Elliot Brown Holton (101-002-R04) Watch - Olive Green EPDM Rubber Strap

This Holton Professional watch was developed in response to a request from a specialist branch of the military who demanded a fit-for-purpose professional watch capable of a life in the field. The Holton Professional line of watches by Elliot Brown is the first military issued watch from a British company in over ten years and prior to being approved, was the subject of intense testing, surviving some of the most hostile conditions imaginable.

This timepiece is capable of prolonged exposure to water and dust, durable, shock resistant, clear visibility day or night, unidirectional timing bezel operable with a gloved hand, easy strap changes and comfortable strapping options that don't break. The specification of the bezel gives a perfect insight into the level of detail required for the project to be successful.

A precise 120 click high grip bezel houses a stainless steel insert precisely embossed with hours and minutes indentations then flooded with high grade C3 SuperLuminova. The outer knurling is slightly higher than the insert to form a high grip surface so you can be sure your hand will not slip from its grip even with a wet gloved hand. The bezel and housing are matt bead blasted, hardened to 1200HV (Vickers hardness scale) then a 0.8 micron PVD coating is applied whose hardness matches that of the stainless steel components.

The recessed crown sits neatly out of harms way at 4H and because of it's proprietary triple-seal, retains the immense water protection. An additional screw down mechanism locks the crown into the case.

All EB Watch straps have a uniform width of 22mm. Because of this you can interchangeably custom fit any EB strap to any EB watch case. To find out more about Elliot Brown's Straps see PDF below‚ Elliot Brown Straps & Sizing.

Comes with a driver tool that is made to fit the solid stainless screw-in retaining bars that hold the straps. Read PDF attachment below for Care & Maintenance of your Elliot Brown watch.

Please Note: The bezel is unapologetically fit for purpose. Please be aware it is likely to catch or wear shirt cuffs etc.

Elliot Brown Professional Watch

Bezel
High grip, uni-directional divers bezel case hardened to 1200HV Vickers hardness with matte PVD coating whose hardness matches that of the hardened bezel. Highly resistant to marking and provides an outer layer of protection for the watch. The high grip texture enables the bezel to be turned by gripping the sides or pressing downwards and the fine hobnail pattern ensures the bezel can't be caught on anything, turning it accidentally.

Case
316L marine-grade stainless steel with anti-reflective gunmetal PVD. The case is treated with an anti-fingerprint coating that naturally repels mud and grime. PVD thickness 0.8 microns so it wears beautifully for years - the maximum possible thickness without loss of definition on case detailing (approx twice the industry standard thickness). Every watch is individually pressure tested to 200m at several points during production.

Crown
Easy to use yet highly protected. Deeply recessed, screws down into watch case, triple sealed, hobnail knurling for secure grip, 4H position keeps it out of harms way.

Dial
The dial is easy to read at a glance day or night with a military bearing. The hour markers are bold C3-coated parallelograms reminiscent of 1970s military dive watches, brought up to date with EB's trademark 12-3-6-9 cardinal graphics, with a white triangle at 12H to help orientate the watch when it's dark.

Hands
Clear differentiation between hours, minutes and seconds hands with minimal chance of confusion. Short stubby sword hour hand, long slender parallel minutes hand with pointed tip that reaches precisely to the minute markers. The seconds hand has a fine amber painted tip and C3 filled arrow head counterbalanced by a dark gunmetal lollipop at the other end.

Crystal
Bevelled 2mm sapphire with anti reflective coating applied to the inner surface to minimise glare for perfect visibility in all light conditions. It's mounted fractionally below the hardened bezel to minimise the chance of the edge becoming chipped, with a matching black sealing ring. To pass QC, every crystal must be capable of withstanding an impact applied 3 times by a 17mm steel ball dropped from 0.5m.

Movement
Swiss Ronda calibre 715 with low-battery/end of life indicator that prevents the watch being issued with a low battery. It is housed inside a proprietary shock protection system consisting of a steel housing suspended by elastomer shock absorbers. Projected battery life is approximately 3 years.

Strap
The olive green rubber strap that is perfect for outdoor sports and water activities since it does not absorb water.

Strap Fixing
Solid steel strap bars that screw directly into the case shoulders, driven by a 5-lobe head so that the driver (included with the watch) can't slip or climb out, ensuring simple and fast strap changes whilst also providing maximum security - no spring-bars to break.

Caseback
Bolted down using hex bolts creating a perfect compression seal and correct tension for the shock absorption system. Multiple surfaces minimise skin contact for comfort and bolting the case down ensures the case back logo and detailing are always aligned perfectly.
