Buy a cool watch and save a SiFi legend

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 22. May 2011 by taurec42

Some month ago I spoke about the “Save the Lars Homestead” Project from Mark Dermul.

Mark is close to reach his goal to collect enough money to save the Lars Homestead in Tunisia.

Now you have the chance to buy an awesome watch that contains Sand from the Homestead and help the Project with this purchase.

There are two different versions:

I quote:

Pledge $77 or more

We will send you our PREMIUM 35th ANNIVERSARY LARS EXPEDITION WRISTWATCH (projected retail: $119). This handsome wristwatch will have a time capsule filled with authentic TATOOINE SAND. Your $77 includes priority shipping within the USA. (Shipping to Canada add $5, International add $12.)

Pledge $107 or more

LIMITED REWARD     1136 of 1138 remaining

You will receive our LIMITED EDITION 35th ANNIVERSARY LARS EXPEDITION WRISTWATCH (projected retail: $179). This handsome wristwatch will have a time capsule filled with authentic TATOOINE SAND. On the rear cover, we will engrave your name and identify you as an EXPEDITION COLLEAGUE. We are only building 1138 of these watches as each requires quite a bit of work. This is the ultimate Tatooine collectible. Your $107 includes priority shipping within the USA. (Shipping to Canada add $5, International add $12.)

I ordered the Limited Version.

You can order your Watch here!

Save Lars

Today is my Birthday. If you want to do my a favor please go to http://www.savelars.com and do a donation (starting with 2$).

This is a project of my friend Mark Dermul from Belgium.

It has nothing to do with me. This is a Project about the Rescue of the “Lars Homestead”.  As you may know Luke Skywalker was raised by his Uncle Own Lars on Tatooine. The original Film Location is in Tunisia and Mark is trying to renovate it because time and weather nearly destroyed it.

His target is to gain 10.000$ and this is fully approved by Lucasfilm.

Please help. I donate myself too.

Ich habe heute geburtstag. Wer mir eine kleine Freude machen möchte der kann gerne auf http://www.savelars.com gehen und etwas spenden (von 2$ aufwärts).

Das ganze ist ein Projekt meines Bekannten Mark Dermul aus Belgien.

Es geht hier um die Rettung der “Lars Homestead”.

Hierbei handelt es sich nicht um etwas von mir sonder um den Orginal Drehort von Luke Skywalkers Heimat (Sein Onkel hiess Own Lars) in Tunesien. Zeit und Wetter haben den Drehort fast komplett Zerstört und Mark versucht ihn wieder zu restaurieren.

Ziel ist es 10.000 $ zu sammeln. Das ganze Projekt ist offizielle von Lucasfilm genehmig.

Bitte unterstützt Mark. Ich selber auch auch gespendet.
