Elliot Brown is the first British company for ten years to design a military issue watch complete with NATO stock number.  Worth £425, the Elliot Brown Holton Professional 001 watch has been built to spec following months of research with specialist military operators.

We’re giving you the opportunity to win one.

The finished design is a watch fit for purpose. Whether that be mountainous climbs, underwater encounters or all-weather exploration. Yet, its elegant style doesn’t look out of place in the mess or the gym.

We consider it the perfect present for a family member or partner looking to stay connected to their military roots and continue their adventurous, outdoor way of life.

The Elliot Brown Holton Professional 001 has been tested to the extreme. Having been put through high altitude jumps, long duration cold water immersion, dusty desert hideouts and multiple Everest summits.

In fact, Elliot Brown watches are so reliably well made that they’ve been trusted to design watches not just for the British military, but also Mountain Rescue, the Fire Brigade and hot off the press is the announcement of a collaboration with the RNLI launching this autumn.

The Holton Professional 001 from Elliot Brown is a truly original and innovative timepiece which combines meticulous attention to detail with the comforting clarity of a military inspired design.
