SEAHOLM® RECOGNIZED IN GEAR PATROL ALONG WITH ROLEX, TUDOR AND BREITLING

Founded in 2007 in New York City, Gear Patrol is an award-winning print and digital publication, committed to Product Journalism.

The Gear Patrol article by Ashton Tracy highlights the essential importance of shock protection in watches. The Seaholm Rover is recognized along with the Rolex Explorer, Tudor North Flag, Casio G-Shock and Breitling Emergency as examples of watches that best protect against the effects of shock.

"ISO 1413 is the industry standard for shock resistance.... The folks over at Seaholm decided this wasn’t good enough and they real-world tested their watches by dropping them onto a piece of timber from a height of 10 feet... (3 times the standard)"

The Seaholm White Paper also has an in-depth explanation of the time keeping and durability benefits of good shock protection in watches.

Ashton Tracy is one of the foremost horological writers today, writing for publications including Quill & Pad, World Tempus, The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) Journal, Worn & Wound, Watches By SJX, International Watch, and The Horological Journal, the oldest continuously published technical journal in the world.

Free-diving is an art that one fine tunes over years and countless hours of experience, attention and study. It challenges human endurance and product capabilities alike. At SEAHOLM, our watches go through rigorous testing. Lab tests designed to exceed industry standards and push the capabilities of our watches.  But there is no way to better test them than in the field.

We partner with people that we know will put our watches to the test; not just over a couple of days, but over months and years of use. One of those people is Brandon Lillard, a globe-trotting waterman. Brandon is an accomplished skydiver, BASE jumper, spear-fisherman, surfer, World Surf League water patrol and overall saltwater junkie.
