This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War. To pay homage to the service and sacrifice of those who served during this chapter in the history of the British Armed Forces, Spinnaker has launched the Cahill 300 Automatic Help For Heroes Limited Edition timepiece.
Help For Heroes is the leading veterans charity founded to provide lifetime support to those wounded in the service of their country. Every course and activity offered from them aims to empower veterans to look beyond illness and injury, regain their purpose, reach their potential and have a positive impact on society.
Robust yet wearable, the 43mm case has an impressive 300m of water resistance. Crafted out of solid marine grade 316L stainless steel, the aluminium inlaid diver uni-directional bezel calls out the 40-year anniversary of the Falklands Conflict.
The 15-minute mark is also highlighted on the bezel to nod at 15 years since the establishment of the Help for Heroes charity.
A scratch resistant sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating offers protection, clarity and visibility. The watch comes with a screw down crown ensuring its durability and resistance to the elements.
Cleanly and unabashedly classic, the dial is that of a traditional dive watch with slightly more adventurous proportions. ‘Mercedes’ style dive hands are re-proportioned and generously lumed with Swiss luminous reflecting proportion and excellent legibility and visibility. The hands and dial mark out subtle references to the three-colour design of the Help For Heroes logo.
Each colour represents the separate but united branches of the Royal Armed Forces. The Cahill is powered by the robust and reliable Japanese NH35 TMI (Seiko) automatic movement.
The watch comes with a choice of either a solid stainless bracelet with a solid deployant buckle or a hand stitched water-resistant leather strap that is robust yet comfortable for an every day, every season wear.
The strap is marked by a three-stitch design echoing the Help For Heroes colours -which represent the three branches of the Armed forces, Navy, Army and Air Force.
Each watch is uniquely numbered and part of a limited edition production of only 600 pieces. Each watch contributes 5% of net sales going toward the important work of the Help For Heroes organization.
