Classic with a Retro Twist: Mathieu Legrand Marin

Swiss watch manufacturer Mathieu Legrand is known for its extraordinary range of models and designs, which suit every taste. And today we introduce a crowd favourite from the current collection, a model with clear references to diving watches, but without actually being one. For those who are looking for a watch that doesn’t only look the part but is really up to the challenge, Mathieu Legrand offers the ImmergĂ©e, which is designed as a serious tool and comes with a water resistance of 20 atm.

The Mathieu Legrand Marin features a classic, sporty and petty masculine design. The indexes are round except for the ones at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, which are bar-shaped. The date window at 3 o’clock balances the design beautifully. Like the hour, minute and seconds hands, the indices are also equipped with a generous amount of lume, making the watch easily legible, even in the dark. The dial sports various structural details and is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The stainless steel case features a combination of polished and satin finishes for an appealing look. The classic, slightly curved lugs are pleasantly short, so that the Marin can be comfortably worn also on smaller wrists. The case has a diameter of 42 mm and is waterproof up to 10 atm. As mentioned earlier, the Marin is not a diver’s watch; however with 10 atm, nothing stands in the way of swimming or snorkeling.
Mathieu Legrand has equipped the Marin with a beautifully serrated bezel. It is black in every version but in the blue one; in the latter it matches the dial.

The Mathieu Legrand Marin is powered by a reliable, hard working quartz movement.
The manufacturer has fitted the watches with soft, low-maintenance silicone bracelets. And the large selection of models (we especially love the blue one, but the bright orange one also has a lot of charme) should guarantee a favorite for everyone.
