Dan Bartel, Vice President of Worldwide Customer Sales at Garmin
Ultra-light, the MARQ Carbon collection highlights Garmin's passion with unique know-how by introducing a premium material to the industry: fused carbon. Each watch features a 46mm case and bezel, machined from a block of Fused Carbon Fiber. Made up of 130 layers of carbon sheets, this new model requires around fifty days to design and more than 60 manufacturing steps. To create the watch, each layer of carbon is rotated at a unique angle to increase the strength of the initial block. The block is then subjected to a combination of heat and pressure to align with the shape of the watch case. Several hours of machining using precise diamond cutting tools results in a remarkable surface featuring a beautiful spiral pattern unique to each watch, both robust and lightweight.
Combining luxury and performance, the MARQ Carbon collection is adorned with high-end straps, whether in perforated FKM leather, jacquard-woven nylon or high-end rubber. Each bracelet is meticulously designed to meet the specific needs of each user. Its 16-day battery life makes it the ideal companion for the most extreme adventures. And thanks to the innovative magnetic charger, the watch fully charges in less than an hour.
