The Elliot Brown Bloxworth Collection
The Bloxworth collection is known for its classic ‘tech-diver’ watches. They are each designed to provide more function to the wearer. The watches in this collection have distinctive features that identify them as Bloxworth timepieces. Each watch in the collection has a unidirectional diver’s bezel with deep castellations. This texture on the bezel is uniquely designed for the Bloxworth models and aids with grip in challenging conditions. Additionally, the crown and push-buttons of the watches in this collection are knurled. This ensures that they can be used easily in all conditions.
The watches each have a shock absorbent housing to contain the movement. This protects the delicate workings of the watch from any knocks and bumps it may encounter with rigorous wear. To aid with challenging conditions, each watch has a good level of water resistant. To ensure that the water resistance rating is accurate, each timepiece is individually pressure tested to 150 metres twice during the construction of the watch. Once they have been built, the watch is placed in a water filled pressure vessel that is turned to 200 metres. This ensures that each model has been thoroughly tested.
The New Bloxworth Models
The team at Elliot Brown have perfected every detail of the latest models in the Bloxworth collection. The brand wanted to create a three hand diver’s watch that took all of the features of the existing Bloxworth watches and adapted them into a sleek, yet incredibly functional timepiece. The watches all have a distinct box crystal to protect the dial. This unusual shape provides a traditional and classic feel to this otherwise modern watch. The timepieces are each built with a ceramic insert bezel in a shade to complement the design of the watch. Ceramic is a very desirable material in watch making due to its hard wearing nature and luxurious finish.
These watches are each designed with a sandwich dial that is adorned with a basket weave style design. This unique texture on the dial makes these timepieces stand out from the crowd. Each all new Elliot Brown Bloxworth watch has its own unique sense of character with different combinations of materials and colours.
This new Bloxworth model features a black sandwich dial with the recognisable basket weave texture on the central section. The watch features stainless steel hour, minute and second hands with luminous baton and Arabic indices. The dial is framed by a black ceramic bezel to provide the watch with a luxurious finish. The Swiss Made quartz movement that powers the watch is placed within a shock absorbent housing. This ensures that it is able to withstand knocks and bumps. A stainless steel case surrounds the dial. The case is made from marine grade stainless steel to complement the water resistance rating of up to 200 metres. This timepiece is secured on the wrist using a classic and durable stainless steel bracelet.
This watch features an all-black design for an elegant look for all occasions. This black colour scheme makes this watch the perfect companion, for the office, a formal occasion, or outdoor adventuring. The black dial features the woven design that is a distinguishing feature of the collection. A vapour blasted dark gunmetal case frames the dial and houses the quartz movement that powers the watch. Domed ‘box’ anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial and ensures that it can be read in bright light conditions. The hands on this watch are black to fit in with the dark colour palette. A black non-scratch ceramic unidirectional bezel surrounds the dial to provide the watch with an extra functionality. The watch is finished with a bespoke Tropic style divers rubber strap that secures using a double folding deployant buckle.
With an all-black colour scheme and a black plated stainless steel bracelet, this is the perfect all-rounder timepiece. The grey dual layer dial exhibits the iconic basket weave texture with bold hour markers and hour, minute and second hands. A black ceramic bezel frames the dial to ensure for durability in this long lasting timepiece. The watch is powered by a Swiss Made quartz movement that is housed in a shock absorbing casing.
The case of the watch is made from black plated stainless steel to perfectly match the dark tone of the bracelet. A metal bracelet is a classic finish on any watch and the dark plating on this model gives the watch an elegant, modern edge. The crown of this watch is positioned at 4o’clock on the case to ensure that it does not dig in to the back of the hand. The Bloxworth watches are built for practicality and comfort, and this model is no exception.
