Loeb's WRC Watch Created by Marvin
The biggest feature of the watch is the "shock absorber" springs on lugs that actually function as part of the system that "wraps" the straps around your wrist.
The new Loeb Special Edition from Marvin is offered in two versions: a mechanical and an automatic-rewinding chronograph, Valjoux 7750. The cheaper quartz version has Loeb’s signature on the dial at 4 a’clock and engraved on the stales steel back, followed by
the inscription “World Rally Champion”, while the automatic version has the signature engraved on the crystal transparent caseback which reveals the movement.
The watch is 44 mm wide, with a steel case and plastic strap. Of the two versions, the automatic one will be produced in a limited run of just 177 pieces. Features also include seven stars placed around the dial to commemorate Loeb’s achievement, and chronograph pushers that look like aluminum drilled pedals. According to the racing legend, the dial is stiled around the instrument cluster of his rally car.
The steel case can either be finished in a satin color or black PVD. Such a watch is aimed at connoisseurs, who want to wear it at auto events. For this particular model, they can expect to pay $2,520 (EUR1,850) for the automatic and $970 (EUR710) for the quartz movement.
