Elliot Brown are a British brand building rugged, durable watches for adventurers. Since 2013, the two founders, Ian Elliot and Alex Brown, have thrown away the rule book to create watches that exceed all expectations. 100% fit for purpose, Elliot Brown watches are tested in the real world. Honest and genuine, its easy to see why this brand has such a loyal following. Collaborations with the RNLI, Armed Forces, Mountain Rescue England & Wales, government agencies and blue light services all serve to underline the functionality and ultimate reliability of Elliot Brown watches.
The Holton Professional was developed in collaboration with a specialist branch of the British armed forces. It’s the first new military issue watch to be created by a British watch company in more than ten years. The 101-001 model has a NATO stock number befitting of its military issued status. The Holton came about as a natural consequence of Canford watches being worn by members of the military community. Borne out of one of the many charitable military projects Elliot Brown undertake whose recipients requested an Elliot Brown watch of professional calibre with some very specific functional requirements.
The Canford range typifies the watch making DNA of Elliot Brown perfectly. With its quiet, handsome styling, Canford is the watch you need never take off your wrist. Smart enough to wear with a suit, it is also practical enough to cope with whatever tough conditions you can throw at it. Classic understated champagne metallic cream dials with subtle blue metallic hands contrast with matt gunmetal cases. Ultra clear indexes are inspired by military instrumentation. Case finishes include brushed black, matt bead-blasted gun-metal, or brushed and polished stainless steel. Additionally, all 22mm straps are an easy fit for personal customisation.
Bloxworth is a range of classic "tech-diver" chronographs. Designed for those who like a little more function, it is a true go-anywhere, do-anything watch. Equipped with a Swiss-made 13-jewel chronograph movement, it has a three-year battery life and is secured inside the brand's own shock-absorbing steel movement housing. The 44mm diameter case is pebble-like so it wears beautifully even on smaller wrists and is machined from solid 316L marine-grade stainless steel. Case finishes include matt black, bead blasted gunmetal, tungsten PVD, and brushed / polished stainless steel.
The Tyneham collection is inspired by one of Elliot Brown's favourite UK coastal retreats. Built to thrive in harsh conditions, Tyneham is the sort of automatic you can wear and never worry about, equipped with exquisitely considered details. Everything you need and nothing you don’t packed into a 41mm case so proportionally balanced that it demands a second glance.
Elliot Brown were so often asked to make a credible, durable watch collection for smaller wrists that in 2017 they made it a reality. With the best-selling Canford as the starting point, they worked through over fifty dial designs before they finally agreed on 'the one'. Gone are the oversized instrumentation-style dial graphics and in its place comes slender, understated simplicity, imparting its elegance on all who wear it. A muted palette of softly coloured leathers, durable bracelets, and graceful dials offer a wide choice - all carefully curated to compliment a wide variety of wardrobe shades. The Kimmeridge takes its name from Kimmeridge Bay on Dorset’s Jurassic coastline – a very special place where the Elliot Brown founders spend many hours in the water and on the coastline.
Elliot Brown make it an absolute breeze to change your watch strap yourself. Using the 5 lobe tool supplied with your watch, the strap bars simply unscrew in a matter of seconds. Also, to make life even easier, all their men's watches take the same width of strap: 22mm. With a range of practical straps created with useability and longevity in mind, it's a great idea to invest in a few different options. We love the thought and attention to detail that has gone into their webbing straps. However, take a look at leather and bracelet options too.
