Originally founded in 2002 by British master watchmaker Peter Speake-Marin, and called Speake-Marin, the brand was purchased in 2012 and is run today by entrepreneur Christelle Rosnoblet. She established a movement workshop to create in-house calibers. Many of the Speake-Marin watches are inspired by the initial creations of Peter Speake-Marin, but continue to evolve. Favorites include the Art Series (with dragons and other sculptures on the dials), chronographs, and Haute Horlogerie creations, including the Vertical Double Tourbillon.
Speake-Marin is a Geneva-based fine watchmaking brand with British roots that founded in 2002. They create, develop, and assemble innovative mechanical timepieces with in-house movements and unique complications.
Speake-Marin proposes beautiful creations for watchmaking connoisseurs who don’t want to see their timepiece on every wrist and prefer to express their individuality. The watches are produced in limited quantities to keep this exclusivity.
In 2015 Speake-Marin initiated a new movement strategy to fully develop and assemble in-house manufacture movements within its atelier in the Neuchâtel area, Switzerland. They have their own creative studio, which designs watches, dials, and hands, as well as takes care of movement finishing and decoration. Speake-Marin’s “Cabinet des Mystères” creates and develops only one-of-a-kind timepieces or limited editions on request.
Speake-Marin finds inspiration for its work in modern architecture and design, reflected in contemporary design for movements and dials, combined with a distinctive timeless case. The brand appeals to watch connoisseurs who want to express their style and individuality with a bold look that distinguishes them from others.
Speake-Marin is a privately owned company based in Geneva, Switzerland. Mrs. Christelle Rosnoblet, an entrepreneur and watch enthusiast, is the CEO since 2012.
