Case: 316L stainless, matt vapour blasted, bi colour dazzle camouflage PVD, treated with an anti-fingerprint coating that naturally repels mud and grime. Every watch is individually pressure tested to 200m at several points during production
Dial: easy to read at a glance day or night with a military bearing that’s relevant and familiar. Dial surface printed in tri colour SuperLuminova@ high grade luminous paint that glows white, ice blue and pale green in expedition inspired camouflage shapes with hidden Series Defenders. Hour markers are bold black against the luminous dial. Under the 6h marker are the words Freezing Point picked out in ice blue. Next to it at the 32 minute marker is an asterisk frozen star picking out 32 degrees Fahrenheit, freezing point.
Hands: clear differentiation between solid black hours, minutes and seconds hands with minimal chance of confusion. Short stubby ‘sword’ hour hand, long slender parallel minutes hand with pointed tip that reaches precisely to the minute markers. Seconds hand features ‘invisible’ white lollipop counter balance with ice blue tip.
Caseback: Displays the unique number given to every watch, along with the Land Rover Trophy logo, Union Flag and silhouettes of Series Land Rovers, brightly brushed in contrast to the dark matt background. Bolted down using hex bolts creating a perfect compression seal, logo alignment and correct tension for the movement shock absorption system.
Bezel: high grip, uni directional divers bezel case hardened to 1200HV Vickers hardness. Highly resistant to marking and provides an outer layer of protection for the watch. The high grip texture enables the bezel to be turned by gripping the sides or pressing downwards and the fine hobnail pattern ensures the bezel can't be caught on anything, turning it accidentally. Hardened black stainless bezel insert with white bold count down timing indices picked out in SuperLuminova® ice blue lume.
N.B. this bezel is unapologetically fit for purpose. Please be aware it can catch or wear shirt cuffs prematurely.
Crown: easy to use yet highly protected. Deeply recessed, screws down into watch case, triple sealed, hobnail knurling for high grip, 4h position keeps it out of harms way
Crystal: bevelled 2mm toughened sapphire with anti reflective coating applied to the inner surface to minimise glare for perfect visibility in all light conditions. It’s mounted fractionally below the hardened bezel to minimise the chance of the edge becoming chipped, with a matching black sealing ring. To pass QC, every crystal must be capable of withstanding an impact applied 3 times by a 17mm steel ball dropped from 0.5m
Movement: Swiss Ronda calibre 715 with low-battery/end of life indicator. Housed inside a proprietary shock protection system consisting of a steel housing suspended by elastomer shock absorbers inside the outer watch casing and unique to Elliot Brown. Projected battery life 3 years.
Strap: bespoke black soft rubber deployant strap for the perfect combination of comfort, practicality and aesthetic. Features diamond breather holes and rope shaped breather texture inside – inspired by Elliot Brown’s waterside HQ.
Strap fixing: solid steel strap bars that screw directly into the case shoulders, driven by a 5-lobe head so that the driver (included with the watch) can't slip or climb out, ensuring simple and fast strap changes whilst also providing maximum security - no spring-bars to break. All 22mm Elliot Brown straps also fit this watch – matching steel bracelets, leather, webbing etc.
