    Lightbulb We designed Our first watch and we need your opinion

    Hello Guys !


    For the last few months, me and my team, have spent a huge amount of time in a completely new task for us. In our daily boring lives, we run boring IT & ECOM businesses, but lately we started a new company, our own microbrand and oh, god - it's so much fun in doing it. Well, I had dreamed about it for the last few years, and finally we are getting closer to real product.




    We had a lot of concepts and variations of how our watch should look like, more than 15 case designs, but all started from this very small Mood Board:

    And this is what we came to - 3-Hand Watch, Low-light sandblasted Finish on the case, Decorative ceramic bezel, High quality rubber band. It is the final design, 6 different combinations:

    We want to know what different people think about those designs. We need your opinion guys!

    I'm not sure I see the inspiration link, but I feel a bit of Genta-ism here. It's tasteful, I think perhaps the logo marker could be more integrated, it feels like an afterthought. I like the handset, but if you can do bi-color lume I think it might make some sense to have a dimmer or different color lume for the tail pip.

    What material is the case? I assume 316L.
    What size is the case? I assume 40mm.
    What movement will be powering it? I assume a high-beat Miyota 9015.
    What is the rough price point? I assume $500USD, less for early orders.

    Looks good.

    Not really my style. Wish someone would do a classic field watch with a screwdown crown.

    1. Why the name Brilon?

    2. Why no date window?

    Maybe you team can take of inspiration from yours technical iconic models for some design elements.


    (Only a suggestion, don't take it so literally)

    seems like you've hidden a crucial element of your "mood board". you had more than 15 case designs, but ended up with one, that looks surprisingly close to an iconic design of another watch company... a simplified version of it, but still very recognizable...

    I like #1 the best although I've never been a huge fan of hooded lugs.

    Also, imho the second hand arrow it too large.

    Best of luck!

    Re: We designed Our first watch and we need your opinion

    If this is the final design... I'm not sure why you need our opinion? Can you please come back and fill us in on the specifications, most notably size, lug width and movement specs? The material used in the bezel?

    1 & 3 are the only ones I personally feel look good. I don't like goldtone, and the white dial one fails with white straps (ugly) and black lume (cool but impractical.) The maroon bezel is also a permanent "no" from me; I don't wear anything that color but it could be OK for someone else.

    Also, will a date version be offered?
