Marvin Malton 160 Cushion Limited Edition “Toujours Plus” Watch For CoolHunting

Marvin Malton 160 Cushion Limited Edition “Toujours Plus” Watch For CoolHunting

Marvin Malton 160 Cushion Limited Edition Toujours Plus Watch For CoolHunting   watch releases

Apparently CoolHunting.com is on a "limited edition kick," and will offer a few such items. One of them is going to be this highly limited Marvin Malton 160 Cushion "Toujours Plus" watch that will only have 8 pieces. The watches will be available for sale (via CoolHunting I believe), but one of them will be auctioned off to benefit the New York City Animal Rescue (animalhavenshelter.org).

Technically the watch is identical to the current Marvin Malton 160 Cushion three-hand automatic. The difference is in the colors as well as the dial and some text on the watch. The 42mm wide steel case is PVD black with a black and green textured dial. "Toujours Plus" is the French translation of CoolHunting's motto "always more." I wonder if aBlogtoRead.com needs a motto?

Not sure who footed the bill for this project. Probably a joint effort between CoolHunting and Marvin. We are talking about just 8 watches, but the expense is really in the tooling and custom parts. The black and green tones suit the watch well. Still, Marvin was able to put in a red marker in at the 8 o'clock indicator. Inside the watch is a Swiss Sellita SW200 automatic movement. Price for the seven pieces (one will be auctioned off) will be $1,250 - the same price as the basic model. Glad there is no "limited edition premium."

Now I need to get going on some aBlogtoRead.com limited edition pieces. Who would be up for that (I promise no aBtR branding on it!).

I'm a big fan of this piece. The green really works well in my opinion, and I love Marvin's style.

Love this Marvin too - when/where can I buy an M112 in the US?

This is the only blog i read daily so i for one would buy a blog to read ltd watch on the basis that it would probably be well made and an original designed. You could call your brand simply "Ariel", as used by a british 2 seat sports car manufacturer (and one time bike maker)....sounds alot better than ABTR lol.
You could always ask Marvin to build it? This blog has done more to raise their profile worldwide than anything else i've seen, surely they owe you one! Nice design from them too.

This looks pretty cool, especially without usual LE tax.

I guess, aBtR LE of a watch you like would be cool, I even better would be using your knowledge for a collaboration on a new model. Since you handle so many watches, I'd imagine you've developed some sort of a list of things you like or don't like :)

Ariel: if there is no site branding on it, then whatg makes it aBtR ltd?
Maybe you have have 3 chrono dials that look like your "OG" that represent interlocking gears.

This is a pretty attractive edition, this Marvin. I see that they even swapped out the trademark red underside of the strap for green. I take it the hour and minute hands are lumed - is it the same that they use in the regular version coloured green, or have they used something different that glows a more distinct green colour?

Thanks Pete. That is a good point about Marvin. I was actually the first in the US to promote them. As for a special watch.. we will see :)

Yea, coloration is similar.

We will see about doing a watch in the future. The challenges aren't creative, but rather practical, and finding a good brand to work with. The question is, would my readers buy any?

I guess if I did a special watch it would have branding on it, but not on the dial. Probably on the back or something subtle.

I would buy the Marvin featured in the previous article in a heartbeat, the 160 with the black face and the red hands, apparently the production one does not have as much red in the design, and is missing the red hands... Or at least those are the pictures that are up on the resellers websites.

Also where did you get that price, I have been calling around and getting 2-2.4 k prices for the 160 when it comes out.

Engraved into an automatic rotor would be really cool. Or etched into a caseback sapphire.

And yes, I would buy one - finances permitting. So, if you go an develop an aBtR edition of the Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon, I probably would have to just wait until you put one up to win in a monthly contest...

I'm an idiot, the higher price is for the extra complications, this one is just date and not an automatic.
