb's signature is applied on the dial under the day/date window for those who need some rally driver reassurances on a regular basis.
The watches each come in 44mm wide PVD black steel cases. The Loeb case shape remains the same with its neat chronograph pushers and spring mounted moving lug structure. The back case and mostly black dial work well together. I like that the dials have been revamped and look more refined. The larger hour indicators are a big plus, and they are coated with SuperLumiNova. The newly blackened hands look nice in the renderings. You'll also notice how the chronograph subdials have been tastefully redesigned.I wonder if these would look even better with black discs for the day/date windows.
The cases are 100 meters water resistant and have sapphire crystals. For these version Marvin uses black rubber straps. Which is an upgrade I believe from some of the previous polyurethane straps from before. The red trimmed limited edition Marvin Loeb Rally Collection watch will be limited to 88 pieces, while I believe that the yellow trimmed model will not be limited. Both will be available on Marvin's eShop. Price is $3,820 each.
