From an initial batch of just 100 pieces, the Montford Rubus is an automatic, hand assembled field watch, designed in Britain by the Montford Watch Company.

Having developed a passion for Africa and wildlife conservation through immersive safari experiences, the company was initially started to help raise funds to support work in this and other conservation areas. The Rubus is specifically designed with a nod towards Tusk’s own branding including a reminder of the challenges faced.


A clean, 40mm, brushed stainless steel, waterproof case complete with mineral glass set into the caseback, effortlessly showcases the 21 jewel, automatic movement. Polished hands are easy to read against the luminous time indices, complimented with a sweeping second hand tipped in red, all set upon an etched, Elephant Grey, steel dial allowing the watch face to catch the light from all angles. Perfect for checking if it’s time for a sundowner!


Dressed with a quick change, soft, vegan leather strap in Khaki Tan with contrasting white stitching, the Rubus is also supplied with a padded woven, recycled ocean-plastic strap in Safari Green with complementary orange stitching to ensure it can be worn well on many occasions, be that in the middle of the bush or when you’re back for the evening meal at camp.
