Classic tech-diver chrono that fuses form and function

If you’re looking for a hard-wearing watch with classic masculine styling and the chops to emerge unscathed from white water rapids or a punishing sea kayaking trip, allow us to present the Elliot Brown Bloxworth. Featuring a Swiss-made, 13-jewel chronograph movement secured inside a shock-absorbing steel housing, it offers precision and toughness in one no-nonsense package. The case is machined from solid 316L marine-grade stainless steel and finished with a hardened and tempered anti-reflective mineral crystal, for clear vision in all conditions as well as excellent scratch-resistant performance. The dial and hands feature luminous detailing for legibility, while the outer edge of the diver’s bezel has deep castellations for excellent grip. Unidirectional anticlockwise rotation ensures that if it is accidentally knocked when being used for timing, only a shorter remaining time will be indicated – a potential lifesaver when diving. Indeed, underwater performance is at the heart of the Bloxworth. The bolted caseback ensures a perfect seal, and every watch is individually pressure tested to 150m twice during construction, then placed in a water-filled pressure vessel that’s cranked up to 200m. This is a watch built to endure the toughest marine environments

  • This black and steel reference is arguably the most classic of all the Bloxworth 3HD models, its inspiration comes from sporting dive watches of the 50’s and 60’s, detailed entirely for today’s demanding audience.

    At first glance, the ‘101’ is undoubtedly a handsome watch but look closely, even for just a moment and perfectly considered details begin revealing themselves.

    A signature character of the collection is the unique basketweave texture created with part of the Elliot Brown shield subtly embossed into the recessed dial centre, the rubber strap surface and the bolted down compressor case back.

    The 316L stainless case is finely brushed with very subtle high polished highlights resulting in just the right amount of ‘pop’ on the wrist. The Bloxworth has a third chamfered surface between the top and side of the case which gives it a more pebble like appearance to reduce the apparent volume of the case lugs. For this 3HD collection the tiny chamfer is polished to tie in beautifully with the polished outer edge of the bezel and classically domed crown at 4H.

    This model sits perfectly on any wrist with its 40mm case / 41mm coin edged bezel for secure handling in all conditions yet its crammed full of weapons grade durability.

    The shock protected Swiss movement sits in a stainless cage that floats within the durable 316L stainless case. The bezel will look this good for years with a scratch resistant ceramic insert, brightly lumed markers and precise 120 click action. The high grip ‘coin edge’ provides easy handling whilst the triple sealed, screw down crown ensures the movement remains free of moisture and dust even down to 200m (the pressure every one of our watches has been tested to in water before it leaves the factory).

    Quick release strap bars are easy to remove (with the tool provided) making strap changes a doddle, they are also unbreakable for a long, hard life in the field.

    The finishing touches are the subtle 2mm anti-reflective box sapphire crystal and super compressor bolt down case back who’s seal improves with depth.

    Look inside the rubber strap and the delightful detailing continues with hand drawn rope breather lines carefully complimented with vent holes and cut marks to trim the strap down to size into the beautifully detailed split deployant buckle. This strap alone is the result of many 100’s of hours – typical of the in-house attention lavished upon every element of every watch. See the Instructions tab to read how to cut it to size.

  • Sustainability through longevity - Every Elliot Brown watch is designed and constructed to an extraordinarily high standard. These are time pieces which will last a generation or even a lifetime, with periodic servicing. All Elliot Brown watches are backed by a 5-year warranty.
  • It isn’t easy to carve out a niche in the premium watch industry, where some brands have marketing budgets that run into the tens of millions. But the founders of Elliot Brown knew right from the start what they wanted to build: unique, tough, wearable and extraordinarily capable watches that were made to live up to a standard, not produced down to a price point.

    To get there, they pooled all their collective expertise, passions and obsessions. Based in Dorset, Ian Elliot and Alex Brown both live and breathe a coastal, outdoor lifestyle where salt water, sand and mud place huge demands on kit. But with professional backgrounds in horology and materials sciences, they were well placed to imagine and execute the most durable watches on the planet.

    That ethos naturally led to collaborations with some of the most demanding users – round-the-world yachtsmen, firefighters, RNLI crews, Mountain Rescue teams and even British military special forces units. These challenges helped the duo to hone the design of each and every Elliot Brown watch to perfection. So, if you want a watch to perform, discreetly but efficiently, day in and day out – there is really no better choice. You can wear an Elliot Brown watch on every adventure, from the everyday to the extraordinary. After all, time is precious. Why waste it?

  • Elliot Brown design and re-design every component to make watches that are fundamentally fit-for-purpose, minimising or eliminating typical points of failure such as spring bars breaking, straps snapping, or watches leaking - all potentially catastrophic failures.

    Any watches damaged in service can be repaired quickly and economically at their in-house workshop in Poole and returned to service with the minimum of disruption.

    Not only is their servicing world class, the warranty has no small print. It’s honest, comprehensive, and straightforward. The whole watch is covered for 5 years, not just the movement. The only exclusions are accidental damage, the battery and wear & tear.
