Braun is releasing a new range of watches for the year and their latest styles continue the "less is more" tone spearheaded by design icon and former Braun designer, Dieter Rams.

New styles include digital/analog hybrids, new leather strap updates, a travel-ready GMT, and our favorite of the bunch: an all ceramic model. The all ceramic model started as a concept and now has been added to the line as a production model. The watch perfectly captures the "less is more" attitude with with its incredibly clean design that has a full ceramic case and bracelet and comes in black or stone.

Bremont Wright Flyer

bremont.jpg

While many watch companies can lay claim to the ultimate aviation watch, Bremont has a leg up on all of them with their new watch, the Wright Flyer. Behind the classic dial lies a pretty impressive detail, a piece of the muslin used from the 1903 Wright Flyer aircraft, yes, the world's first airplane.

The material, used to cover the plane, will be located on the rotor of the watch's movement. What's equally as special is that the movement will be the brand's first in-house and what better place to introduce it than this limited edition. The 25-jewel BWC/01 33.4mm Automatic will feature a Glucydur balance, Nivarox CT balance spring, a Nivaflex mainspring, and a 50+ hour power reserve. The case will come in three editions: steel, rose gold, and white gold. Each will be released in a limited run and are accessorized with an alligator leather strap.
