Design Features of Marc by Marc Jacobs Watches
A key feature of most of the Marc by Marc Jacobs watches is the playful integration of alphabets representing the brand name on the dials and bezels. It can be either functional or merely an aesthetic feature.
The placing of alphabets varies depending upon the watch model. For instance, the Amy watch features bold-sized bezel engraved with MARC BY MARC JACOBS. The Blade model can be distinguished by its eye-catching bezels marked with ‘BY MARC JACOBS’, with each letter representing an hour-marker.
The Baker watch features alphabets MARC in place of four indexes, starting from 12 to 3. The Tether model sets off a transparent outer dial-ring and a small centre-dial supported by alphabet structures representing MARC.
Dressed in a polycarbonate case, the Sloane wristwatch features small centre-dial surrounded by an outer ring featuring bold-sized letters (BY MARC JACOBS) applied on it for marking hours. The Henry skeleton watch has BY MARC JACOBS alphabets for supporting the dial. Some models incorporate the alphabets (MARC or BY MARC JACOBS) on their dials as hour-markers.
A small number of watch models do not follow this specific pattern. For example, watches like Farrow and Peeker feature traditional style indexes and numerals on their dials. The Fergus chronograph and the Fergus day-date models incorporate extremely small BY MARC JACOBS lettering on the minute track.
