SAS Watch Company Ltd, is extremely pleased to announce our partnership with Mike O'Shea and Clare O'Leary Irelands leading explorers. Mike and Clare will set off on an expedition to the North Pole on foot the equivalent to two marathons a day in temperatures of -20C to -60C (-4F to -76F) !! They will travel 778Kms over 60 days pulling sledges with all their supplies and equipment. They will also be wearing SAS watches that have been prepared by master watchmaker John McGonigle from McGonigle watches to withstand the freezing temperatures. Each watch has been completly stripped down, serviced, and re oiled using oils specially developed for freezing conditions.
The watches we sent are the Dubh Linn and the Stealth Tiger. Both have a water depth rating of 1000 meters and have anti-magnetic protection, and with our preimum rubber straps are a perfect choice for expeditions.
For 2015 we decided to make special editions just for Mike and Clare. We used the same specially adapted movements
and gave them a custom dial and hand set and a new white rubber strap.
Testing their dry suits and their SAS Watches!! (-51c)
