Good deed feed – William Wood Watches donate to the Australian bushfire relief.
SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AT $4,800 WITH ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO SUPPORT THOSE IMPACTED BY THE AUSTRALIAN BUSHFIRE CRISIS.
William Wood Watches revealed a few weeks ago that they created a one off, unique customised Valiant Collection Red Watch in support of the ongoing relief effort for the Australian bushfires.
Featuring a specialised koala bear logo engraved on the caseback, the watch sported limited edition numbers 000/250 which represents the emergency services contact number in Australia.
Rather aptly, the brands roots stem from the British fire fighting service, the Valiant Collection straps are made from up-cycled British fire hoses that have served and protected British firefighters for over 10 years. With other features including a watch crown melted down from an original 1920’s London Fire Brigade helmet, there couldn’t be a more fitting timepiece to support the cause.
The Valiant Collection Watch stirred up quite an interest amongst 23 other donated timepieces, mixing with some of the world’s top Swiss luxury brands, Rolex, Hublot and Zenith just to name a few.
All together the auction managed to raise a fantastic $170,000 dollars towards the charity which will go a long way towards the relief.
Hats off to William Wood Watches for this charitable gesture. For more information check out the full write up here.
