Burei Watch Company’s Men’s Chronograph Model BM-7011-C01EH

There’s a term some like to throw around, “Affordable Luxuries”. Usually it’s applied to disposable items with little use or value. So I was hesitant to apply that term to a watch, something my husband takes very seriously. But with a small semantic change, you can also drastically change a term’s meaning. Burei is Affordable Luxury, in every sense of both words.

There are cheap watches on the market, a ridiculous amount, made cheaply with poor materials and no craftsmanship, and won’t last kissing time. There are quite a few expensive watches as well, with bejeweled automatic movements, Swiss craftsmanship and jaw-dropping price tags. Somewhere in  he middle are watches for everyday wear with quality builds and prices that won’t change your tax bracket. Some of their names are synonymous with value and quality. Seiko. Casio. Timex. Citizen. There’s a new player on the block, and Burei is going to be making a splash in the market very soon!

Burei is a new watchmaker but you’d never know it from the fit and finish of their products. Priced to meet any budget, this Burei Chronograph has the heft and feel of a watch that cost 10 times as much. The croc embossed caflskin strap (at a healthy 20mm!) with contrast stitching makes a bold statement immediately. But the bright accents on the face are just as striking, and fully functional. The 42mm case and decorative bezel are a wonderful mix of polished and brushed stainless steel. The chronograph pushers are knurled, have a cobalt blue finish on the tips, and are easy to use. The mineral crystal should is bright and clear and should be scratch resistant to all but the most deliberate abuse. The pushers for the chronograph functions are smooth, and the functions are a breeze to control. The screw-down case back is water resistant to 50m, and the Japanese quartz movement is precise and made to last. You get a day and date window at the 3 o’clock marker, and a ticking second hand on the bottom chronograph window. It rests easy on the wrist and doesn’t feel heavy, and isn’t a huge, obnoxious “wrist clock”, but a has an understated elegance that means the watch will be good for work, built well enough for leisure activities, and sharp enough for wearing with a suit.  All of this, and they provide a warranty card, detailed and clear instructions, a presentation box with pillow, and a gift bag, and at just $49.99 shipped from Amazon, this is a STEAL. I mean, I’ve paid so much more for some of Hubby’s watches and gotten sooo much less, I wish I’d known about Burei sooner! These watches make a great gift, an amazing Groomsman gift, or just a Every Day Watch for the man in your life.

But Burei didn’t stop there. They stand behind their timepieces. If you’re unsatisfied for any reason in the first 30 days, you get a full and complete refund, no questions asked. Any quality issues in the first 12 months? No problem, Burei will refund 100% of the purchase price. Any problems in the first 24 months? Send it back to Burei and they’ll get it back to spec for free. And when bought through Amazon, you get a 2-year Asurion warranty instead. That’s peace of mind you don’t get with most brands, but Burei believes in their product, and I believe in Burei. They have an entire line of quality timepieces that fit any and all styles, from a basic dress watch to a gorgeous automatic line, and prices so attractive, there’s no reason to not pick up a few.
