About the Accurist Brand
The Accurist brand is in fact an English marketing brand. They were started, apparently, by the Loftus family in 1946 to assemble and market watches using Swiss & Japanese components. They started up in Clerkenwell, which is at least the right place for watches in London.
Thank you Michael Wright (UK) for sending me this additional information.
The Chameleon (not from Boy George)
My model acts like a Chameleon. The crystal has no AR coating, that always makes it a bit more difficult if the dials are dark. But it must be the combination of the dark blue changing blue of the dial with the 2-tone case and bracelet which result in a different color appearance of the watch for almost every shot. I have re-shot the watch in March 2006, but finally decided to show you the unaltered pictures (only resized of course). It is really quite an interesting phenomena how this Accurist changes its appearance.
