Elliot Brown's Mountain Rescue Special Edition Watch - Back In Stock

Written by 

British watch brand Elliot Brown has teamed up with Mountain Rescue England & Wales to launch a special edition watch to raise much-needed funds for this voluntary organisation that provides an essential, life saving service.

The limited edition Mountain Rescue watch (£360) is based on Elliot Brown’s durable Canford collection.  A not insubstantial £36 will be donated to Mountain Rescue for each watch sold and members interested in purchasing will receive a significant discount.  Funds raised from this initiative will help Mountain Rescue to buy vital equipment.

Each watch will come with two straps – full grain black oiled leather with brushed deployant clasp and black ‘military inspired’ custom webbing with brushed stainless D-loops to compliment the brushed watch case.  Two screwdrivers are included, enabling the wearer to change straps depending on the occasion.

This shock and water resistant model has a wealth of subtle detailing, including an internal rotating bezel for timing duties.  The Swiss movements are encased in a floating steel housing, suspended by special shock absorbing elastomers, to help reduce the effects of harsh vibration and knocks.  Effective resistance to water and dust is achieved courtesy of a unique triple sealing system with every model tested in water at 200m.  The case back is beautifully engraved with the Mountain Rescue logo and Special Edition wording.

Mountain Rescue England & Wales National Fundraising Officer, Neil Hayter, said, 'We're delighted to be working with Elliot Brown in the development of this exclusive mountain rescue-inspired watch.  We recommend that anyone venturing into the hills and mountains carries a reliable watch as an essential piece of kit.  This design fits the bill perfectly, whilst also enhancing our mountain rescue brand with a beautiful piece of design. We're excited to see the finished product and look forward to many years of successful collaboration.’

Ian Elliot, Co-founder of Elliot Brown said, ‘It’s an honour to be able to contribute towards the selfless, volunteers who endure the worst of conditions to save the lives of others.’

The results of an independent survey, undertaken recently by Strong Roots Outdoors, revealed that just over half of the 7082 outdoor enthusiasts surveyed said they use their watch as a timepiece only, preferring a traditional watch rather than a smart watch.   Precise time keeping, dependability and durability are at the heart of Elliot Brown’s collection.

We will have a full review of the Canford and the Bloxwoth models on My Outdoors very soon.

The Mountain Rescue Special Edition watch will be available in selected branches of Snow and Rock, online and all authorised Elliot Brown Stockists. A full list of stockists can be found at:

Davy Wright

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District
