Bravur BW003 Automatic Watch

It’s not easy adding a touch of Don Draper-esque dapperness to your look but a well-chosen timepiece is about as close as you can get in our opinion here at Coolector HQ and they don’t come much classier than these great looking Bravur BW003 Automatic Watches which are hitting the shelves this month. Elegant, understated and boasting an exceptional performance, it’s little wonder these timepieces are already causing a bit of a stir in the world of horology.

The BW003 Automatic Watches from Bravur are each hand-built in Sweden and boast a thoroughly impressive and top performing, Swiss made automatic movement from Sellita – namely, the caliber SW300-1. This collection comes in six different colour combinations so you’re sure to find one that tallies with your own style aesthetic. Prices start at $1195 for the Bravur BW003 which represents excellent value for money when you consider the quality of the craftsmanship and exemplary materials used throughout their crafting.

Bold Elegance

Aesthetically superior and boasting fine features throughout, it’s not hard to see why the BW003 is so eagerly anticipated amongst timepiece aficionados. These great looking watches have a stainless steel case which has been crafted from Swedish high grade steel, and houses the mighty impressive Swiss made 25 jewel automatic movement. Of the six colourways available, it is the bottle green and white bi-coloured dial with applied hour indexes with Luminova C1 luminous filling that has really caught our eye here at Coolector HQ.

The Bravur BW003 Watches (from $1195) are each individual numbered on backside to make it unique to you and your wrist. The sapphire case back model of the BW003 has a rhodium plated movement, with snail and perlage decoration on the bridges and our signature pattern etched on the rotor, making it truly stand out from the crowd. The watches in this collection are available with either a sapphire display back side, showcasing the movement, or a steel back side, which gives it an even slimmer profile.

It is the cases of the BW003 that really impresses. These watches use Bravur’s newly developed Solitär case which measures 39mm and is crafted from Swedish steel, which is widely considered to be the finest steel in the world. The case design features several of the watchmaker’s signature design elements, one of them being the CNC cut pattern on the back side, and it has a pleasingly slim profile on the wrist. By using a curved dial, Bravur have been able to make the case of the BW003 slimmer than the norm. The applied hour indexes are filled with Luminova C1 luminous colour, which provides excellent night time readability. The date window, positioned at 6 o’clock, has a discreet chrome frame and an understated elegance to it.

Swedish Made

There is certainly a Scandinavian sophistication to the Bravur BW003 Watches which we’re loving here at Coolector HQ. This exemplary series of timepieces are built by hand in the small coastal town of Båstad in Sweden, by Bravur’s experienced watch makers. Each watch is carefully tested and inspected several times during production. Inside the case the watch maker engraves his signature, as a way to show pride for his work.

With the prices starting at a mighty reasonable $1195, you can get your hands on a high quality timepiece without breaking the bank with the Bravur BW003. With an energy reserve of 42 hours and a 5ATM water resistance, these watches are ideal for day to day adventures are definitely on our list for 2020’s coolest timepieces.
