So our month of watch features continues and we step up to the next level regarding pricing as we’re featuring the Brera Orologi Eterno GMT. They sent us a demo of this watch and from he moment we received it, we knew we had something different. We don’t mean that in a “corny marketing speak” kind of a way but the actual packaging and box that this watch came in was probably worth more than our first car. We began to open up the box and were greeted with a beautiful watch staring right back at us. If you’re a visual kind of guy, we did a full video review that you can check out here:
For those of you that don’t like to watch videos are at work and afraid your boss will finally figure it out that you don’t work, we’ve got a good breakdown here too. The watch case itself is 43mm which is kind of the perfect size. We’ve not been fans of the gigantic watch face trend that’s been popular for the past few years but are excited that watches like Brera are bringing people back around. The 43mm size is perfect because it doesn’t dominate your arm (instantly giving you dainty wrists) and compliments any outfit well (business or casual). The case is actually made of stainless steel with a blue multi-level dial. The width of the strap is 22mm which we found to be very comfortable and were pleasantly surprised with how much we liked the leather strap. Brera does offer different straps but the leather one almost seemed to make the watch pop even more taking the attention on the watch itself and not the band. They actually put a rubber lining on the inside of the leather strap which held the watch in place (whereas many leather strap watches slide all over the place).
The movement of the watch is Swiss with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal which furthers the high end design that Brera was aiming for. The crown system is a screw down system with press buttons for making adjustments very easily. The watch is resistant up to 10atm which for us silly Americans means 330 feet. We don’t recommend making this your diving watch though as the high end price tag doesn’t lend itself to that kind of wear and tear. We really loved the blue stitching that they put on the straps which fits perfectly into the watch face color theme. There are also little touches we loved like the Brera branding elements from the clasp to the back of the watch itself. You are also able to track the time both home and away as Maurizio Pasi the founder of Brera found the need as he traveled through multiple time zones. Pasi has logged a ton of travel and we’re firm believers that he’s utilized the needs many travelers need into his watches as well as taking aviator/plane elements into the design of his watches. We loved the Brera Orologi watch and recommend you go out and purchase it now. Click here for image source and where purchase the Brera Orologi watch.
