Introducing the Speake-Marin One & Two Academic Rouge Collection – Exclusively at Marshall Pierce, Chicago’s Authorized Dealer

Introducing the Exquisite One & Two Collection by Speake-Marin at Marshall Pierce & Company

Marshall Pierce & Company, Chicago’s authorized dealer for Speake-Marin, is thrilled to introduce the One & Two Collection – a testament to contemporary style and strong watch architecture. The collection’s cornerstone, the iconic Piccadilly case, sets a new standard in luxury watchmaking.

ACADEMIC ROUGE: A Symphony of Elegance and Passion

The ACADEMIC ROUGE stands out in this collection, embodying French elegance and the magnetic allure of the color red. Known for symbolizing passion, love, and courage, red’s emotional appeal in this context is of confidence, strength, and desire. The ACADEMIC ROUGE, with its Pantone 188C hue – a rich, pink-red reminiscent of a ruby or a deep red wine – encapsulates this perfectly.

The Unparalleled Craftsmanship

This timepiece’s dial, enhanced with a vibrant lacquer, is impossible to overlook. Billight red matt Super-LumiNova adorns the Roman numeral hour markers, contrasting exquisitely with the deep red dial. The curved SPEAKE MARIN signature and the small seconds indicator add to its distinctiveness, while the heart and spade shaped rhodium-plated hands provide a sharp contrast.

The ACADEMIC ROUGE’s allure is further heightened by its round tubular Piccadilly case, a mere 10.5 mm in thickness, crafted from Grade 5 titanium. The large fluted crown, the folding buckle on the grey leather strap, and the anti-reflective coated sapphire crystals front and back, all speak of unmatched elegance and audacity.

The Heartbeat of ACADEMIC ROUGE

At its heart lies the in-house Calibre SMA03 automatic movement, with a fully integrated micro-rotor, offering a 52-hour power reserve. The movement, hand-decorated and angled with haute Horlogerie finishing, is visible through the transparent crystal back, inviting admiration for its intricate craftsmanship.

Unique Design Features

A standout feature of Speake Marin watches is the positioning of the small second at 1:30, a unique and challenging design choice in watchmaking, emphasizing the brand’s commitment to innovation and excellence. With eleven movements developed in-house as of 2023, Speake Marin continues to redefine the horological landscape.


The One & Two Collection, particularly the ACADEMIC ROUGE, is not just a timepiece; it’s a statement of elegance, precision, and passion. As Chicago’s exclusive authorized dealer, Marshall Pierce & Company invites you to experience this exceptional collection that resonates with the art of living and the spirit of innovation.
