Marathon watch winner revealed


One lucky visitor to WATCHPRO Salon earlier this month has been rewarded not only with the chance to spend time with almost 50 brands and partners, but also to win a Marathon watch worth £1,130.

Jai Ariate, who lives in Northolt, west London, is a WATCHPRO Club member who was entered into a prize draw for the Marathon watch by visiting WATCHPRO Salon.


Canadian military watch maker Marathon was among the exhibiting brands.

For Jai, winning the Marathon watch — a 36mm steel on steel Marathon Search & Rescue Diver’s Automatic — was the icing on the cake after enjoying WATCHPRO Salon.

“The WATCHPRO Salon was an amazing show, everyone was very kind and helpful on many things. Grand Seiko in particular had some of the best watches on display and it’s was great to see some of their timepiece that I thought would be impossible to be seen in person. I hope this show happens again, and it’s great to have events like this held in London. I want to say a massive thank you for being part of this, and making this event possible for everyone,” he says.

Designed at the company’s HQ in Canada and made in Switzerland, Marathon makes indestructible watches by the thousands for military and emergency service personnel in North America and beyond.
