Full Description

The Holton Professional 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.

 

Since its launch five years ago, the Holton is earning its place as the watch of choice for military and kinetic security personnel with thousands worn worldwide.

 

This bespoke version is built to order and is only available to past and present members of SO15 EOD. It is not available to the general public. 
 

From every watch sold, we will donate £40 to a charity chosen by the project sponsor. 

 

This bespoke watch is a pre order, and will be built to order; it's not a model kept in stock.

 

The order book will be kept open until 31st May 2021 at which point this page will be taken down in order for production to start.

The rubber strapped watches will fit up to 185mm/7.5" wrist. If your wrist is larger than this, we'd suggest choosing the metal strap option, or email us for an alternative.

 

NB: Please note that dial graphics may appear slightly different in real life than they appear on your monitor or device. Dark grey, dark green, and dark blue printing on a black background will be less obvious in real life than on a visual.

Specification

Bezel:
A precise 120 click high grip bezel houses a hardened stainless steel insert precisely embossed with hours and minutes markings then flooded with high grade C3 SuperLuminova. The hobnail outer knurling is slightly higher than the insert to form a high grip surface even when using the palm of a gloved hand. 
 

Straps:
Straps are easily changed and secured via solid steel screw in bars operated with a five lobe tool and matching socket in the strap bar ends.
 

Crown:
The recessed screw-down crown is located out of harm's way at 4H whilst retaining the water protection afforded by our proprietary seals. 
 

Case:
316L stainless steel, sandblasted and plated in anti-reflective dark gunmetal grey PVD. Every watch is individually tested to 200m at air and water at several points during production.
9H-3H 43mm excluding crown
12H-6H - 52mm max to tip of case shoulders
Maximum thickness 12mm
 
Dial:
Easy to read at a glance day or night with a military design language that’s appropriate and familiar. The hour markers are bold C3-coated pyramids reminiscent of 1970s military dive watches, brought up to date with our trademark 12-3-6-9 cardinal graphics, with a white chevron 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 maroon tip and C3 filled arrow head counterbalanced by a dark gunmetal ‘lollipop’
 

Glass:
Bevelled 2mm sapphire glass with anti reflective coating applied to the inner surface to minimise glare for perfect visibility in all light conditions. Mounted fractionally below the hardened bezel to minimise the chance of the edge getting chipped, fitted using a black sealing ring.
 

Movement:
Swiss Ronda calibre 715 with low-battery/end of life indicator that reduces the risk of the watch being worn with a low battery. It is housed inside our proprietary shock protection system consisting of a steel housing suspended by elastomer shock absorbers. Three year battery life. Typical accuracy: -10/+20secs per month
 

Strap bars:
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.
 

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. The caseback is always aligned vertically.
