Elliot Brown

Bloxworth | 929-102-R51G

Colour: Black

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

  • So finely executed is the vapour blasted dark gunmetal finish on this ‘102 model that it almost looks ceramic. The precision of the case finishing is so beautifully highlighted with highly detailed ‘pops’ of gloss that lift it to another level. The overall effect is a watch that looks ready for duty but is so easy on the eye and on the wrist.

    The highlights don’t start and end with the case finishing though. The scratch resistant ceramic bezel insert with flush, highly lumed batons and numerals allow clear low 'viz’ timing, whilst perfectly framing the dial and box profile sapphire crystal that gently rises into a shallow dome. It’s the perfect profile to compliment the classic dive title.

    The two layer sandwich dial of this model is discreet with a smooth black central lower layer framed by a subtle chamfer just outside the micro markers. Matt tungsten coloured hands with a warm sand lume colour infill, command just the right amount of attention from the eye, set against the clarity of the ultra bold dial markers. Both glow for up to 8 hours after a good ‘charge’ in daylight for great visibility on all conditions.

    The basket weave texture on the outer surface of the fitted black rubber strap suits this watch so well, sitting flush against the matt case with a subtle border embossed into the rubber to frame the join between the two materials just so. The textured surface is created using elements from the EB logo, which is repeated, then embossed into the soft rubber surface. The rubber strap creation has a story all of its own, with inner breather lines moulded from hand drawn lines and ropes that we see daily in our boat yard HQ. It’s fitted with functional, handsome split deployant buckle with a raised EB shield who’s outer edge is highly polished to match the case highlights. Take a look at the Instruction tab for how to custom fit your strap to you.

    The basket weave continues as the primary background detail on the compressor case back, framing the raised and polished shield with a subtle matt texture. If you haven’t handled one of our watches, the case back is perfectly indicative of the detail we go to in everything we do; resolved, well considered, highly functional and virtually never seen by anyone other than you, but you’ll know.

    Fitted with an optional matching B09 bracelet, this watch is simply stunning or dress it down with a heritage webbing strap for a more functional, military vibe. All strap changes on our 22mm strap ranges are a cinch thanks to the quick-change unbreakable strap bars.

    As with our other watch collections, 100% of our watches must pass a series of stringent tests including a 200m pressure test in water before they are deemed fit for use. We also smash a number of watches from every batch with a 3kg stainless steel pendulum mallet to ensure the movement shock protection system is fully operational. That’s an impact force of circa 500G in case you were wondering. This level of testing is by no means mandatory but it does mean you can have complete confidence, backed up by a no nonsense 5 year warranty.

  • 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.
