CANFORD: Thin Red Line Firefighters edition
CANFORD: Thin Red Line Firefighters edition
Please read all of this page before placing your order.
This special edition Thin Red Line Canford Firefighters watch is a very wearable 44mm, designed to fit the vast majority of wrists. It is built to Elliot Brown's unique high specification including a movement shock protection system and individual pressure testing of every watch at 200m in water. The internal timing bezel is a real pleasure to use and perfect for simple timing duties whilst bold, high performance Superluminova markings ensure high visibility in low light conditions. With easy strap changes thanks to the solid screw in strap bars it's a watch that can dressed up or down for any occasion.
The super compressor case back is a thing of beauty, with deep engraving and selective polishing picking out the cap badge, crossed axes and the words 'first in last out'.
Every watch is made to order which is why we operate a pre-payment basis. The watches are only available to Firefighters and support staff (current or retired) via this restricted access private web page. You may have seen the previous version being worn and enjoyed by colleagues - there are around 500 of those on wrists.
Delivery is expected Sept 2022. It takes 6 months to make a batch including rigorous testing of every watch.
There are four Canford variants with different strap choices:
Black rubber deployant
Black rubber deployant + discounted black canvas with red stitch
Steel bracelet deployant
Steel bracelet deployant + discounted black canvas with red stitch
From every purchase of this special edition Thin Red Line watch and with the FBU's blessing, we are donating £35 to Rock2Recovery mental wellbeing charity who support Firefighters, blue light services and the military. Our previous edition watch raised over £20k for Firefighters charities and with your help we hope to smash this figure. Please share this page with colleagues if you can.
