Marathon aficionados will be singing the brand’s praises today at the launch of their all new 41mm Stainless Steel Navigator with Date. The watch, five years in development, has been a highly anticipated addition to the watchmaker’s lineup.

Off the Cuff: Marathon 46mm Arctic JDD Search and Rescue
Much like the brand’s smaller GSAR line, the standard JDD is a brushed stainless steel, 30ATM diver with an automatic Swiss movement--only wider, thicker, longer, and heavier. In 2021, Marathon added the Arctic White dial to its GSAR line after much research and development. The idea behind the dial change was less about aesthetics, or choice, and more about constructing something essential to usage in the far north—where glare from a combination of ice and snow can be an issue.
Off the Cuff: Marathon Pilot Navigator
As a product of modern design, the Navigator has been rendered in a high impact composite fibre shell. It is 41mm in diameter and 48mm lug to lug--though its asymmetrical styling and small dial space mean that its wears much smaller than the specs suggest. It is just under 13mm in thickness, as well, but due to the material used in its construction, the watch is shockingly lightweight (40g!). Its lines are clean and crisp, and there is a fine pebbling to the case shell that provides a uniform matte finish.
