Renowned as a premium brand for leather goods and accessories of superior leather, timeless appeal and uncompromising craftsmanship, it is only natural that Braun Büffel expands itself as a lifestyle brand with the launch of its Made In Germany timepieces in 2014 of equal pristine quality as its other products.
This year, just in time for Father’s Day, Braun Büffel’s timepiece collection continues to grow with six new models comprising of four movements of German precision: MYOTA 8257, MYOTA 1513, MYOTA 65A2 and Swiss Ronda 7004.P. Upon the caseback of each timepiece boasts the “Made in Germany” seal, recognised worldwide as a seal of quality excellence, awarded onto to watch manufacturers that comply with the stringent quality standards set by the Federal Association for Jewellery and Watches.
The BB1009 is a modern take of the classic watch, with distinctive aesthetic traits that make it one of the most coveted timepieces available. The supple and comfortable stainless steel link bracelet of steel and rose gold materials holds the watch in place upon the wrist, whereas the grey sunray, white sunray or white enamel dials provide optimum legibility. A 21-jewel automatic MYOTA movement ticks inside the skeleton caseback, working the mechanics of the hour and minute hands of complementing colours, alongside the 24-hour sub-dial and small seconds sub-dial.
On the other hand, the BB1010 timepiece trades in the stainless steel bracelet for calf leather straps in black, brown and blue, which harmonise with the dials available in black enamel, white enamel and blue sunray, respectively. Much like the BB1009 sibling, the range holds a MYOTA movement behind a skeleton caseback, within the 44mm stainless steel case of two-tone stainless steel with IP rose gold stainless steel or two-tone stainless steel with IP black.
The elegant BB1011 and BB1012 timepieces exude the perfect unions of form and function, aesthetics and technology, and robustness and comfort. Available in stainless steel bracelets and leather straps, the timepieces showcase eight genuine mother-of-pearl Swarovski crystals interspersed with regal Roman numerals, under the anti-reflection sapphire crystal glass. Encased in a polished-to-perfection steel, this immaculate range runs of a quartz MYOTA movement.
Saving the best for last, the BB1013 timepiece of the Swiss Ronda quartz movement flaunts a conservative and modernist look that balances the big date window, date retrograde and the second sub-dial in the stainless steel case. Upon the black or silver dial is a three-dimensional multi-layered Geneva Pattern that plays off well against the black calf leather straps, black bezel and rose gold casing.
