On the face of it, these oh-so-stylish Elliot Brown watches belong on the wrists of those whose adventures go little beyond a casual cycle in the countryside. They shimmer with all the class and elegance of every other up market wrist watch out there. Even on closer inspection you’ll struggle to find anything out of the ordinary in terms of function and performance. So, when a note saying “please don’t look after it!” accompanied my new Elliot Brown Kimmeridge, I started to put the pieces together — these are no ordinary watches! A closer look at the Elliot Brown brand and their ambassadors helps one understand what these watches are really about.
These are no ordinary watches!
Meticulously designed with the true seafaring adventurer in mind, these watches are virtually bomb-proof! Every single watch is immersed in water at 200m, amongst other tests in equally harsh conditions — no batch testing here. And as if that’s not enough, their latest testing stunt saw their Broadstone model strapped to the mast of a racing yacht in the 2015/16 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race — it survived the whole year, ticking away perfectly from start to finish!
With Swiss-made chronograph movement, a shock-absorbing movement holder, marine-grade stainless steel case, and a hardened mineral crystal face with anti-reflective coating (amongst other exceptional components), it really is no wonder these waterproof and shockproof watches are proving such a hit in the adventure world.
And with a ladies range, a vast array of colourful new rubber straps, and 5 different design ranges to choose from, there really is something for everyone, no matter the scale of your adventures.
