SPINNAKER has announced a unique collaboration timepiece in collaboration with the Marine Conservation Society, the UK based charity dedicated to education, advocacy and action to protect the ocean.
Due for release on 8th June – World Ocean Day – the SPINNAKER HASS is also a tribute to the life and work of noted Austrian marine biologist, documentarian and diving pioneer, Hans Hass.
The two colourways are inspired by the natural palettes across the depths of the ocean, crafted solidly and with intent as being sturdy, robust dive watches.
The HASS is capable of 300m of water resistance, with a solid stainless steel case, topped with a dual register countdown and time elapsed timer bezel. With a scratch resistant sapphire lens, the watch displays the detailed carefully finished dial. The index and hands are coated with generous layers of Swiss Super-LumiNova for better visibility in lower light conditions.
The watch is equipped with a Japanese Automatic, TMI NH16 Automatic movement with a custom ‘roulette’ style date wheel.
The HASS watch comes with a choice of solid stainless steel bracelet or a rPet (recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) nylon Nato strap that is fabricated from recycled discarded plastic. The packaging is crafted out of recyclable, bio-degradable card printed out of non-toxic dyes.
Throughout the design of the HASS and its packaging, the watch has been considered to be an operating, wearable reminder of the sustainability, long life, recyclability, and circular economy possible and necessary to preserve the health and integrity of the ocean.
The SPINNAKER HASS is a limited edition timepiece with only 500 of each colourway being produced. Each watch is uniquely numbered and the sales of each watch go towards the funding of work undertaken by the Marine Conservation Society for a cleaner, better protected, healthier ocean.
The suggested retail price of the Spinnaker HASS watch is USD $445 (£375/€415).
