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 of good quality costs below $2. An excellent quartz movement with shock resistance and extra long battery life of up to 40 months costs $10.
Italian nylon straps cost $5.8
About 2/5 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.
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.
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. A plating of 0.6 uM would last for about 6 months, a plating of 1 uM would last for 2 years and our plating of 6 uM 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.
Customs, fulfillment & shipping, storage, product box, transaction fees (VISA etc) and other bank related expenses.
In addition to materials, every order has non-material related expenses such as customs, fulfillment & shipping, storage, product box, transaction fees (VISA etc) and other bank related expenses in the amount of $25 - $30 per order.

Excellent quality and service
Absolutely stunning watch! Love it (honestly). The best quartz watch for the price, and the quality really shines at all levels: the sleek case, the sapphire crystal, the baton hour markers, the subtle sheen on the dial, and the red second hand. It's minimal yet luxurious; modern yet classic; and simple yet sophisticated. I keep looking at my Brathwait. I've never been one to show off, but this watch is a head turner. Well done!
The watch design is great and it works without a hitch. The customer service was also prompt in replying and very helpful. Will definitely purchase again
Beautifully made. Very light and comfy to wear. Already purchased more straps to change up the look.
Really enjoying my watch. Gotten some nice compliments on it.
Haven't taken my watch off since it arrived. Love the versatility it provides and have gotten compliments in casual settings as well as in the office paired with a nice suit. The quality is on par with watches that cost far more. Have already recommended to several friends and I look forward to grabbing a few additional bands to add even more variety to my new look. Well done Brathwait!
I have been wearing very chunky watches in the last few years. Thought I would change things up with this simple and beautiful piece from Braithwait. very happy , looks great .
