Sydney based watch brand Bausele is commemorating its 10th anniversary this year. Celebrating this significant occasion, the company will auction a number of exceptional timepieces.
Over the years, Bausele has collaborated with Australian icons like The Sydney Opera House and The Royal Australian Air Force on two timepieces. Since 2020, it has created its new home in The Heart of The Rocks, Sydney. The brand has also achieved success in developing Australia’s 1st hybrid smartwatch with the Vintage 2.0 and being the first ever Australian watch brand to be featured in the NY Times.
Bausele stands for Beyond AUStralian ELEments. The company has its own production unit in Adelaide, created in a joint venture with Flinders University. Each watch has an element of Australia in the crown.
Limited premium quantities are developed for each timepiece model, with limited edition numbered engravings on the caseback. Pieces of Australian RAAF aircraft/sand/earth in the crown make these timepieces one to remember.
On the night of the 9th of December, the brand opens the doors of its boutique store in Sydeny to welcome friends, supporters and VIP watch collectors of the brand. Bausele will also conduct a one-night only auction of some of their prized watches. All profits from this special anniversary sale will be donated to Habitat Sanctuaries, a non-for-profit organisation founded by Mat Manson with the mission of protecting and conserving Australian Wildlife.
The timepieces that will be auctioned on the night:
1. Bausele Oceanmoon IV AWF number 40 – The Australian Watch Forum 5th Anniversary watch
Created in honour of the Australia Watch Forum, Australia’s largest watch group, only 40 pieces were made of this iconic timepiece. This Limited edition of only 40 pieces has been designed with AWF co-founder Nick Glynatsis. The group was formed in November 2015 and with over 10,000 members is Australia’s largest watch group.
The inspiration behind the bright blue colour on the degrade sunray dial comes from Australia and our ocean and skies which are a beautiful blue. As an added connection to this special place, this watch also comes with some “actual” sand from a famous Australian beach on display in the hollow crown at 4H.
2. Bausele Oceanmoon IV Silver number 100
The new OceanMoon is instantly recognizable by its oversized, eye-catching orange minute hand and it’s clear sunray dial with Super-Luminova coated indexes and hands. The intriguing silver dial features white hands and numerals that glow in the dark for night- time visibility. Designed as a professional dive watch, it features a 42mm 316L steel case, thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and a double screw down crown to ensure a solid 200 meter water resistance.
The new Swiss Made timepiece is equipped with an inner bi-directional Diving Count- up bezel. An inner soft anti-magnetic Faraday cage protects the Swiss Automatic self-winding movement. The innovation of the strap, made of ocean waste into upcycled plastic is a uniquely stylish addition that belies the good intentions of purpose. It is operated by a high quality deployed “butterfly” buckle. Only 100 were created of this limited-edition timepiece.
3. Bausele Pilot Automatic Cockatoo
Inspired by the watches of aviation pilots back in the day, the 12 on the face of the watch is situated at the traditional 2 position, allowing the advantage of telling the time without having to move your wrist. White matte ceramic watch case, white rubber strap and white watch dial make this timepiece elegantly feminine. Only 50 individually numbered watches were originally available.
