A gunmetal Holton with all its hard earned military stripes but knocked back a notch with a satin bead blasted steel case with X1 C3 Superluminova high performance luminous and a matt black dial and case-hardened bezel insert for ultra clear visibility in all conditions.
It's a combination that is possibly more wearable more of the time.
To use the 12hr bezel, simply turn it anticlockwise until the hour markers on the bezel correspond to the appropriate time difference and you can read off the time in the second time zone using the hour hand in conjunction with the bezel.
If you're struggling to choose between the quartz and automatic versions, we wrote a little article here on the pros and cons of each.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.
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 ultra high grip bezel houses a hardened stainless steel insert precisely etched with 12hr markings then flooded with X1 C3 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.
Both components are matt bead blasted, then a black PVD coating is applied to the insert to create clarity against the X1 C3.
If you'd like a metal bracelet, the B06 matches perfectly.
N.B. this bezel is unapologetically fit for purpose. Please be warned it is likely to catch or wear shirt cuffs etc.
The last two photos are stills taken from a video of a quartz Holton and a Kimmeridge strapped to an ROV in the Gulf of Mexico in March 2020, still working at 3900ft - almost 3/4 mile underwater.
