Land Rover Classic, in partnership with Elliot Brown Watches, has released the limited edition Trophy Expedition watch. Inspired by the new Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II, the new timepiece is based on Elliot Brown’s best-selling Holton Professional model, favoured by adventurers and emergency services. It’s limited to 1,000 pieces.
This rugged timepiece is available in addition to the unique Competitor’s Edition timepiece reserved exclusively for customers of the vehicle.
Created alongside the Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II, the timepiece features elements inspired by the limited run of 25 vehicles, including the unique camouflage of each car.
The case is made from 316L marine grade stainless steel, and has a matt vapour blasted surface with 0.8 Micron PVD 1200HV hardened ‘dazzle camo’ coating.

As with the limited run of vehicles, each watch also features hidden silhouettes of Defender series Land Rovers both old and new. These are visible in the dark and by day via a UV torch, supplied with each timepiece.
Dial highlights include black hands and a white lollipop counterbalance on the blue-tipped second hand. At the base of the dial are the words ‘Freezing Point’ along with a frozen star at the 32 seconds position, printed in pale ice blue.
A 120 click uni-directional divers bezel encircles the 2mm sapphire crystal. Every watch is pressure tested three times, including in water at 200m.
Three colours of SuperLuminova illuminate at night to glow white, ice blue and pale green.
The movement is a Swiss Ronda calibre 715, with a low battery indicator secured in an internal ‘floating’ shock absorption housing.
The case displays the unique number given to every watch, along with the Land Rover Trophy logo and detailing. It ships with Elliot Brown’s bespoke soft rubber deployant strap.
The announcement of the Elliot Brown Trophy Expedition watch coincides with Land Rover Classic’s reveal of the Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II. Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 petrol powertrain, producing 405PS and 515Nm of torque, the limited-edition features an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
The 90, 110 and 110 Double Cab Defender Works V8 Trophy II vehicles are now available direct from Land Rover Classic, with prices starting from £225,000 (for a 90 in the UK).
The Elliot Brown Land Rover Trophy Expedition watch is available here, priced at £595.
