QUICK RELEASE in Partnership With Spinnaker

The Ocean Beckons with the MCS Capsule Collection from Spinnaker

Can a watch protect our oceans? With the Spinnaker Marine Conservation Society Collection, the answer is a resounding yes. The MCS Capsule collection comprises of three unique timepieces from our best-selling collections; Spence 300, Hass and Cahill 300, each of which features an original illustration from the MCS inspired by the diversity and beauty of the ocean’s marine life, including the turtle, the whale, and the giant squid. The Marine Conservation Society is a UK based charity dedicated to education, advocacy and action to protect the ocean.

For the second year in a row, a portion of the proceeds from every timepiece will be donated to the MCS to support them in their fight for a cleaner, better protected, healthier ocean; one we can all enjoy.

This year, Spinnaker has also worked with Rachel Brooks, an internationally acclaimed wildlife artist and scientific illustrator, who has given her own unique spin to the marine life illustrations. Brooks’ work has been featured in various publications and exhibitions around the world, and her passion for conservation and environmental issues made her the perfect collaborator for this project. Each watch packaging comes with a limited-edition print of Brooks’ beautiful interpretation of the turtle, the whale and the giant squid.

The Hass Automatic MCS Limited Edition

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 green and cream dial featuring a marine turtle. The index, hands and the turtle illustration on the dial are coated with generous layers of Swiss Super-Lumi Nova for better visibility in lower light conditions.

A battery free Japanese Automatic, TMI NH35 Automatic movement with a custom ‘roulette’ style date wheel provides an enduring, robust timekeeping engine for the Hass. The Hass hugs the wrist 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. The Hass Automatic MCS Limited Edition, featuring an MCS-original illustration of the green turtle on its dial is available for $445 on the Spinnaker site.

The Spence 300 Automatic MCS Limited Edition

The aim and the result was a watch with barely felt slimness and stealth that could nonetheless command over 300m or 1000ft of tested water resistance. With multiple applications of Swiss Super-LumiNova pigment, the easy to read, clear cut indexes blaze in tandem with the hands in low visibility conditions. The “broad arrow” handset matches the dial and watch aesthetics perfectly. Nodding to one of the ocean’s gentle giants, the dial features a carefully drawn whale on a deep blue backdrop.

Powering the Spence 300 is the reliable, high beat mechanics of the 24 Jewel Miyota 9039 automatic movement delivering over 42 hours of power reserve for a precise and enduring level of timekeeping. A solid bracelet, custom designed, engineered and built to attach the watch to the wrist harmonizes with the case lines for a slim, luxurious fit. Additionally, the Spence 300 arrives with an additional rPET (recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) nylon Nato strap for added versatility and options in wear.

Carefully considered design and hand assembled workmanship result in a timepiece that is under 11 mm in thickness yet capable of enduring over 300m of water resistance for $650 in the Spinnaker shop.

The Cahill 300 Automatic MCS Limited Edition

Cleanly and unabashedly classic, the dial is that of a traditional dive watch with a slightly more adventurous twist, featuring a stylish giant squid on a deep red canvas. The dial is layered and subtly segmented to add extra depth, balance and clarity. Generously lumed with Swiss Super-LumiNova, the dial aims to perform adeptly in lower light visibility.

The 43mm case is robust yet wearable, helping to deliver an impressive 300m of water resistance. A dual time bezel again adds a different dimension of utility and its clean finish and scale make the Cahill a worthy and handsome nautically robust sports watch for all seasons.

The Cahill is powered by the ever ready, powerfully robust and reliable Japanese NH35 TMI (Seiko) movement. Attaching the case head to the wrist is a choice of either a solid stainless bracelet with a solid deployant buckle or a rPET (recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) nylon Nato strap that is robust yet comfortable for everyday wear. Find the Cahill 300 Automatic MCS LE in the Spinnaker Shop priced at $370.
