About Accurist

Accurist was founded in 1946 in London by Asher and Rebeca Loftus. They made watches that consisted entirely of Swiss components, which guaranteed consistent high-quality, and placed the company higher on the competitive watch market. The Accurist brand truly blossomed at around 1965 with their ‘Old England’ watch line, which aimed to introduce and promote the idea that watches could be a fashion accessory, and not merely a ‘once in a lifetime’ purchase. This movement was popularised by the likes of Twiggy and The Beatles, causing the brightly coloured and out-there designs of this new watch style to become a part of the London fashion at the time. The 1970’s was also a successful decade for Accurist, with the popularisation of quartz movements and digital watches, technologies that were often represented by the Accurist brand in the media – their digital quartz watch was chosen as the official watch for the Concorde aircraft pilots.

Up until the early 2000’s, Accurist was a highly popular and well-known brand, still creating good quality watches to this day. However, their heyday was undeniable from the 60’s through to the 80’s, and their classical, stylish watches from that period can still widely be found on the markets.
