What do you guys now about a brand called Brathwait (Automatic Swiss movement)?
Not expensive ($600 or so) and really quite a nice looking minimalist type face.
Never heard of the brand.
They are quite good looking. I tend towards the simple and uncomplicated faces. I thought for the price it would be a nice addition...They use a Swiss caliber SW 260 movement.
The dail is the first impression for sure. Much more to a watch than its engine, though its engine is clearly important.
Are you a NOMOS fan? They are clearly influenced by the Bauhaus school.
I don't know too much about Nomos...but they are attractive and I do like that style.
They are making their own movements now.
As a huge fan of the Bauhaus school overall and their philosophy that I heed to in both design and art, the NOMOS watches leave me lacking for some reason. Odd.
Ok I can see that. For some reason if you like that style you should like them more. Seems to be an element missing. In looking at them...I did not have a strong desire to purchase.
For my taste...I completely like what IWC does. Although, some of the watches are getting really big.
