L&H Watches, the micro-brand watch company, develops and distributes accurate Swiss timepieces that deliver value and unique design features. Our launch model, The Atlantic, comes in two variations; a black & white model, and is ideal for travelers as well as aviation or watch enthusiasts.

As a commercial pilot, Mark has designed The Atlantic with these groups in mind. Having looked in vain for a watch that suited his needs, he decided the best way to get value for money was to design one; a watch that's accurate, unique, clear to read day or night, and has the ability to track a second time zone. 

Design features include:

Sellita 330 movement, +/- 5 seconds 

Lume dial and ceramic bezel for legibility at night

Ability to track 2 time zones

24-hour watch dial

Domed sapphire crystal

Water-resistant to 10 atmospheres

Display case-back with decorative Sellita movement

Laser engraved time zones with GMT offsets n bezel case-back

Russet brown leather strap

Measurements:

  • 42mm case diameter
  • 48mm lug to lug
  • 12.5mm height
  • 20mm lug width
