To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR), an elite special operation force, the SAS Historical Foundation has commissioned Australian watch company, Haigh & Hastings, to supply a limited number of mechanical timepieces, specifically designed to commemorate this special Golden Jubilee Anniversary milestone.

Haigh & Hastings is a new Australian brand that we covered a while ago, they are focusing on developing ‘Timepieces for Adventurous Men’. Well, with the SASR, they sure reach their target!

For this occasion, Haigh & Hastings will launch a special edition of their blue-bezel M2 Diver, limited to 1000 pieces. The black strap has been customized to suit this special occasion, with an embossed Limited Edition case-back design commemorating the Golden Jubilee Anniversary. The box has been specially created to carry the SASR badge and each of the 1000 timepieces comes with its own Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity.

Major Brett Warner of the SASR Historical Foundation said:

“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 ‘Timepieces for Adventurous Men’ range as a way to commemorate this special milestone in our proud history of service.

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye.
