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.

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

Our Italian leather straps are made from top grain leather.

Top grain leather comes from the smallest and least readily available part of the hide, but it is also the strongest. About 3/5 of the cost is the band material and the rest is due to stainless steel buckles and the rose gold coating that is applied to them.

An impressive watch!

I got to know your website while I was browsing the net for a watch about 8 days or so before Christmas. Then, I came across one of your watches being advertised. I clicked on your website and wow.... I saw all the watches and immediately, I made up my mind to get one of the automatic Swiss watches for Christmas. But there was just one problem - all sold out! So, I made up my mind to get one of automatic minimalist wrist watch. I bought it on the Saturday before Christmas eve and I received the watch on Wednesday - three days before Christmas. What a wonderful service! Not all, I was able to trace the parcel from the USA to London, UK. I wore it for Christmas! Everything is first class. The leather strap is a bit tricky but I have mastered it now. Altogether, excellent, beautiful product and first class customer service. I will keep recommending your company and its products. Congratulations to you all. From a very satisfied customer from the U.K.

A watch for all seasons

The automatic minimalist watch suites more occasions than I originally expected. Initially purchased as a dress watch, I quickly experienced a watch that was formal but acceptable as an everyday. The look is sophisticated and blends with any outfit. As far as the use / mechanics..I have found the Brathwait impressive. The crystal is luxurious and the face is eye-catching. The rose gold holds they eye and offers topics of conversation. Most impressive is the length of time held my the automatic movement. As I don't wear the watch every day, I find it holds time and date notably longer than other automatic watches I have. My only criticism is the tricky buckle. I chalk this up the the quality leather band that will loosen as the years go on. However, Brathwait makes it easy to switch bands so it's of minimal concern. I heartily recommend this timepiece.

Absolutely no reason to have doubts.

I was thinking about a way more expensive watch but the minimalistic design of Brathwait caught my eye. The watch is made with good quality materials. It is crafted with precision and focus on the detail. I can absolutely recommend this one as an intruguing timepiece for a very good price.
