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: 

Premium matt black EPDM rubber strap, perfect for all sports. Silicone-free, hypo-allergenic, unaffected by ozone, seawater, or UV. Smart appearance with chamfered edges to slide underneath shirt cuffs. All 22mm Elliot Brown straps also fit.
 

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 sandblasted stainless steel. Every watch is individually tested to 200m at air and water at several points during production.
 

Dial: 

Easy to read at a glance day or night with military styling that’s relevant 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 green 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. 
 

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.
 

Sizing

  • 9H-3H 43mm excluding crown
  • 12H-6H - 52mm max to tip of case shoulders
  • Maximum thickness 12mm
  • Fits up to 190mm/7.5" wrist on rubber strap
  • Our leather and webbing straps fit larger wrists, and metal bracelets can have any number of links added 
     

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.
