This MR01 “Blue Roulette” is part of a 300-piece, limited edition collaboration between Baltic and A Collected Man. A modern watch which takes inspiration from the charm of certain vintage pieces, it brings elements of classical watchmaking into a more accessible context.

Baltic For A Collected Man

Born following a casual conversation over drinks in East London, a collaboration between A Collected Man and Baltic felt natural and exciting. Linked by our shared appreciation for thoughtful design, as well as the importance of balancing contemporary creation with a respect for the past, we’re proud with the result, and look forward to seeing it take on a life of its own.

Founded in 2017 by Etienne Malec, Baltic has since flourished as a micro-brand, creating watches inspired by vintage and neo-vintage examples. Malec founded Baltic after discovering a suitcase of vintage watches his father used to own and developed his passion for the hobby later on. The brand’s name is derived from the Baltic Sea, which borders Poland, where Malec’s father hailed from. Having established themselves for producing unique designs, Baltic hopes to achieve a type of “democratisation” of vintage aesthetics, where beautifully designed watches are more easily accessible to a wider range of individuals.

"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."

Drawing inspiration from early mid-century dress watches, and in particular the Patek Philippe Calatrava reference 96, the MR01 Blue Roulette pays subtle homage to this era. A time when function and form were characterised by elegance and clear lines, this time-only piece brings elements of classical watchmaking into modern conversations. The Blue Roulette is limited to 300 pieces, all of which are individually numbered.
