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.
