The new Resilience from Peter Speake-Marin is part of the his entry level line (not unlike the Spirit Pioneer limited edition). Housed in the 38 or 42 mm steel Piccadilly case that the Serpent Calendar also uses, the Resilience is straight forward but nevertheless beautiful and retains the archetypal Speake-Marin look.

The Resilience has a fired enamel dial, along with blued steel hands. Despite being entry level, all the components, especially the dial and hands, are very well made, as is the case with all Speake-Marin. According to Peter, “Enamel dials never tarnish with age. Thus, the Speake-Marin Resilience is indeed resilient, in terms of substance – the enamel will stay the same for time immemorial…”
Inside is the Eros 2 automatic calibre with a five day power reserve. And visible through the display back is the topping tool-shaped rotor, a signature of Speake-Marin. Unlike the higher priced Thalassa which is completely in-house, the Eros is based on an outsourced ebauche. The Resilience starts at CHF16,020 for the 38 mm steel case, and goes up to CHF29,880 for the 42 mm rose gold. – SJXBack to top.
