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.

This watch is beautiful and I get a compliment on it at least once a day. The butterfly clasp takes a bit of getting used to, but it keeps the watch nice and secure. The leather is starting to show some nice age and it is a really beautiful color.
This watch is versatile, works in many outfits, fits well, and looks great!
The watch was more than beautiful my husband loved it, the picture doesn’t do the watch justice.
very satisfied with my purchase
Watch is very nice. Large Slim face makes easy off for winter knit cuffed outer jackets and sweaters. Thanks. Am looking to buy another.
I was worried it might look too large on me but it lives up to its name! Great quality and exactly the classy minimal aesthetic I was looking for
I have to admit, I was surprised (given the price) by how good this watch looks and feels. Industry conditions us to believe one must spend hundreds, if not thousands to obtain a quality watch. I think brathwait is breaking from the crowd and offering solid timepieces for hundreds less.
I got this watch as a gift for my gf, she really loves the great quality and classic design. Shipping took a bit longer than expected as Brathwait had some issues with keeping up with the orders over the holidays.
