Let’s get dressed up!!! That is something I do not say often. These days I do not have to get dressed up that often, but I can say that putting on the Erroyl Heritage 300 had me looking at the girlfriend and saying lets get dressed up and go for a night on the town. Maybe you get dressed up more often, whether for work or play, and a nice affordable dress watch will fit right into your rotation. Or, you are more like me, and it is an occasional thing. Either way, a nice dress watch really completes the ensemble, so to speak.
Erroyl is a new company out of Australia, and they started off with a pre order earlier this year.I do not know off hand what the preorder price was or if there was an incentive, but I do know that the Heritage Royal 300 I am reviewing is a great value at about $302, which includes international shipping. Features such as a beautiful engraved dial, sapphire crystal, stainless case and solid jubilee bracelet and a Miyota 9015 all come together to create a very nice piece.
Of course, as with anything, I found some issues, but nothing major. Please take a look at my video review below for my initial comments.

When it comes to the name of the company, Erroyl, it is pronounced Errol, as in Errol Flynn. Interesting name for a watch brand, and here is info from the owner, Wes Knight on how it came about: “The origin of the name Errol came from the title Earl from the Anglo-Saxon period when Robin Hood (starring Errol Flynn in the late 30s version) was set. Out of the title Earl came two different words/names that evolved namely Errol/Erroyl. In choosing our name we wanted to hark back to a time of greater respect, chivalry and refinement. So the parallels between this era and the name sort of merged together with us drawing on this in our branding”. Erroyl has produced a nice classic 40mm dress watch, with some quality upgrades, especially at this price, so the name and inspiration seems fitting.
