Marvin – Loeb Summer Collection

Two new sporty watches in summer colours developed in partnership with Sébastien Loeb, seven-time world rally champion.

A racing watch
The Loeb collection from Marvin evokes the world of rallying in its smallest details, thanks to the personal contributions of Marvin’s ambassador Sébastien Loeb, who has been passionately involved in this project.

In October 2010, one month before the official launch of the watch collection that bears his name, Sébastien Loeb was crowned world champion for the seventh time running.

Dynamic and vibrantly coloured, these new models from the Marvin Loeb Summer Collection are quartz chronograph timepieces, accurate to 1/10th of a second, available on a white or orange rubber strap. The corresponding dials, in white or black with an orange border, bear the signature of Sébastien Loeb. The steel caseband, with its 44 mm diameter and shaped sides, gives it a strongly technical, dynamic appearance. The solid case back is personalised with the engraving “World Rally Champion”.

Marvin reconnects with the world of motor sport
This sporty collection makes subtle reference to Marvin’s long-standing passion for automobiles. In as early as the 1930s, the brand launched its “tyre watch”, a pocket watch housed in a rubber tyre. In the 1950s, the company director Pierre Didisheim took part in several races, where he met legendary drivers like Fangio, who went on to become a Marvin ambassador.
