|DOXA is very pleased and proud to have been able to do its part for
the World Watch Auction in Aid of the Australian Wildfire Crisis.
The SUB 200 “130th Anniversary” diver’s watch went for USD 5,000 at the auction, almost three times its suggested retail price. The proceeds went directly to Australian environmental organizations.
|DOXA immediately answered the call from Time+Tide, Australia’s leading watch media platform and the brand’s Australian distributor, donating a SUB 200 “130th Anniversary” limited edition diver’s watch for the special auction in aid of the Australian bushfire crisis. The online auction ended on Friday, January 31st at 9 am AEDT. The entire proceeds from this auction of 24 prestigious watches will be disbursed to these environmental organizations in Australia: The Country Fire Authority; Wildlife Victoria; Gippsland Emergency Relief; New South Wales Rural Fire Service; and WWF-Australia.
“When Andrew McUtchen at Time+Tide called and started telling me about this important initiative, I said Yes! before he could even finish his sentence,” explains Jan Edöcs, CEO of DOXA, “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the auction and congratulate the buyer of the SUB 200 “130th Anniversary” No. 17/130 on his acquisition. Thank you for supporting Watch & ACT!”
