Elliot Brown and Windy City Watch Collector are delighted to launch version 2 of the CANFORD MOUNTAIN RESCUE EDITION and offer it to enthusiasts here in the US.
The dial has a very subtle matt on gloss MREW logo in the bottom half – it’s one of those “if you know, you know” kind of details and it has been fitted it with Elliott Brown’s practical EPDM rubber strap as standard.
As a result of their constant search for functional enhancements, they’ve developed a brand new ‘safety’ crown system for the inner timing bezel to make this model even more suitable for professional use, and also fitted it with a sapphire crystal for enhanced scratch resistance.
Designed in collaboration with Mountain Rescue England and Wales, the Canford Mountain Rescue features a unique caseback with deep-etched special edition Mountain Rescue logo.
For outstanding visibility, extra bold hour batons stand out on the dial, matched to bright white hands filled with green SuperLuminova and a fully luminised seconds hand.
The inner timing bezel now features an oversized 12h triangular marker with an MREW inspired red outline.
To adjust the inner timing bezel, the crown needs to be pulled away from the case and rotated. Once set to the minute hand or in advance of the minute hand for count down timing, it’s simply pressed back into the case to disengage from the bezel.
Also included in the box is one of our durable black nylon webbing straps with brushed 316L stainless steel hardware. The strap bars screw into the case using a pentalobe Torx tool that locates securely into the end of the strap bar – making for easy strap changes.
So you’ve got a classic steel watch on a black rubber strap for the working week, and a hard-as-nails outdoors watch for weekends spent enjoying the countryside and mountains with the added flexibility of changing straps to longer webbing when needed. All the 22mm straps fit this model for personal customization.
The perfect mix of luxury and utility.
A not insubstantial £36 (approx. $46) will be donated to Mountain Rescue England & Wales for each watch sold, helping Mountain Rescue to buy vital equipment.
