History of Elliot Brown
Elliot brown watches are ultra-tough and shrouded in contemporary elegance. Their modernistic designs make the perfect companion for the active outdoor gentleman. Alex Brown and partner, Ian Elliot (co-founder of the brand, Animal in 1988) learnt their trade by designing timepieces that were built with exceptional toughness to best suit their coastal lifestyles. Using unique skills that both designers had worked so hard to develop, Elliot and Brown have kept good focus on the quality of the overall finished product, this includes beautiful detailing to their selection of interchangeable nylon webbing, pebbled effect, and premium oil leathered straps.
Completely water-resistant and shock-proof, the timepieces are equipped with a number of beautiful functions to enable the common explorer to get the best use out of their wrist companion. Elliot Brown watches are engineered to standards far beyond that of any competitor. Their case designs hasve been re-shaped to create sporty styles which also culminate a sense of elegance for both the youthful and traditional wearer.
When designers of the brand, Ian Elliot and Alex brown first created their vision for their watch revelation, their designs would focus primarily on function rather than fashion, however as the brand’s philosophy has evolved, so have their exceptional design capabilities allowing timepieces to be worn for practicality as well as powerful statements. Elliot Brown watches comprise of two core collections. The Canford collection and the Bloxworth collection.
The Canford collection offers the elegance of a pilot’s watch with the added benefit of broader shoulders to evoke a sophisticated charm. The timepieces are understated, cool and collected. Available on a variety of different coloured straps, textured finishes and detailing, Canford watches can be enjoyed as a stylish casual day-to-day accessory or dressed up with a more sophisticated after-dark outfit. The clean open dial spaces that accommodate crisp hour indexes and chunky chiseled hour and minute indices are available in nine different variations and sit quietly handsome among their rugged case designs. No matter how tough the external conditions or how smart the evening attire, the Elliot Brown Canford collection comprises of the type of watches you need never take off the wrist. The majority of the straps which accommodate those Elliot Brown watches of the Canford collection are fitted with positive-locking deployment clasps and feature luminised engraving. The quartz movements situated at the heart of each of the Canford watches have a five year life and are secured inside a custom shock-absorbing steel mechanism. The internal rotating bezel is damped for glass-smooth silent action and both crowns have aggressive knurling and triple seals for harsh external conditions. The bolted down caseback ensures the best way of precisely orientating the shock absorbing movement within the case.
The Bloxworth collection consists of the classic tech-diver chronographs that have been meticulously crafted for those who like a little more function in their wristwatch. These Elliot Brown watches are available in eight different colourways and three case finishes which include sandblasted gunmetal, polished stainless steel and brushed stainless steel. The timepieces from the Elliot Brown Bloxworth collection are available in three interchangeable strap finishes and have been designed for a “go anywhere, do anything” approach. Their 12 jewel chronograph movements, similar to the Canford timepieces, have a five year battery life. The proprietary shock-absorbing steel movement is protected by an external 44mm 316L marine-grade stainless steel casing which has been individually pressure tested to 150m twice during its construction, followed by being placed in a water filled pressure vessel at 200m. All Elliot Brown watches have been finished with a hardened mineral glass window with inbuilt anti-reflective qualities. The dials, hands and 0-20 markers of the Bloxworth watches have been developed with long lasting SuperLumiNova treatment for high legibility. The outer edge of their bezels have been machined for a confident grip and can only be rotated clockwise to show a shorter dive remaining time.
Synonymous with quality and luxury, Elliot Brown watches deliver beauty on a profound scale. Each timepiece is equipped with a screwdriver to adjust the length of the watch’s stainless steel bracelet and remove the strap bars which have been securely held into place by solid screw-in link pins for ultimate strength.
