Free Car Mag are spiritually and stylistically Mod. We might have an old oily Bike like a Rocker but we do crave a Lambretta to go with our sharp three piece suits. To top it all off though we do need to have just the right timepiece. Here’s one we can go out and buy so that it can poke out beneath our William Hunt shirt. It looks the absolute business.

The new Marlin Automatic Sub-Dial is a modern re-interpretation of the original well-loved 1960s Marlin, which showcases pops of vibrant blue and red, effortlessly highlighting its sleek design and contemporary style that is reminiscent of decades past.

While the full Arabic dial and date feature stays true to the original, this timepiece brings sophisticated details like a 24-hour format sub-second dial at the 9 o’clock position and a stainless-steel case in a curved cushion shape. The full Marlin name also graces the dial and crown to honour not only our watchmaking legacy, but the ever-evolving style of this suave 1960s icon. Further, carefully thought out details extend to the exhibition case back where the Japanese automatic movement is proudly displayed, alongside the Marlin name and detailed etching of the iconic marlin fish.

We will have a magnificent spread on this watch with some fabulous images in the next May edition number 119, Free Car Mag.
