Marvin Malton 160 Rectangular Flying Hour
The is the new Marvin Malton 160 Rectangular "Flying Hour."
Inspired by a 1970s Marvin Jumping Hour timepiece, the new Flying Hour features a jumping hour disc. Instead of displaying the hours with a sweeping hour hand, every 60 minutes a disc instantly jumps ahead to the next hour. Three hours are shown in the aperture in the center of the dial, with a red arrow pointing to the current hour. Minutes and seconds are displayed via their respective subdials at 12 and 6 o'clock.
The 50 mm by 35 mm rectangular polished and brushed steel case houses a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The dial comes in either black or light grey (black version has a circular graining finish). Dual crowns control the hours and minutes separately.
Water-resistance is 50 meters. Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment. Black calfskin leather strap.
