History of Accurist Watches
Asher and Rebecca Loftus established Accurist in 1946 working from premises in London’s Clerkenwell district, with the intention of creating a brand name of lasting value.
Fresh from the idea that a watch was a “once in a lifetime” purchase, Accurist set out to change this by introducing fashion into watches. Richard Loftus, created a range of watches that was to revolutionise the watch market worldwide. Soon Accurist’s Old England watches were seen on the wrists of the famous and fashionable, The Beatles and Twiggy were amongst the millions worldwide who wore the large brightly coloured watches that became synonymous with the mini skirt, Carnaby Street and London of the 60s.
In 1968 a Swiss office, Accurist S.A was opened in La Chaux de Fonds, the heart of the Swiss watch making industry, to co-ordinate the manufacturing and sourcing for the company. During the 70s, Accurist introduced digital quartz movement and as technology developed from LED to LCD it was Accurist’s digital watch which was chosen as the official watch for pilots of the newly launched Concorde aircraft.
In 1983 after 2 years of careful research and planning, Andrew Loftus applying all the principles on which his parents had established the business, switched the manufacturing base from Switzerland to Japan and in the following 3 years, Accurist’s UK business increased by over 500% Flushed with the success of the new collection Accurist achieved a major marketing breakthrough by being appointed as the first ever, official sponsor of British Telecom’s speaking clock
