HOLOTYPE (Tonka Truck For Your Wrist)

By TLex:
When I was a kid there was only one toy the stood test of time, one toy that took the beatings and abuse that other toys couldn't and that was the Tonka Truck. When I first saw images of the HOLOTYPE I immediately drew parallels with the Tonka Truck. The HOLOTYPE is one seriously rugged and chunky looking piece, it looks like it was built to not only survive the rigors of every day life, but to take a lot, lot more. It's a Tonka Truck for your wrist! Great work Jason, and good luck with it!

From Jason Lim
of Halios Watches
: Ask us to describe the perfect watch in one word, and our answer would be the following: TOOL. The concept of the no frills, rugged and indestructible tool watch is nothing new, but it remains our defining vision and grounding philosophy.

Every HALIOS watch is built to uncompromising standards of durability, of brute functionality. You'd buy one if you wanted to be sure that your watch is ready when you are, above ground or underwater.

Our design cues come from the vintage dive watches of the 60s and 70s. The solid, chunky lines of our cases and clean, supreme legibility of our dials serve to fulfill both aesthetic and performance ideals.
