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.

Icon Strap

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

This is a great watch. You won't be disappointed. I've owned a Seiko stainless steel quartz for about 8 years, and I think this Brathwait is more elegant.

Sleek and classy

The automatic minimalist watch is killer. The face is simple but bold, the black leather band looks great against the stainless steel (feeling both casual and formal), and the weight feels good. I like the subtlety of the domed face, especially. Looking forward to pairing this with other bands in the future! Loving the idea that I'll never need to replace a watch battery.

Such a clean design

My first venture into Brathwait was the classic slim. I was attracted to the clean design, sharp hands and just overall minimalist appearance. Whether on a nato strap or leather band, the watch is elegant and is one of my favorites. it is no doubt then that I had to try the automatic. I must say I have not been dissapointed. The same clean design carries through and I especially like the engraved hour hands - provides an especially clean look. Both my brathwaits can be dressed up or down as I like by changing the straps with the quick release pins making the process effortless. All in all I am very very pleased with my purchases and look forward to getting the minimalist luminous Swiss automatic!

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.
