Tyneham

View / Buy

A very wearable automatic equipped with exquisitely considered details. Everything you need and nothing you don’t packed into a 41mm case so proportionally balanced that it demands a second glance.

A watch inspired by one of our favourite UK coastal retreats and built to thrive in harsh conditions. Competence is delivered in many guises and there’s something incredibly satisfying in knowing you’re wearing an object of such detail but ultimately capable.

Each Tyneham comes in two styles. A solid steel back precision engraved with hand drawn contours from Tyneham Cap on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast or a limited edition numbered display back revealing the movement and custom rotor through a sapphire window (denoted by a D for display in its model code).

The Miyota 9130 Japanese automatic is a beautiful piece of engineering chosen for reliability, but as it's inherently more delicate than it’s quartz cousins, we built a two-stage shock absorption system to protect it. The first line of defence is a stainless steel movement cage, surrounded by our proprietary shock absorber allowing the whole assembly to float inside the outer case. Secondary shock resistance comes in the form of the balance staff shock protection system built into the movement. It means that although it’s an auto the Tyneham will take the kind of punishment Elliot Brown is renowned for. The Miyota 9130 also hacks and is hand-windable.

A recessed 2mm sapphire crystal is protected by a perfectly proportioned stainless steel outer bezel. That would normally be the end of the story but not for us. Every Tyneham bezel is case-hardened so it’ll remain largely scratch free for years as it’s six times harder than marine grade stainless.

The crown is ergonomically positioned away from the wrist and neatly recessed into the case for increased durability. We've knurled it with a parallel hobnail design for optimal grip and finished each one to match the case. Triple seals ensure it remains fully sealed in all positions.

At 1h on the dial, there’s a discreet 40h power reserve indicating the state of the mainspring winding and each dial has been carefully paired with precision printing or raised metallic indices to create 5 completely different stories that make the collection.

There are two styles of hands, both inspired by traditionally bold instrumentation. Each style complimenting the dial and colour palette and a first for Elliot Brown is the white SuperLuminova detailing that glows cool blue.

Each and every watch has passed our unforgiving pressure test in water at 300m. It’s just one of the inventive and well publicised tests we carry out to make sure that our watches are highly capable and as reliable as our exacting standards require for us to put our names on them.

A refinement of the solid strap attachment bars means strap changes are simply managed with a single screwdriver. The Tyneham strap lineup includes a smart soft grey woolen felt edition – incredibly stylish whilst remarkably durable. All other Elliot Brown straps fit the Tyneham which means there are literally 100’s of combinations for that special custom look.
