Since 2014, Speake-Marin has initiated a movement strategy to fully develop and assemble in-house movements within its atelier in Neuchatel area, Switzerland. This new strategy gave birth to the “SMA” collection, which includes openworked, closed dials and Haute Horlogerie movements. Speake-Marin has focused in a first time its efforts on Haute Horlogerie 3Hz movements (Minute Repeater and Double Tourbillon). In a second time, Speake-Marin has developed Hour Minutes Seconds 4Hz movements, which were featured in the new One&Two design as an openworked movement named SMA01. This movement has the particularity to have the small seconds counter at 1:30.
The new Calibre SMA03 is part of the SMA movement family and introduces the first closed dial with small seconds at 1:30. The small seconds at 1:30 meets the Speake-Marin objective to twist the watchmaking codes. Speake-Marin is indeed the only watchmaker who positions the small seconds there. It is actually a real constraint in terms of movement development since the small seconds at 1:30 has to go through the time setting module.
