Speake-Marin Spirit Mark 2
The Spirit Mark 2 sees Peter Speake-Marin revisit the popular Spirit Pioneer and redesign it from the ground up. The Mark 2 retains the distinctive identity of the Pioneer, but has a new movement, dial and case.

The 42mm case is made of stainless steel. The three-dimensional, one-piece enamel dial features Roman numerals and hour markers in white Super-LumiNova.

The watch houses the new unidirectional, automatic-winding movement TT738 offering a power reserve of 120 hours.

On the case-back, the centrally engraved Speake-Marin ‘topping tool' motif catches the eye. However, it is the engraved inspirational rallying cry – “Fight, Love & Persevere” – that steals the attention and upholds the Spirit's name. Peter Speake-Marin says: “The themes of determination, tenacity and love were close to my heart when I created the Spirit series. Having travelled around all four corners of the globe, I have seen that these themes resonate with many different people in many different cultures. Spirit seems to express a universal sentiment and so it was important for me to carry this, the essence of the Spirit, over from the Spirit Pioneer and into the Spirit Mark 2.
I have therefore retained the ‘Fight, Love & Persevere' motto from the Spirit Pioneer, but have engraved it even larger on the Mark 2 case-back to reinforce the powerful message.”

Early this year, the Spirit Mk2 have been awarded Watch of the Year 2012 by Passion Horlogère.
