SAS – Special Air Service History
The British Special Air Service (SAS) was founded in 1941 as a Special Operations division of the British Army and has ever since remained one of the most respected military organizations in the world. Despite its absolute secrecy, the unit is rumoured to employ 500 active soldiers who underwent extreme recruitment and training programs.
SAS - SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN DETAILS
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean XL 45.5 mm model ref. 2200.50.00 is not only as rare as it is indestructible but it was also made exclusively for members of the SAS 22 regiment. We are amongst the few that have acquired one, it’s estimated that only about 300 were ever made.
This SAS limited edition Seamaster is engraved on the case back with the SAS winged dagger logo bearing the legendary motto, “He who dares”. It’s further engraved on the case side between the shoulders with the words, “Always a little further”, which is a line from a passage of a poem that the 22nd regiment is instructed to memorise during selection. The poem is called The Golden Journey to Samarkand, and the passage is The Pilgrim. The conversation goes, “But who are ye, in rags and rotten shoes, You dirty-bearded, blocking up the way?” the response is the first four lines from the 16-line passage.
