A great new British watchmaker Elliot Brown
At Page and Cooper we are known for finding those interesting and intriguing watchmakers who offer something exceptional for the true watch enthusiast and let me tell you, when we are presented with a new watch it goes under our own very close scrutiny. We want to know every detail, movement, case design, seals, crystals, testing...everything.
So when we were introduced to a new British watchmaker by a contact within the industry who said “you guys are perfect for each other”, we were intrigued.
Elliot Brown are a new and innovative British watchmaker, whose founders have over two decades of ‘hands on’ watchmaking experience. Elliot Brown watches are designed as ‘the watch for any occasion’, from the boardroom to the beach, from dinner to the dirt track. Smart enough to wear with a best shirt, yet great with a t-shirt and jeans.
Their beauty lies not only in their modern British design aesthetic, but in the depth of the detailing and ultra-tough construction that, unlike many so-called sports watches, isn’t just skin deep.
Elliot Brown use only Swiss movements from amongst the finest Swiss Movement Makers. All major components are made from 316 Marine grade stainless steel and in a range of contemporary finishes including black, bead-blasted gun-metal, or brushed and polished stainless steel. Crowns are push action with triple seals and knurled so they are easy to grip with wet, cold or muddy hands.
The case back is beautifully engineered with stamped and laser etched detailing secured with 6 hex bolts set to a particular torque setting thus ensuring a perfect seal and grip to hold the unique Elliot Brown anti-shock movement housing it in just the right position.
Faces are designed to be bold and easy to read in any light conditions, with Super Luminova luminescent detailing. Even the strap clasps are engraved with luminous infill so you can find your watch at night even when it’s upside down!
There are a wide variety of beautifully made straps in a range of oiled leathers, ballistic nylon webbing and solid steel bracelets. Strap pins are machined from solid stainless steel and simply screw in, so strap changes are quick and easy. Every strap has a secure deployment clasp – the solid stainless steel bracelets have micro adjustment to conveniently fit over a wetsuit.
In fact the attention to detail would shame many manufacturers asking 10 times the price.
Be amongst the first to discover a great new British watchmaker. Give an Elliot Brown watch your wrist time and you won't be disappointed.
