Seaholm is a brand founded in 2013 by Todd Adams, a former executive of the Yeti company which has famously brought modern and rugged adventure coolers to the world of outdoorsy people. The brand released three models all at once—a field watch, The Rover, a chronograph, The Flats, and a diver, the Offshore, the latter being the model we are taking a look at today. The brand so far has you covered for all types of adventures you could go on, and as we will see, the OffShore packs a punch of neat features that make a it a reliable tool watch.
If you are a military watch buff, then you already know that the original A-11 was made famous by US manufacturers Elgin, Waltham, and Bulova. These vintage pieces were constructed according to American military specs to be robust, legible, and accurate in the field. They had the added benefit of a hacking seconds hand, so that time could be synchronized.
RZE may not need an introduction although the brand is barely over two years old. It has made a name for itself as soon as it released its first model, the Resolute, a rugged full-titanium field watch with great specifications and an attractive price tag. Following the success of the Resolute, RZE released the Endeavour, another full-titanium watch--this time designed to take on the underwater world. In 2021, the brand released its third model, again in titanium but this time aiming for the race tracks with their Valour meca-quartz chronograph, which we’re taking a look at here.
