Selecting the highest-quality components was pivotal, ensuring our watches possess not only striking beauty but exceptional durability. Materials such as 316L Marine grade steel, sapphire glass, and bio-leather straps were meticulously chosen.

Our decision to incorporate a distinctive diamond pattern flank engraving, a rarity in watch design, and a vibrant sunburst pattern for the dials was deliberate. The meticulous thought process and unwavering attention to detail invested in achieving the perfect aesthetic equilibrium and overall design of these watches cannot be overstated.

For our chronographs, we’ve adopted a distinctive ‘Screw Down’ case back easily identifiable by its outer edge notches. This specific case back style is a hallmark of diver’s watches and other timepieces designed for substantial water resistance. Its threaded design firmly secures the caseback, offering enhanced safeguarding against water and harsh environments.

Adorned with the engraved HILTS logo, detailed specifications, and an exclusive serial number, this surface bears the mark of quality and individuality.

The Racing Roots: Unveiling the Origins of British Racing Green

The origins of the color in motorsports trace back to the early 20th century when the UK’s speed limit was a mere 12mph. Consequently, British road races were held in Ireland, prompting the adoption of the Emerald Isle’s color for their cars in international competitions.

Legend has it that the inaugural Monaco GP of 1929 marked the debut of the hue recognized today as British Racing Green. William Grover-Williams played a pivotal role by re-spraying a traditionally light blue Bugatti in green, solidifying its iconic status in history.

In homage to Richard James David “Dickie” Attwood, whose journey began as an apprentice at Jaguar in 1960, gradually advancing through various racing classes to compete in Formula One and Sports Cars. His crowning achievement came in 1970 when he clinched victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans while driving a Porsche 917, marking the onset of Porsche’s historic 19 triumphs at this iconic race.

Attwood’s legacy extended beyond racing; he was handpicked by Steve McQueen to feature in the film “Le Mans.” Notably, McQueen’s car in the movie, also a Porsche 917, adorned the distinctive Gulf blue, orange, and white livery.

Our “reverse panda” design pays homage to The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, fondly known as ‘The Brickyard.’ Renowned as the host of prestigious races such as the Indy 500, the Brickyard 400, the Verizon 200, and formerly the United States Grand Prix.

Ranked as the third-oldest permanent automobile race track globally, trailing only Brooklands and the Milwaukee Mile, its grandeur extends to boasting the highest-capacity sports venue seating up to 257,325 spectators.

Honoring the legacy of Dan Gurney, a trailblazer who secured victories across Sports Cars, Formula 1, NASCAR, and IndyCar, a feat unmatched by any other driver. Gurney’s iconic champagne spray at Le Mans in 1967 established a tradition observed in all motorsports podium ceremonies.

An innovator at heart, as the owner of All American Racers, he introduced groundbreaking advancements such as the Gurney flap, revolutionizing downforce while minimizing aerodynamic drag. Notably, Gurney made history at the 1968 German Grand Prix as the first driver ever to utilize a full-face helmet in Grand Prix racing, showcasing his relentless pursuit of innovation and safety.
