Land Rover Classic has continued its partnership with Elliot Brown Watches - the official timekeeper of the Land Rover Trophy competition - with the release of 1,000 new Trophy Expedition timepieces. The watch priced at 595 GBP, is inspired by the New Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II, which pays homage to seven decades of global Land Rover exploration and adventure.

Based on Elliot Brown's best-selling Holton Professional model, each of the 1,000 exclusive timepieces shares a number of features influenced by the iconic 4x4, such as its unique camouflage design and glowing silhouettes of Land Rovers throughout its expedition history. It 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 intricate detailing, with elements inspired by the limited run of 25 vehicles - including the unique camouflage of each car, the design featuring outlines of 23 locations that have played a part in Land Rover's illustrious off-roading and exploration adventures over more than 70 years.

As with the limited run of vehicles, each watch also features hidden silhouettes of Defender series Land Rovers both old and new. On the watch, these are visible in the dark and by day via a UV torch that is supplied with each timepiece. The camouflage design extends to the watch dial with three colors of high-grade SuperLuminova® that illuminate at night to glow white, ice blue, and pale green.

Unique dial highlights include black hands and a white lollipop counterbalance on the ice blue-tipped second hand. At the base of the dial under the 6h baton are the words "Freezing Point" along with a frozen star at the 32 seconds position printed in pale ice blue. The case displays the unique number given to every watch, along with the Land Rover Trophy logo, Union Flag, and silhouettes of Series Land Rovers, brightly brushed in contrast to the dark matt background.

Finishing the watch is Elliot Brown's bespoke soft rubber deployment strap for the perfect combination of comfort, practicality, and aesthetics. The perfect complement to the attention to detail lavished on each individual Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II built at Land Rover Classic Works.

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 Land Rover's 5.0-liter V8 petrol powertrain, producing 405 PS and 515 Nm of torque, the limited edition features an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Each model undergoes a comprehensive build with uprated suspension, steering enhancements, and uprated brakes.

As well as the opportunity to purchase a unique collectible vehicle, customers are invited to take part in the second exclusive three-day Land Rover Trophy competition, of which Elliot Brown will be the official timekeeper.

The 90, 110, and 110 Double Cab Defender Works V8 Trophy II vehicles are now available to purchase directly from Land Rover Classic, with prices starting from 225,000 GBP for a 90 in the UK. For those looking to enhance their own Defender with some of the Classic Works V8 Trophy II aesthetic, Land Rover Classic will be offering Trophy influenced Genuine Accessories to be announced later in 2022.
