Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast episode 263! In today’s show we got to talk about a brand that builds some really bullet-proof watches. Elliot Brown founders Alex and Ian here to tell their story and how they came to start their second watch company.
With a passion for the outdoors, they’ve produced models that function above the clouds and below the waves, and have produced collaborations with the MREW, RNLI, fire departments, the military and Land Rover.

Got into the horological hobby only a few short years ago; but got, as us Scots like to say, “baw deep” pretty quickly. Thanks to buying a lemon of a Rolex he spent hours researching why his watch wasn’t working and along the way gained an interest in what makes them tick. He now runs the Scottish Watches website and keeps cohort Rick in check on the twice weekly Scottish Watches podcast.
