The Bering watch company has developed a longstanding reputation for excellence and quality, and its 2018 lineup does not aim to disappoint those who have become fans of the company’s design approach. When it comes to designing state-of-the-art timepieces that are artistic and uniquely expressive, Bering is definitely in the top 10 watchmakers of all-time, and that is saying a lot. To understand the timepieces created by Bering, it is important to understand the inspiration behind the launch of the company. It is all inspired by the cool and attractive environment of the arctic circle.
It all started when Rene Kaeskov, a wealthy businessman, was dropped from a helicopter into the center of the Arctic. He was immediately overwhelmed by the simplistic beauty of that space. When he returned home, Rene shared his experiences with his business partners, who suggested that this splendor needed to preserved in a manner that was timeless. The Bering brand attempts to capture the beauty and landscape of the artists in a way that is nothing short of breathtaking.
Following are the top five Bering designs for 2018.
Calfskin Resistant Sapphire
What stands out immediately about this particular timepiece is its simplicity and masculinity. The watch features leather straps, a brushed stainless steel bezel, and a synthetic scratch resistant sapphire to protect the watch against scuffs and scratches from everyday use. The band is solid black and it serves to accentuate the elegant yet evocative presentation — adding to the aesthetic appeal of the watch. This watch is powered by analog movement technology. The fact that the watch has a relative resistance to water means that it can be used for snorkeling and other forms of recreational activity that involves water without concerns for water damage.
Crystal Sapphire 14440
Along with their unique and stunning designs, Bering has become famous for producing durability in their designs. Every aspect of the design process takes into consideration the need for durability. Even when the design itself does not appear durable, trust that the durability is present. The Crystal Sapphire 14440 is one of the designs that have a very sleek appearance while remaining highly dependable and durable. It is sporty yet stylish and it is literally oozing with class and presence. There is nothing overpowering about the watch. It is simplicity at its best.
Okay, the first two designs were for the men, but we cannot leave the women out. Bering makes a great line of women’s watches and the 10729 rests among the top designs for men or women. For the woman who is looking for something functional and elegant, the 10729 answers the bell. The watch features a blue and gray mother of pearl dial that is both uniquely beautiful and sporty at the same time. While the watch has a sporty look to it, it translates well with business suits and formal attire. This is one of the more versatile pieces in the Bering women's lineup.
The crystal is made of a highly durable synthetic sapphire dial that is immensely strong and resistance to scratches. The focus of this design was femininity, and it does not disappoint in that area in the slightest.
There is so much to be said for wearing the right timepiece with the right outfit. A stylish wristwatch can do so much for an outfit and it speaks volumes to a person’s personality. The Bering 11939 takes the classic Bering design up a couple of notches. The use of light-weight ceramic ensures the durability of the watch, while the chrono-effect lends to the boldness in this style. This particular design is probably most suited to a man, but the company promotes the style as being gender neutral. For the woman that is bold enough to wear this piece, it will definitely speak volumes.
One look at this gorgeous watch and you will understand why it landed in the top spot. It is likely the simplest design on the list, but it makes the most powerful impression. This watch oozes class, style, and sophistication. Unlike all of the knockoff brands, this watch is intricately designed and well-crafted so that every detail is perfectly stated. The Japanese quartz ensures that the time remains accurate. The solid Black dial lends to the sophistication of the watch and the sapphire dial ensures that normal wear will not result in excessive scratching.
