There are few things we like more than a limited edition Seiko, and one of those things is a limited edition Seiko that has been made specifically for the Australian market. Which is lucky, because that’s exactly what the Seiko Prospex SNE520P is — an 800-piece series made just for the land down under. And really, the choice of watch makes perfect sense — after all, a solar-powered diver is just the sort of watch you want for a country renowned for its high ratio of both sun and surf. On top of that, there’s the green and gold colour scheme, which has been realised in a pretty classy manner. There’s quite a bit of gold detailing, on the bezel, dial and crown. But the green is a little more low-key, only showing up on the first 20 minutes of the dive bezel. As far as Australian-themed watches go, it’s subtle, which is, in my opinion, a pretty good thing.
Now, there are 800 of these watches, available across Australia, but one of them — number one, to be precise — is currently in our possession. But not for long. You may or may not be aware that parts of Australia are in the grip of a significant drought, so we thought it would be a good idea to try to help out, so we’re auctioning off Watch #1 via a silent auction, with 100 per cent of the proceeds being donated to Drought Angels, who provide direct support to drought-affected areas. You can learn more about their programs here. The watch will be sold in a silent auction process. The process is simple — simply email your highest bid to firstname.lastname@example.org before the auction closes at 5pm AEST this Friday, November 2. The winner will be contacted on Monday, November 5. So, if you want a chance to help our primary producers AND get your hands on a pretty hot watch — get bidding!
