Full Description

WHITEOUT takes inspiration from elite military units who operate covertly in the highlands, the rocky slopes and the snow-capped summits of mountainous regions around the world. Their equipment must be as efficient and durable as undetectable.

Featuring a fully luminous dial with high definition indexes, including a Broad Arrow GMT hand. The automatic movement is housed within a rugged shock protection cell, inside a frosted steel case with a GMT bezel and matching bracelet.

This limited release is the perfect tool watch for total concealment in some of the coldest and most inhospitable environments on earth.

If you're after proof that less really is more, the Holton was developed with a specialist branch of the British military, survived the most extreme testing perfectly in tact and instantly won hearts and minds, more than any other watch in our history.

The Brief: capable of prolonged exposure to water and dust, durable, shock resistant, clear visibility day or night,  unidirectional ultra high grip timing bezel operable with a gloved hand, easy strap changes and comfortable strapping options that don't break.
 
A precise 120 click ultra high grip bezel houses a stainless steel GMT insert precisely embossed with hours and minutes indentations then flooded with high grade BGW9 SuperLuminova. The hobnail outer knurling is slightly higher than the insert to form a high grip surface for trustworthy operation even when using the palm of a wet gloved hand.

N.B. this bezel is unapologetically fit for purpose. Please be warned it is likely to catch or wear shirt cuffs etc.

It's a no nonsense human powered automatic, fit for purpose and ready for duty, so much so that some are lauding it the ultimate off-grid watch. So it's no coincidence that it's technical specification reads like the ultimate watch kit check list.

As our way of saying thank you to serving and ex serving military personnel, we offer 20% military and 'blue light' discount on all our watches. Please email sales@elliotbrownwatches.com with proof of service and to find out more.
