I am very happy to announce that the OTC/Kobold watch auction is now live on eBay. Please make sure to stop by the auction’s page and take a look – but don’t wait too long because it ends on January 11.
It’s a great opportunity to do some good and score a cool deal – Mike Kobold has generously donated a brand new Arctic Diver Swiss, logoed baseball hat and several expedition patches from Kobold sponsored arctic missions. All of the auction’s proceeds – that’s 100% – will go directly to the veteran’s support group, The Mission Continues.
If you are not familiar with The Mission Continues, here is a little background. Founded by Navy Seal officer, Rhodes Scholar and White House Fellow Eric Greitens, The Mission Continues recognizes that injured veterans still have a desire to serve their country and their community.
The Mission Continues awards fellowships to empower wounded and disabled veterans to serve in their communities. In doing so, they send the message: “We still need you.” America owes these men and women a great deal, but as a nation, we have much left to learn from them. While injury may have changed the nature of their service, their mission continues, and it is as important as ever. To learn more, please visit The Mission Continues’ website.
Kobold Watch Company and its founder, Mike Kobold, have a deep connection with the armed and protective services. Kobold’s watches are depended on by every branch of the military; in fact operators from elite units helped Kobold develop its renowned Phantom chronograph. A leading American boutique watch brand, Kobold’s signature watches grace the wrists of explorers, politicians, soldiers and celebrities.
Kobold watches are regularly profiled in leading international watch and lifestyle magazines and they are considered by many to be some of the best tool watches in the world. Kobold Watch is a proud supporter of the Navy SEAL Warrior Fund.
So please spread the word about this great auction, link to your own blog or website, tell a friend and let other veterans know about this great auction – and about The Mission Continues.
