Marathon has a new variant on their Arctic watch, which now features a day and date window. The beefy 46mm wide watch has a Sellita SW200 automatic movement, sapphire crystal and tritium gas tube lume. Details like the turret edged bezel and the knurled crown give it a real industrial strength feel.
You can choose steel bracelet of silicone rubber strap with the rubber one being some 400 euros cheaper. Seems like the best option and then buy a steel bracelet aftermarket. At 2500 euros for the range topper, this is an expensive Sellita SW powered watch, even though it has 300m of depth resistance and an undeniable “built to last” look about it.
There’s strong competition from brands like Oris, Yema, Mido, Ball, Christopher Ward, Seiko, Citizen and more, plus a raft of smaller Indie brands too, many using Sellita SW or ETA 2824 derived auto movements.
