Elliot Brown Tyneham Automatic

British watch brand Elliot Brown announces its latest model: TYNEHAM. This classic dress watch, which is also robust in construction in order to survive harsh conditions, follows the same design aesthetics of brand’s Canford timepiece.
Its 41mm stainless steel case, available in brushed, fine brushed or gunmetal 15μm PVD matte finishes, houses Japanese Miyota 9130 automatic with a 42hr power reserve. As well as Miyota’s shock proofing system, the Tyneham also boasts a bespoke 360°movement shield system to protect the movement from the effects of harsh shocks from any direction.
All Tyneham models feature a scratch resistant case-hardened steel bezel designed just proud of the1.8mm sapphire crystal to protect it. The bezel boasts Vickers hardness of 1200; over six times harder than standard 316L stainless.
Its elegant dial, available in matte black, grey, silver, white, boasts matching hour markers and hands. For example, the model having matte black anti-reflective dial features white numerals and indices with matching date window at 5h and distinctive orange tipped seconds hand. A power reserve indicator dial at 1H reminds the wearer about the energy left with the self winding movement that beats inside the timepiece.
The rear side of each timepiece is secured with solid steel case back. Limited and numbered collections of each model are available with a sapphire exhibition back – each one numbered out of 500.
In non-limited edition versions, steel case backs feature hand-drawn contours from Tyneham Cap on the Dorset coast, with reverse-etched lettering typical of Elliot Brown’s attention to detail.
Each Tyneham is tested individually for a water resistance up to 300m. The collection offers leather and rubber strap options with heavy-duty stainless “EB” wide tongue buckle or deployant clasp. Single sided solid strap bars make changing straps easy.
Retail price of Tyneham is £795.00 for non limited edition models featuring stainless steel caseback and £845.00 for limited edition timepieces featuring sapphire crystal caseback.
