Full Description

The Bloxworth 3HD Orange.

 

A beautiful dive watch inspired by classic sports watches from the 50’s and 60’s, detailed entirely for today’s demanding audience.

 

A bright orange ‘sandwich’ dial and matching strap cause heads to turn and never look old. Don’t be fooled by the handsome lines of this watch though. Every ounce of its exquisite detailing is engineered to excel in the harshest environments with ‘EB’ weapons grade DNA fully intact.

 

There’s elegant simplicity in abundance yet glancing at the spec list is all you need to know that this is a fit-for-purpose workhorse.

Box profile, toughened, anti-reflective sapphire crystal is perfectly framed by a precision engineered ceramic bezel with the clearest markings. A finely polished steel highlight blends into vertically machined splines of the coin-edged bezel, sitting proud of the watch case just enough for perfect handling even with a gloved hand.

 

As part of the Bloxworth Heritage Diver collection, this model enjoyed two years of attention from the founders who gradually honed into the watch you see here. At 40mm diameter it’s designed for any wrist size, as is the rubber strap with beautifully detailed split buckle deployant mechanism and internal rope breather lines from our harbour-side headquarters. Read more about the rubber straps and check out the Instructions tab on how to cut to size.

 

As with our other watch collections, 100% of our watches must pass a series of stringent tests including a 200m pressure test in water before they are deemed fit for use. We also smash a number of watches from every batch with a 3kg stainless steel pendulum mallet to ensure the movement shock protection system is fully operational. That’s an impact force of circa 500G in case you were wondering. This level of testing is by no means mandatory but it does mean you can have complete confidence, backed up by a no nonsense 5 year warranty.

Instructions

Much like a metal bracelet that starts off at its longest, your rubber strap starts long and is designed to be adjusted to fit.

Allow yourself plenty of time, and try your watch and strap on your wrist before you start cutting to work out how much to shorten the strap by.

Having looked at the strap length on your wrist, if you need to shorten the strap, take the watch off, place it on a soft surface and remove one strap end from the buckle using the pointed tool (included) to push into the holes in the sides of the buckle to release the spring bar. Be careful not to lose the spring bar.

With a sharp knife or scissors, carefully cut just one section from the free end, cutting neatly and carefully along the centre of the first guide groove on the inner surface of the strap at the end nearest the buckle. Don't be tempted to cut two sections at once.

Now refit the strap end back into the buckle depressing the spring bar to locate into the hole position nearest the centre join of the buckle. Use your fingernail or a spring bar tool if you have one.

Now try the strap on your wrist again - it’s surprising how much removing just one rubber section changes the size.

If the strap still needs to be smaller, repeat the above steps, alternating which side you cut down until the strap is the perfect length.

Each time, re-attach the strap using the holes nearest the centre of the buckle so you can always increase the size a little just in case.

The attachment holes in the buckle are half the length of the strap sections so if you end up a tad too tight or a tad too loose, adjust which set of holes the strap attaches to in the buckle until it’s perfect.

It pays to be patient so you don't end up cutting your strap too short. Remember as your body temperature increases, your wrist size will increase too.

Warranty

We design and re-design every component to make watches that are fundamentally fit-for-purpose, minimising or eliminating typical points of failure such as spring bars breaking, straps snapping, or watches leaking - all potentially catastrophic failures.

Any watches damaged in service can be repaired quickly and economically at our in-house workshop in Poole and returned to service with the minimum of disruption.

Not only is our servicing world class, the warranty has no small print. It’s honest, comprehensive, and straightforward. The whole watch is covered for 5 years, not just the movement. The only exclusions are accidental damage, the battery and wear & tear.
