    Soon available: Marine 36 Small Second

    Thanks so much for the review and photos, @Mike2. I’ve been interested in marine/deck watches for a long while, especially with small seconds. But with my 6.5” wrist, 6498 versions are too big (often >41mm and a big lug-to-lug) and smaller versions had central seconds, which doesn’t look as cool or nostalgic to me.

    This one looks like it checks all of my boxes. The top grade is icing. I might just pull the trigger from your post alone!

    I agree that even at only 36mm, the central seconds models were just missing the mark for me (even though I have admired the wrist shots from others). There was too much negative space for a dial that is so intensely white for my taste. The seconds subdial brings everything into balance for me. Yes an all-dial, white 41mm watch seems very overwhelming for our small wrists. I am very sensitive to a watch wearing just a bit too large and I was a little nervous that this watch might seem a little large being all dial, but it is so unassuming and it's presence is pleasantly neutral. It doesn't feel big or small to me, it just feels right. I actually sold my black dial Partitio a few years ago because the combo of dial and lugs made the 37mm watch wear slightly too large for comfort.

    Now that's a thick strap!

    What's your wrist size, for reference?

    All these photos look great. I can't wait for mine to arrive. I have a nice blue leather strap coming to join it.

    I think 6.5 last time I measured. Yea the mesh is thick but still not as thick as Staib mesh.

    Speaking of which, I can now confidently say the mesh is not from Staib (I have 20mm Staib). It was always a mystery to me last time haha

    Looks great! Congrats and enjoy!

    I’d be curious to see it on that blue cordovan strap.

    Damn that looks slick! I have a Marine Classic small hands on my wish list and keep going back and forward on it as I hear the case scratches easily? Anyone have experience with that?

    Either way, thats a beautiful setup you have there.

Short version of my first impression: it is exactly what I wanted it to be and I’m incredibly happy with it.
