Well, I can say I love it...
I've only seen a few in the past but I certainly do like them more now! Nice collection and photos, and I love that tank!
Are these in your collection?
They are all quite wonderful!
Underrated brand, for sure.
Thanks for sharing!
You can find lots more M.L. (Marvin Love) here in a thread I started 2 1/2 years ago when I first discovered the brand:
Yes, all in my collection.
Congrats for your two Flying Dutchman; It's a lot of time I'm looking for one in good condition
Here's another Flying Dutchman. Not as nice as either of Doug's.
Marvin love here too...
Nice collection. Makes such a change to the usual fare! Wear in good health and thanks for posting.
A long sought after Marvin and finally got it!!
Gold capped stainless steel
I wish that I had known, as I sold an equally nice one a couple of years ago! Nice find, though, so congratulations.
Surfing the Marvin website, I found an email address dedicated to "vintage Marvin" so I sent a mail in order to obtain some information about my watches..
The answer was disappointing: "...After checking, we are sorry to inform you that we cannot give more details about your watches as we lost an important part of our company archives...". Since my watches range from the 30's to the 70's, what part of the archive has been saved? Why offer a service they aren't able to give?
I had this too, which I sold recently:
Marvin Chief diver!
That a future black bay “faded” insert [emoji51]
Here's my Marvin Valjoux 22.
Had a similar experience as @bubba48 when I emailed Marvin 2 years ago looking for information about this watch. They were very friendly but said they had little archive material from that period to draw from.
As it's non-Incabloc my watchmaker thinks it was manufactured between 1945 and 1950/52 based on his understanding that Incabloc would have been introduced in around 1952. If anyone on OF knows more about these specific chronos interested in building my knowledge.
Until I read this post I never heard about Marvin..but now I can say that I like Marvin.
I certainly like them now. Perhaps the name brand being so seldom seen one may still find these under priced for the value. Worth keeping an eye out for.
I am a huge fan of vintage Bucherers and Favre Leubas, and know very little about Marvin.
What sort of movements do they typically use? I am referring to vintage Marvins of course.
