The world’s only
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.
Our Swiss made Ronda movement is the same movement that is used in $500+ quartz watches.
An inexpensive quartz movement costs below $2. A Swiss made high precision movement with shock resistance and extra long battery life of up to 40 months costs $10.
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.
The components of our Italian leather and nylon straps costs about $5 for nylon and $18,5 for 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.
Stainless steel case
Water resistant to 100 meters /10 bar (328 feet).
Steel cases are made up of a steel quality typically in the range of 304 to 916. The number does not necessarily reflect the product’s quality or price, but identifies the mixture of minerals. A top quality stainless steel case of this size costs $9,70 to produce.
The coating of our rose gold case is a mixture of pure gold and copper.
The plating on steel cases are measured in the thickness of uM, one uM is 1/1000 of a 1 mm. Our high grade electro enhanced PVD plating lasts basically forever.
The dial is made up of a thin metal plate with a light beige coating.
The components to any given dial costs about $2.70. The remaining cost is due to the precision needed to assemble the parts. This process requires specialised and expensive equipment.

I fell in love with the well-rounded and elite style of the classic slim wrist watch. I can wear it both daily and particularly. I feel so grateful and special to choose Brathwait, thank you for this vintage style.
Absolutely top line product
I discovered Barthwait while looking for a classic watch for my husband. The quality is impeccable, and my husband loves everything about it! Thank you, Brathwait!
my friend and I both had trouble figuring out how to put it on. had to look at a you tube video. but I love the watch and many compliments. would buy another
I searched a long time to find a simple, elegant, quality watch at a value price. I really like the sapphire crystal and the leather strap with a clasp. The strap is very stiff out of the box, but I assume it will form to my wrist over time. The only negative comment I have is that the second hand does not align with the second markers on the face. I was hoping it would but know this is a lot to ask for a watch at this price.
Extremely high quality, well worth the price!!!!
To be honest, I was afraid of buying a watch without seeing it up close. So first I did lots of research and then after receiving it, I realized everything was true. My classic slim fit is a real masterpiece, which I believe so as other Brathwait's products. the design and quality are extremely satisfying and I will keep up with the brand.( worth every penny)
This watch is a classic. It looks excellent in a business suit as well as when you're in casual wear. It stands out in a crowd, and I received many compliments. Unfortunately, I had to return my watch, not because I didn't like it, but because I have very small wrist and I ordered the 36mm which fit my wrist perfectly. However, the only problem is that the band was 16mm that made the watch appear too feminine. If this Braithwait could make the 36mm with an 18mm watch band, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
