CANFORD: RNSS special edition
CANFORD: RNSS special edition
Deputy Rear Admiral Submarines Jim Perks, is keen to promote the ethos of submariners, serving and retired, and has kindly given his permission for the production and sale of this limited edition watch, sold exclusively to those who have qualified SM.
In the past, the SM watches were built individually to order, but because of ongoing demand, we now keep them in stock and available to qualified Submariners. However, there have been so many of you, you've cleared us out! Back in stock early March 2020
It is anticipated that qualified submariners will wear this watch daily with pride, but especially at auspicious gatherings such as the Annual Submarine Memorial in London, and the Annual Submarine ‘Gambit’ Dinner.
This model has been chosen specifically to be within reach of every qualified and former submariner, regardless of rank, rate, or to some extent, means, and from the sale of each watch a donation will be made by Elliot Brown to a charitable fund managed by ACNS SM supporting the wider SM Community. So far, we have donated almost £50,000.
Based on our best-selling 'supercompressor' Swiss quartz Canford model, this watch is officially licensed by the MoD and is available only to qualified Royal Navy Submariners, serving or retired.
This design features a dark sunray blue dial with subdued grey Submariners Dolphins at 6 o'clock, and subtle hour markers around the very edge of the dial picked out in green, yellow, and red, reminiscent of the coloured segments of a snorting barometer. The case back is deeply etched with the Submariners Service Dolphins with space left on the circular section (immediately beneath Limited Edition) for the owner's service number and Rank/Rate.
Shockproof and waterproof to 200M, it also features an internal timing bezel, and solid steel screw-in strap bars for strength.
Each watch comes fitted with our black rubber strap, with a black nylon NATO strap also included in the box, along with a driver to unscrew the strap bars. All our other straps will also fit.
There is a space for up to 25 characters (including spaces) in total on the caseback for your name and Rank/Rate etc. to be engraved free of charge inclusive in the price. This will be engraved in an arc in the same area as the service number in the photos. The 25 characters include your service number if you choose to include it.
Please enter a maximum of 25 characters (spaces and punctuation are classed as characters) into the Custom Engraving box at the top of the page during the checkout process, and we will engrave your watch within a few days of receiving your order. The font used for the engraving will match the other watch specification lettering.
The text submitted in the message box will be engraved on your watch exactly as it appears in the box, so please make sure you are happy with it as we can take no responsibility for any errors.
If youy have any questions about the watch or the ordering process, please email us at email@example.com or call us on +44 (0)1202 338600 during office hours.
