Introducing Accurist

Accurist is a relative newcomer in the word of precision time pieces. Considering that a good many watchmakers’ beginnings date back to the 1800s, this company could be considered a newcomer in the terms of classical watch making. After all, the company’s origins date back to a very recent 1946, when Asher and Rebecca Loftus turned their property on London’s St. John Street into Ground Zero for the creation of a new line of watches that combined value with unrivalled quality.

Knowing that Swiss watches are the most reliable time pieces in the world, the founders of Accurist chose to only use Swiss watch making components in the manufacture of their products. Improving on a concept that other manufacturers had not dared to challenge, the company focused on highlighting its watches’ 21 Jewel lever movements – a step that was later copied by a wide array of competitors.

What sets Accurist apart from other watch makers is its aggressive foray into the younger consumer demographic. Once again drawing heavily on tradition but improving upon it for the modern age, the watchmakers appeal to progressive professionals and younger first-time watch buyers – consumers who are routinely underserved by the established competition.

Bridging the gap between high-end – and frequently prohibitively priced – once in a lifetime purchase watches and the much cheaper and far less accurate throw-away pieces, Accurist offers the precision of the former while rivaling the price of the latter. It relied on none other than perennial funnyman and British humor icon John Cleese to introduce the hip consumer to "Accur-ankle, Accu-wrist!"

Consumers who are ready to wear the Accurist brand that graced the wrists of the Beatles, Twiggy and Princess Anne will do well to check out the gents’ and ladies’ selections. Ever on the cutting edge of style, fashion and the up-and-coming generation’s craving for look and feel, the watches continuously change in design, material use and color choices.

Offering a nod to the current trend of unisex design, Accurist offers stainless steel bracelet designs intertwined with ceramic links. The traditionally-minded gent enjoys rose gold tones and a brown leather strap while the more avant-garde wearer will doubtlessly look to the stainless steel bracelet watch with layered dials.

Ladies have the option of reveling in old-world charm with a stylish gold tone semi-bangle wrist watch or show off a deep tan with a Swarovski crystals-studded silver bracelet with Mother of Pearl dial. Athletic females find the stainless steel unisex bracelet, multiple dials and combination of Swarovski crystals to be useful yet uniquely feminine at the same time.

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

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.
