What a year for the Nite Unite Community and I am constantly amazed by the tenacity and commitment of our members.
2012 has been another successful year for the Nite Watches Unite community and its members. During the year Unite welcomed in excess of 20,000 new members who signed up to follow Nite watches, be part of the community and hear the adventures and sporting achievements of Nite watch owners, some of whom are well-known personalities.
The Olympics were the centrepiece of UK sport this year, and Nite was proud to welcome Olympic and World championship rower Richard Chamber on board as an ambassador of Nite watches. Chambers, winner of a Silver medal at this year’s games and a Gold medal winner at both the World Rowing Championships and Rowing World Cup Series, wears one of the latest models a Nite HAWK a super light weight (64 grams) sports watch with a carbon reinforced case.
In August, Nite-sponsored world class surfer, Ian Battrick became a Unite contributor. Battrick has spent the past 20 years chasing the biggest waves across the globe and famously travels light, often only equipped with a small tent, 6mm wetsuit, an iPod and a quiver of well-loved boards. Ian’s next project is a line of Lunasurf wetsuits, which he will shortly be testing in sub zero Icelandic waters under the Northern Lights, armed with his tough Nite AQUA watch.
Early in the year, two Unite members – Graham Hoskins and Danny John Jules (the Cat from Red Dwarf and BBC1’s Death in Paradise) – set out on an ambitious trip on two Yamaha tour bikes following the route of 1996 Paris-Dakar rally from Granada to Senegal. Equipped with Nite CHRONO watches the pair travelled through Spain, Morocco and the deserts of the Western Sahara raising money for Riders for Health.
Roger Green, Managing Director: “What a year for the Nite Unite Community and I am constantly amazed by the tenacity and commitment of our members. We’ve welcomed Olympians, members of the Special Forces not to mention one of our members – Dave Cornthwaite – swimming the entire length of the Missouri, a staggering achievement in what has been a vintage year.”
