The Fire Brigades Union was introduced to Elliot Brown watches last year and a plan was hatched to raise money for firefighters’ charities by endorsing a special edition firefighters watch. The specially designed watch is only available to FBU members.
Based on their best-selling 'supercompressor' Swiss quartz Canford model, the firefighter’s watch is officially endorsed by the FBU and includes engraving of a personal message on the case back.
There are four versions, each with its own subtle link to brigade shift patterns with a coloured tip on the seconds hand in blue, green, red or white. It’s one of those ‘if you know, you know’ kind of details.
The hour markers on the dial are extra bold and flooded with SuperLuminova ink that will glow for up to 8 hours after a full ‘charge’ in daylight. They are unique to this special edition.
The case back is beautifully detailed. Stamped, engraved and laser etched with the inscriptions ‘in support of Firefighters’ and ‘first in last out’ above and below two crossed axes.
How are watch sales going to help firefighters?
From the sale of every watch, Elliot Brown have agreed to donate £35 to the FBU’s good causes linked to the lottery fund. As well as supporting these chosen causes, some of the money raised will hopefully be used to support selected firefighters who wish to embark on ambitious challenges.
