Marvin M103: A crazy cheap automatic chronograph

I haven’t written about Marvin yet but these guys make some striking, classic pieces at prices that are actually astounding. Take this <a HREF="“>old girl here, the M103. This is a Valjoux 7750 chrono movement with day and date register and it costs $1,790. This is the same movement that is in almost every watch you see out there including a lot of the stratospheric $6000+ brands.

The watches are assembled in Switzerland and shipped out of the U.S.A.

Anyway, the M103 has some nice racing colors and comes on a leather strap. They’ve also got the M109 that looks like a cubist’s dream and the M112 that looks like something Grandpa used to take off when he used to slug bouncers during Prohibition. Great stuff.
