Giveaway watches typically give attention to brands, products, and new features within a collection, yet Marathon Watch has partnered with aBlogtoWatch and Crown & Buckle for a giveaway that brings attention to a positive cause. As some of you may remember, I had announced not long ago Marathon’s sponsorship of my cycling team for the Ride To Conquer Cancer here in Ontario, Canada. aBlogtoWatch has and will continue to cover my 200km charity ride, and this Marathon Diver’s Automatic or GSAR watch has been provided in exchange for raised awareness of cancer treatment research.

The winner of the Marathon Diver’s Automatic GSAR watch will also be sent an official Crown & Buckle #timeforacure team nato strap, which is also available for $12 online with 100% of the proceeds going to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

So why do you want this watch? Well, aside from it being an actual timepiece worn by the allied forces, it’s an incredibly well-crafted tool watch with a tough-as-nails case, tritium gas tube indices, hands for 24-hour visibility, and a super legible dial. It sits well on the wrist at 41 x 48 x 14mm with a 20mm lug width — it has presence but is wholly functional as a daily wearer. The Marathon Diver’s Automatic GSAR watch is powered by the workhorse ETA-2824-A2 automatic movement with date function, and its scratch resistant sapphire crystal with beefy 316L steel case means this thing will take whatever comes your way.

It’s a purpose-built machine retailing for $1,149.95 USD with real mil-spec credibility. You can win this special giveaway by following the rules below, but if you are like me and want to know how you can help, or support my team’s efforts to promote positive social change through funding cancer research, then visit our official team page to learn more or make your tax-deductible contribution.

No contributions are necessary to enter, but I hope this watch and our combined efforts can make a real difference.
