experience from the world of extreme sports, they threw off their career comfort blankets to develop a range of durable watches that could travel on every adventure, through every wave and look good on any occasion.
Every Elliot Brown is the result of 1000’s of hours spent obsessing over the smallest details; refining, improving, inventing, and testing. These award-winning watches shrug off harsh elements and are relied upon for ocean crossings, mountain rescues, and just about any kind of extreme or arduous adventure.
Testing, testing Each watch must pass a rigorous testing regime, including immersion in water at 200m or 300m. It’s typical of the lengths this British brand goes to, in making sure that each one is ready for duty or on your next adventure. And now Elliot Brown have unveiled the first military issue watch from a British company in ten years, complete with NATO stock number (NSN)!
The unveiling of the Elliot Brown Holton Professional follows extensive R&D work and it was developed in direct response to contact from specialist military operators for a fit for purpose dive watch. This legacy entitles the Holton Professional to feature the famous Broad Arrow on the dial. It will enter military service as a piece of issued equipment for all serving members of a specific military unit, as well as a variant sold through select retailers.
Designed for divers, its name was inspired by the Royal Navy’s Cordite Factory at Holton Heath in Elliot Brown’s home county of Dorset. The watch has been tested to the necessary extremes, including high altitude jumps, long duration cold water immersion, dusty desert hideouts and diving in tropical waters. It has also passed a water pressure test at 200m. Its design is thoughtful and considerate of the work of military dive professionals. The bezel is unidirectional, luminous at night and can be turned using the palm of a cold, wet glove.
Elliot Brown co-founder, Ian Elliot, says, “Our inspiration came from historical dive watches. It had to be original and innovative but have a military bearing that would be relevant and familiar. This watch is typical of our meticulous attention to detail.”
The Holton is equipped with a Swiss movement housed inside a shock protection system, 2mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal and the triple sealed crown is deeply recessed and screws into the case to protect against moisture and knocks. The fitted black NATO strap is extra-long to enable fitting over a dry or wet suit. Alternatively, it comes on a soft EPDM rubber strap that’s hypoallergenic and isn’t sticky like silicone can be. It’s resistant to seawater, UV and extremely cold temperatures. From £425.
The Holton Professional is available for pre-sale now via the Elliot Brown website: elliotbrownwatches.com.
