The German watchmaker Chris Benz is doing his bit for shark protection: an exclusive SHARKPROJECT watch is in production and will be available for purchase in a bundle with “Blind Dates”.
The CHRIS BENZ DEEP 1000m SHARKPROJECT Edition is a dive watch with helium valve, constructed for the hardest UW conditions. Robust, solid and alsmost indestructible – and ‘shark proof‘. The watch, with the SHARKPROJECT logo on the face and the new blue wrist-strap will be initially produced in a limited edition of 100.
It can be ordered in a bundle with a copy of the best-seller-book, “Blind-Dates”, the latest book about shark accidents, their causes and ways of avoiding them – knowledge gathered from over 35,000 dives.
For SHARKPROJECT this is a doubly interesting cooperation. We have a share of the profits which the book brings in, and and to a lesser extent, the watch. On top of that, Chris Benz brings us into contact with an audience which we would not normally reach. Through Chris Benz we come into contact with watch collectors, many of whom will hear our shark-protection message through the watch promotion, and learn why it is so important to decriminalise and protect sharks. Chris Benz is doing utmost to promote the SHARKPROJECT Edition and is even producing a video (We will report on that).
During the “boot“ trade-fair in Düsseldorf, the bundle can be pre-ordered for a special price: 325€, 39.95€ of which goes towards the book. The reservation can only be made at the Chris Benz booth (Hall 3 -Booth G 74). After the trade-fair, it can be ordered for the special price exclusively in the SHARKPROJECT Licenced Shop until 7th February.
After this the bundle will cost 375€ – if there are any left; 50€ more.
Bundles ordered in the SHARKPROJECT Licenced Shop will be sent by post starting at the beginning of March (delivery and customs charges are not included in the price).
