Sometimes the problem with well crafted, high quality items is that while they look great they can be very high maintenance, at least for accident prone people like me. Wouldn’t it be great if you could be more cavalier with a high end piece of kit without any regrets?

Water resistant to 200m and impressively shock resistant (to ISO2281, see this video for a demonstration), an Elliot Brown watch is designed to cope with anything an adrenaline junkie, or even a clumsy individual, can throw at it and remain unruffled by the whole experience. It’s pretty simple to change the straps which include ballistic nylon webbing, canvas, solid steel bracelet and oiled leather with a deployant buckle so it doesn’t go flying off your wrist as soon as you undo it.

Available online and at selected retailers from £325.
