The world’s only
transparent watchmaker

By pulling back the curtains on modern watchmaking, we’re aiming to do away with industry short-cuts and cheap solutions. This commitment doesn’t make us the biggest, nor does it make us the fastest growing company, quite the contrary. But we believe that qualities like honesty and altruism are desperately needed these days.

Icon Swiss Quartz

Automatic movement

Powering the automatic is the top grade Miyota Cal. 9015 high-beat movement.

This reliable 24 jewel automatic movement operates at 28,800 bph and features a 42 hour power reserve when fully wound. An automatic movement does not require battery because it is powered by kinetic energy created from the movement of your hand.

Icon Sapphire Glass

Sapphire glass

Sapphire glass is the number one component that luxury watches have in common.

It is scratch resistant and highly durable. Sapphire glass is available in the $4-$15 range. The price is determined by the hardness of the glass. Harder glass is more expensive to cut because the cutting blade is a diamond.

Italian Strap

The components and assembly of our stainless steel mesh straps and Italian leather strap costs $18,5

Top grain leather comes from the smallest and least readily available part of the hide, but it is also the strongest. Our mesh straps are made of 316L stainless steel. Both straps have a quick release function and are adjustable to fit any wrist - one size fits all.

Great watch

Not only is this watch beautiful and stylish, it also keeps great time.

Very handsome watch. The second

Very handsome watch. The second hand's red can look a little neon orange under certain light conditions. I wish it was a deeper red but I still enjoy the watch. Feels premium.

Very nice watch and excellent customer support

I wanted to thank the customer support representative, he did a great job. I purchased the watch during the Black Friday sale and because the large amount of orders the watch I choose was out of stock and I should have waited longer than expected, Since it was a gift for my brother's wedding and I couldn't wait, Brathwait was able to find a perfect solution to solve the issue. I received the watch on time and it's exactly as expected. Great job, thank you!! Davide

Amazing product and service

Beautifully crafted, quality item and a speedy and efficient service from Brathwait. My watch has attracted plenty of attention and it's been met with surprise at the price!

Dustin R. Verified buyer 09/30/2016
So far very satisfied

Thus far I am very satisfied with this watch. I've tried very hard to scrutinize the finish and build quality for some type of production "flaw" that would belie the watch's relative bargain price. I really haven't found anything substantial that detracts from the watch. My only areas of criticism would be that the movement is really quite loud when it winds. It sounds a bit like I've got a marble rolling around on my wrist. Would also like a metal bracelet option for the band. In all, very pleased. Several people commented on my "nice watch" within seconds of seeing it.
