The MR01 Blue Roulette; a watch inspired by vintage classics retold in a contemporary narrative. This new release is limited to just 300 watches.
"We are very delighted to work with A Collected Man on this collaboration as we share common values, such as the quest for aesthetics and the dedication to vintage watch culture."
"We’ve always admired Baltic’s amazing value proposition. Great taste married with accessible horology. We're delighted to be working together."
DESIGNED IN LONDON AND PARIS
We sat down with Baltic’s Founder, Etienne Malec, and Creative Director, Jas Rewkiewicz to discuss the inspiration behind the new model and its finer details.
Based in Paris and London respectively - both cities steeped in style, culture and horological history - they talk about the vintage watches that inspired the MR01 Blue Roulette and the design process behind it.
Discover the inspiration and details that modernise it, along what we love most about the watch.
"With a lot of modern watches, the dials are very flat. We were inspired by old sector dials, with multiple layers and textures. A lot of the modern versions play off a very similar design but the roulette is very different in that way. It feels like something you discover when you’re already into sector dials which is super fun and interesting."
"Take the flat four, originally designed for optical clarity back in the day when printing techniques were not precise. It has now sadly disappeared from modern typography so we developed this font exclusively for this watch, to add in details that matter to us."
