When you hear the name Braun, the first things that should come to mind are razors. And it’s true. Braun makes some of the best razors you could ever find today. However, you should know that Braun’s engineering is not limited to razors alone. Braun also happens to be excellent watchmakers. You shouldn’t be surprised. It’s a mere translation of style and engineering. Braun watches are some of the sleekest watches you can find out there. They are simultaneously classic and contemporary, and they’re exactly representative of today’s modern man. Here are the five best Braun watches that you can get on the market today.
Braun Men’s Analog Watch 38mm
This watch is actually a reissue of a 1970s Braun classic. That classic was designed by one Dieter Rams, Steve Jobs’ inspiration for many Apple products. This watch has a black leather strap and a black face. It’s as clean looking as any watch could be. The stainless steel case is a beautiful contrast to all the black; the silver-colored linear and numerical markers. Even the hands are silver in color. There is a contrast, however, with the seconds hand. It’s a thin yellow line that adds just the right amount of detail to keep the watch classy and cool.
Braun Classic Men’s Chronograph
This is a decent size watch at 40mm. This Braun Chronograph has a leather strap and a solid stainless steel case. It has a more rugged look compared to other Braun designs probably because of the three sub dials that add a lot of detail and texture. The markers are simple Arabic numerals. The calendar element is on the four o’clock position, and there are also three crowns on the right side of the watch that add a bit more personality to the whole watch. This Braun is water resistant up to 165 feet. This means that you can shower with it and look stylish while you’re swimming. Don’t take the watch any deeper though; it won’t be able to handle the pressure.
Braun Men’s Classic Calendar Analog Display Quartz Watch
This particular Braun watch has similar characteristics to many of other Braun designs. It’s got the same leather strap and a stainless steel case that’s colored black. However, the face of this watch is square instead of round, giving the watch an entirely different personality. The markers are different as well; they count the minutes of the hour instead of having just the 12-hour marks. The calendar element is positioned on the six o’clock, yet another way this watch is different. With water resistance of up to 165 feet, this watch is made to handle a little bit of moisture. If you’re the type who doesn’t like to take your watch off, you can go ahead and take this one into the shower with no problem.
Braun Men’s Digital Display Quartz Watch
If you prefer a more tech look, this digital Braun watch will make you look like the absolute modern man. This watch will remind you of a GPS watch. While it may not have the capabilities of a GPS watch, it certainly will look good on your wrist. Sometimes all you need a watch to do is simply tell time. This Braun is as sleek as any watch could be. The face is made out of a durable mineral crystal material that will last this watch for ages. It’s also water resistant up to 165 feet, so you shouldn’t worry about it if it gets wet just a bit. And don’t worry; the leather calfskin strap will be able to keep with it all.
Braun Men’s Classic Stainless Steel Watch with Mesh Bracelet
This is one that looks most different out of the other watches on this list. Instead of the usual black leather straps, this watch has a sleek stainless steel mesh bracelet. The stainless steel case holds a white dial that has contrasting black markers. Everything on the dial is simple and linear, adding to the clean look of the entire design. What you’ll find similar here is the yellow hand that ticks the secons away. There’s also a calendar feature on the six o’clock mark. This is the kind of watch you might want to wear everyday; you’d look good doing so.
