Elliot Brown was founded in 2013 by Ian Elliot and Alex Brown who have a passion for the outdoors. Alex studied Horology whilst Elliot created a hook, loop, and webbing watch strap and founded Animal. They met at a time when Elliot was needing expert help in developing a stainless steel watch. Alex turned down a job with Cartier to join up with Elliot. Their headquarters is in a working boatyard in Poole Harbour in Dorset. Each of their watches has a unique Dorset reference story.
Here we have a 2021 Elliot Brown Holton named after Holton Heath, the site of the former Royal Navy Cordite Factory. A 43mm matt vapour blasted finished stainless steel case. The case curves over your wrist with tapered drilled lugs. A lug to lug length of 52.5mm and a case thickness of 14mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. At 4 o’clock a triple-sealed screw-down crown recessed into the case for protection. The unidirectional bezel has the same treatment applied with a black harden coated dive insert and a satisfying 120 click action. A 2mm thick sapphire crystal AR coated for great viewing angles. The black dial has an outer 24-hour ring with Trapezoid indexes marking the hours. Numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 are all coated in SuperLumiNova. Between the four and five is a date window. Broad sword hands complemented by a lollipop balanced sweeping second hand. Text is precisely applied to the dial. On the reverse a screw-down case back with the brand motif embossed in the center. Inside an Automatic Seiko Cal. NH35 is housed in an Elliot Brown manufactured anti-shock system. The watch comes on an Elliot Brown fitted rubber strap with a signed buckle. The watch comes with its Elliot Brown presentation box and papers.

This is our first Elliot Brown we have stocked and I have to say I am incredibly impressed with the undeniable build quality that the brand is achieving, they are built like a robust tank ready for anything you throw at it. I can see why the brand has developed a following and appears to be heading strongly in that direction amount collectors.
