For its 34th edition, the MARATHON DES SABLES has partnered with OCTOPUS Watches to offer the almost 1,000 competitors an exclusive automatic watch. Equipped with the best Swiss movement, the OCTOPUS 547 MDS watch will be engraved with the bib number of each competitor.
THE ATM1000 SERIES BY OCTOPUS
What best than a Swiss watch to give the start of such an emblematic extreme event as the MARATHON DES SABLES? It thus comes as no surprise that Patrick BAUER, creator of the event, will be using his ATM1000 MDS by OCTOPUS to give the start of the 6 stages of the 34th MDS, from 7 to 13 April. This gem of precision is part of a range of 10 watches unveiled during the press conference of 20 February that took place in Paris at the Moroccan Tourism Office. Created exclusively for MDS partners and friends, the profits derived from their sale will be directly donated to the 'SOLIDARITÉ MARATHON DES SABLES' charity, which mainly supports deprived women and children of Ouarzazate in the fields of health, education and sustainable development. The last one of these watches – number "Double Zero" – will be sold in an auction in Ouarzazate at the end of this 34th MDS.
LIMITED SERIES EXCLUSIVELY RESERVED FOR THE COMPETITORS
Following the success of the private sale, Patrick BAUER and OCTOPUS have decided to enable the thousand competitors who registered for the 34th edition of the MARATHON DES SABLES to have access to an exclusive watch: the OCTOPUS 547 MDS. Hand made from the most noble materials, equipped with the most reliable and proven automatic Swiss movement, it has a finish that mirrors Swiss watchmaking: it is just perfect! Sapphire glass, polished and brushed steel case, ETA 2824-2 Swiss movement, helium valve, unidirectional ceramic bezel, watertight to 1000 metres: the OCTOPUS 547 MDS watch has the best features. Customised to the colours of the 34th MARATHON DES SABLES, engraved with each competitor's bib number, it is an exclusive product at an unbeatable price.
Competitors have two months to order their OCTOPUS 547 MDS, but they only have one month left before the start of the race of the year, even of their life: time is closing by, pressure is building up!
