NEONOS watches is a collective of four product designers based in Dublin, Ireland. The team has over 50 years of design experience including custom one-off watches. Their debut watch launches on Kickstarter today – the HOLLAND//01 forged carbon dive watch.
The HOLLAND//01 is a forged carbon and 316 DLC stainless steel dive watch rated to 300m. It comes with an HZ 6460 automatic 24hr GMT movement with a 40-hour reserve (28,800bph). The watch takes inspiration from Irish engineer, John P. Holland, recognised as “the father of the modern submarine” and more modern military submarines. The dual body forged carbon and DLC stainless steel case creates a subtle contrast while also giving strength and a water tight seal, along with the unique U-shaped lugs, electric blue rings and minimalist dial the HOLLAND//01 is an eye-catching timepiece.
With a diameter of 44mm, 57mm lug to lug and 14.5mm in height, the HOLLAND//01 will definitely stand out from the crowd.
