I had the opportunity to review one of these beautiful timepieces from Elliot Brown. They are a new and upcoming company that i believe will be a great success into the Watch world. Some history on the company. The company was founded by Ian Elliot and Alex Brown who prior to starting Elliot Brown, Built as well as maintained the Brand, Animal, a surfing brand. Their key focus on the brand is to evolve the current timepieces of today into something that will be built to last.
We received the Bloxworth. Although here at Anchor Division, we are not experts in timepieces. We usually leave that up to our friends at Hodinkee orWorn & Wound. We can give you some basic information and our initial impression of this watch. The Bloxworth is a classic ‘tech-diver’ chronograph designed for those who like a little more function, the Bloxworth is a true go-anywhere, do-anything watch.
A classic ‘tech-diver’ chronograph designed for those who like a little more function, the Bloxworth is a true go-anywhere, do-anything watch.
Available in eight colourways and three case finishes including black, sandblasted gunmetal, and brushed and polished stainless steel. Interchangeable strapping options include canvas, solid steel bracelets, and pebbled leather.The Bloxworth’s Swiss-made 13-jewel chronograph movement has a five-year battery life and is secured inside our proprietary shock-absorbing steel movement housing. The 44mm diameter case is machined from solid 316L marine-grade stainless steel case and individually pressure tested to 20ATM twice during construction, and finished with a hardened anti-reflective mineral crystal for clear vision in all conditions.The dial, hands and 0-20 markers on the bezel all have long-lasting Superluminova detailing that provides outstanding legibility.
The outer edge of the bezel is machined for confident grip, and only rotates anticlockwise, so it can only show a shorter remaining time if it’s accidentally knocked. The crown and push-buttons are knurled for superior grip in harsh conditions.The caseback is bolted down, not threaded, because it’s the best way of holding the shock-absorbing movement housing accurately inside the case.The screwdriver that’s included with every watch can be used to adjust the length of the steel bracelets and remove the solid stainless steel strap bars. Bracelets are constructed from 316L stainless steel with solid screw-in link-pins for maximum strength. The heavy-duty clasp has micro-adjustment to fine-tune the fit or extend quickly and elegantly for use over a wetsuit.
