Every year, more than a 100 million sharks are killed as by-catch or are targeted for their fins/cartilage. The volunteer initiative SHARKPROJECT e.V. was founded in 2002 and fights on the front line for increased knowledge about sharks to ensure a better understanding of the importance of protecting these animals.

This bundle, consisting of the DEEP 1000M SHARKPROJECT EDITION and the interactive book on incidents concerning sharks 'BLIND DATES - The Big Book of Shark Encounters', is a clear indication of the efforts in place to fight against the extermination of the shark. The inscription on the base of this robust and almost indestructible special edition watch is unique and raises awareness of the 'STOP FINNING' campaign and also features the special SHARKPROJECT design.

This professional diving watch with a helium valve is not only an indispensable companion in the deep blue sea but is also a way for the international community of leading shark protection organisations to raise awareness for their work.
