The Ocean Specific + Elliot Brown Holton Professional Blue collaboration was inspired and created to become the perfect fit-for-purpose water sports watch for the Ocean Waterman lifestyle.
Based on the best selling Holton Professional quartz watch (originally developed in response to a request from a specialist branch of the military) it was subjected to intense testing, surviving some of the most hostile conditions imaginable. It became the first military issued watch from a British company in over ten years.
Capable of prolongued exposure to sun and water, the durable, shock resistant Holton Professional Blue possesses clear visibility day or night and a unidirectional timing bezel designed to be operable with a gloved hand.
This Ocean Specific special edition is cased in matt vapour blasted stainless steel, coupled with a deep sunray ocean blue dial with subdued gunmetal bezel and matching soft black rubber Elliot Brown custom strap.
The Ocean Specific logo is subtly printed at 6h on the dial in a colour matching the Super-Luminova luminous detailing, reminiscent of Purbeck Stone found on Dorset’s Jurassic Coastline where the collaboration began.
The specification of the bezel gives a perfect insight into the level of detail required for sub-aqua.
A precise 120 click high grip bezel houses a stainless steel insert precisely embossed with hours and minutes indentations then flooded with high grade C3 Super-Luminova. 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, hardened to 1200HV (Vickers hardness scale).
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.
The recessed crown sits neatly out of harms way at 4H whilst retaining the immense water protection afforded by proprietary triple seals. An additional screw down mechanism locks the crown into the case for added security during rough handling.
The Holton Professional Blue is a beautiful military grade timepiece inspired by and designed for ocean life.
