Canford

View / Buy

The Canford is quietly handsome, for those who don't want their watch to shout too loudly. It has the elegance of a classic pilot's watch but with broader shoulders. It's the sort of watch you need never take off, no matter how tough the conditions or how smart the suit.

Available in eighteen styles and three case finishes including black, bead-blasted gun-metal, or brushed and polished stainless steel. Interchangeable strapping options include ballistic nylon webbing, solid steel bracelet, and oiled leather. All but the ballistic nylon straps are fitted with positive-locking deployant clasps with luminised engraving.

The Canford's Swiss-made movement has a three-year battery life and is secured inside a custom shock-absorbing steel movement housing that's unique to Elliot Brown. The 44mm case is machined from solid 316L marine grade stainless steel that's pressure tested to 150m twice during construction, then placed in a water-filled pressure vessel at 200m. It's fitted with a domed and hardened anti-reflective mineral crystal that delivers clear vision in all conditions.

The dial, hands and bezel all have long-lasting Superluminova detailing that provides outstanding legibility in any conditions, night or day. The internal rotating bezel is damped for a silent, glass-smooth action.

Both crowns have triple seals and aggressive knurling for maximum grip in the worst conditions, and smooth radiused edges so they won't wreck the cuff of your favourite shirt or wetsuit. The caseback is bolted down, not threaded, because it's the best way of precisely orientating the shock-absorbing movement housing inside the case.

Included with every watch is a screwdriver to adjust the bracelet. Bracelets are constructed from 316L stainless steel with solid screw-in link pins for maximum strength and easy adjustment. The heavy-duty clasp has micro-adjustment to fine-tune the fit or extend quickly and elegantly for use over a wetsuit.
