    Although the brand was established only in February of this year, Western Australia’s Haigh & Hastings was commissioned to design a watch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the country’s SAS. The Australian SAS Historical Foundation picked Haigh & Hastings to supply a limited run of 1,000 mechanical watches to mark the milestone.


    “As an Australian quality watch company, we’re honoured to be commissioned to supply the specifically designed, limited edition timepiece to commemorate this significant milestone – the 50th Anniversary of the Special Air Service Regiment. It’s a perfect match – ‘Timepieces for Adventurous Men’ and the outstanding men of the SASR.” James Ross, Managing Director, Haigh & Hastings


    The SAS model is based on the company’s M2 Divers watch, the SASR limited edition features a blue bezel and black rubber strap, embossed commemorative case back design. Like other M2 Divers models, the 44mm automatic watch is water resistant to 300m with 316L stainless steel case and uses a screwdown crown and unidirectional rotating bezel. The watch comes complete with a box carrying the SASR badge and a certificate of authenticity.


    “All of us who have served with the Special Air Service Regiment can be immensely proud of this historical milestone – our 50th Anniversary. As a not?for?profit organisation, the SAS Historical Foundation is pleased to offer this Limited Edition Haigh & Hastings range as a way to commemorate this special milestone in our proud history of service.” Major Brett Warner, SASR Historical Foundation.

    The watch will be marketed exclusively through the SASR Historical Foundation’s website.

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends don't let friends buy G-Schlocks.


    Some of my bracelets and straps cost more than all of my friends watches... not a WIS in the bunch!
