Accurist
Partner of the race since 2023

Accurist have been a part of British culture marking key moments in time for the last 70+ years. Founded in Clerkenwell, London – the heart of British watchmaking – in 1946, Accurist have been owned, run, and designed in the UK ever since.

The Beatles have worn Accurist watches, the England men’s football team have previously partnered with Accurist, and the countdown to the Millennium was sponsored by Accurist. Many will know the brand from the Speaking Clock: “the time sponsored by Accurist” line ran from 1986 to 2008 and was heard over three billion times.

In 2021 Accurist started the journey of fully revitalising the brand. Eventually, the decision was made to discontinue all previous watches and introduce seven new collections, all of which were inspired by past watches. To ensure consistent high-quality materials and finish, Accurist use materials commonly found in Swiss brands at a more accessible price point.

To commemorate the partnership with the Tour of Britain, Accurist have created a limited edition gift set. This is a bespoke bracelet watch packaged with an additional leather strap.

There are 100 sets being produced, all of which will be numbered. Designed specifically by their in-house design team in the UK, the watch celebrates the Tour of Britain and cycling as a sport.
