Spinnaker watches have just launched their latest watch collaboration with the Help for Heroes organisation following on from their Cahill 300 Automatic Help for Heroes Limited Edition timepiece last November. The new Hull Commander Automatic Help For Heroes Limited Edition is a beautiful and expressive timepiece that pays homage to the service and sacrifice of those who have served while contributing to the vital work of Help for Heroes.
UK-based charity Help for Heroes was founded back in 2007 and provides lifelong support to Service Personnel and Military Veterans with injuries, illnesses and wounds sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces. The charity does fantastic work helping to empower veterans and their families so that they can lead fulfilling lives.
The Hull Commander Automatic Help For Heroes Limited Edition has been designed to reflect the bravery and dedication of British servicemen and women, and as a symbol of support and gratitude, 5 per cent of the net sales from each watch will be donated directly to the Help for Heroes organisation, thereby helping with their mission to provide lifelong support for the Armed Forces community.
This new timepiece has a 42mm stainless steel case that is 14mm thick and water resistant to 300 metres, combining both durability and elegance for everyday use. The indexes, hour and minute hands are coated with Swiss Super-LumiNova for good low-light visibility, while the second-hand is adorned with the Help for Heroes tri-colour stripe that represents each branch of the armed forces: Army, Navy and Air Force. It is also a nod to the organisation’s vital work and the sacrifices made by our heroes.
The Hull Commander Automatic is equipped with a high-quality Japanese NH35 TMI (Seiko) movement, ensuring precision and reliability. It is also fitted with a scratch resistant sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating that offers protection, clarity and improved visibility. The watch has a screw down crown to ensure durability and resistance to the elements and a stainless steel unidirectional bezel.
The case is fitted with both a metal bracelet and a rubber strap, depending on your preference, offering maximum comfort and versatility for every kind of use.
Head of Partnerships, Louise Arnold commented:
“Another exciting year working in partnership with Dartmouth Brands on an exceptionally stylish range of watches in support of our veterans and their families. The Dartmouth Brands partnerships is so valuable to Help for Heroes ensuring we can continue to help the Armed Forces community live well after service. So, they feel valued supported, and recognised. Thank you again for supporting our heroes for another year.”
Limited to just 400 pieces worldwide, the new Spinnaker Hull Commander Automatic Help For Heroes Limited Edition timepiece is available from today 25th August 2023 at Spinnaker-watches.co.uk, priced at £375.
