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.

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 stainless steel insert precisely embossed with hours and minutes indentations then flooded with high grade 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, hardened to 1200HV (Vickers hardness scale) then a 0.8 micron PVD coating is applied whose hardness matches that of the stainless steel components.

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.

Elliot Brown

The Elliot Brown company is a whole made up of two highly impressive halves. One half lives in the form of Ian Elliot, a co-founder of renowned watch brand Animal, and the very man who built the brand up from one innovative product and an 'unbreakable' watch-strap. The other half is Alex Brown, who notoriously turned down a job at Cartier to thrive in the exciting environment of surf company Animal's watch department. This information alone ought to give you a clue as to the true, understated cool of this attractive collection of watches.

Every Elliot Brown is the result of 1000’s of hours spent obsessing over the smallest details; refining, improving, inventing, and testing. These hard-wearing watches shrug off harsh elements and are relied upon for ocean crossings, mountain rescues, and just about any kind of extreme or arduous adventure.

With collaborations designing and producing bespoke watches for Military personnel and groups within the Security and Intelligence community, Elliot Brown have produced the first military issued watch from a British company in over a decade.

Platatac are proud to be authorised distributors for Elliot Brown in Australia.
