Accurist From their beginning in 1946 Accurist watches have been about precision and lasting value. They guaranteed quality and soon became a brand representing the British lifestyle. Understanding that classic design and fashion can represent one brand, Accurist watches developed the “Old England” look as well as the big, brightly coloured watches that became the symbol of the swinging 60’s along with miniskirts and the Beatles.

Not only in fashion but in quality too it was the first watch company to promote the 21 jewel lever-movement and in the ’70’s changed from LED technology to LCD to become the watch chosen as the official watch for the pilots of the Concorde. Through brand awareness the Accurist became associated with “Sunday Night at the London Palladium” and later John Cleese in award winning advertising that established Accurist as the top British timepiece. In 1993 they provided the Royal Observatory at Greenwich with an Atomic Clock and became associated with the most accurate time in the world. Today, with British Real Time.com Accurist is again the leader in the field and understands that people focus more on what the do with their time rather than being a slave to it.

Accurist watches always have a British classic style as well as a trendy fashionable design that is ahead of it’s time. The latest men’s watches include the MB1300. It has a black face with Swarovski crystals around it, three dials for accuracy to the 10th of a second plus day and date and is water resistant to 100M. The stainless steel and black ceramic band is very sophisticated. There is a wide variety of sports and dress watches including the MB808B with gold tone bracelet and elegant clear black face with a tiny date window and the same style in stainless steel. The MB819B is a stainless steel chronograph with layered dials. A very well designed and attractive watch for casual as well as dress occasions that comes with a racy yellow or aqua blue highlights.

For ladies there is a whole section of watches that combine the precision of an Accurist with the look of jewellery. LB1292 gold tone with Swarovski crystals is a semi bangle watch and also comes in sliver tone. There is a rectangular bezel LB1332P with Swarovski crystals and a mother of pearl dial in both silver and gold tone. LB1643BP is a very elegant sports watch with Swarovski crystals as well as a black mother of pearl dial and three dials with day, date and 24 hour time. This stainless steel watch is water resistant up to 100 M and has the same 3 year manufacturer’s guarantee that all Accurist watches have.

Beautiful watch, got this for my 21st yesterday. Had some links taken out and its perfect. This watch has a small face and suits slimmer wrists. It has a white face with rose gold hands and is very easy to read. The chronograph function works well and is a nice feature, though really its just for cosmetic value rather than function, but it rounds off the overall design. The clasp on the strap is really well made and feels secure on your wrist. Only worn this watch a few times but it already feels like an extention of my arm. Also as a side note, its really quiet! You cant hear any ticking at all, which is handy if it keeps you up at night!

Mens Accurist GMT Chronograph Watch GMT322B
Reviewed on 3rd April 2017

I would offer this watch 8/10 overall. This Watch is a very interesting piece. Only 2000 of each type of the GMT commemoration pieces are available. The strap of the watch is very nice, there is a fancy clasp system which takes some setting up, and seems relatively flimsy, however it works for now and straps are replaceable so not the end of the world, 7/10 here. The watch itself is very impressive, grand complication is no understatement. Setting up is not too difficult, expect to spend half an hour on it, many of the functions will need setting twice, but the instructions are clear, and all the buttons operate nicely except the moon phase setup button which requires a small pin/needle however this is something that does not require doing often so not really a fault. The normal buttons do have some play in them, and this is a shame as in all other respects the watch does a good job of being a high quality item. The other minor grievances are that the chime is an electronic speaker, but this is a very nice tone, and can be set separately to the time displayed on the face, allowing the watch to tell the time in 2 time zones, a nifty feature that makes this gimmic quite useful! However this function cannot be used as an alarm, despite implying on the website that it can be. The watch has another small annoyance in that the hand one would suspect to display seconds does not, it only displays seconds for the chronograph the second hand for the actual time is displayed in the far right dial! This is just a personal preference however. If you want a complicated watch I would definitely recommend this one, for the price and features it is unbeatable, it is a shame that the buttons are a little on the poor side but this is a 200 pound watch, not a 2000 pound watch. It gives an impression of a very nice watch, and in terms of looks I would buy it over many many more expensive rivals. Its no Patek Philippe by any means but then its not anything like the price! The Sapphire glass is a comforting feature knowing your purchase wont get scratched in the first week is always a bonus! Due to the small imperfections this watch cannot get a full 10/10 but I would happily give it 8/10, and with a nicer strap would happily give 9/10, it is nothing short of a miracle Accurist have created this timepiece at this price!

I love my watch, it is an excellent fit and a good size. The watch looks more expensive than it was because of its gold coloured bracelet and pearl effect face.
