BREDA is a Dallas-based watchmaker that’s shaking up the world of watches with its refreshingly all-encompassing approach. While the design of the burgeoning brand’s watches is anchored in the idea of self-expression, the specific styles make reference to the length and breadth of watch design. From classic styles like Virgil or Visser that boast stainless steel bracelets and square faces to the colorful new arrival Play which makes use of a recycled thermoplastic polyurethane band, BREDA covers all angles of modern watch culture.
While many modern-day watchmakers specialize in classic or modern design, BREDA does both. This does, however, add to the difficulty of choosing your next timepiece. Do you honor the classics with a gold, silver, or leather watch, or do you opt for something that breaks new ground? To make things easier, we’ve put together a style guide to ensure your new BREDA wristwatch matches your style.
Explore the diverse range of watches by BREDA.
As the name suggests, this retro-style timepiece is inspired by the work of artist Carel Nicolaas Visser whose work explored the relationship of bold shapes in space. Visser’s gold-plated stainless steel five-link bracelet goes beyond trend and occasion, fitting as comfortably with streetwear as tailoring. A 35mm square face boasts a striking brushed gold dial to complete the classic style.
Jane is one of the more elegant watches we’ve seen in years. Its slender 23mm oval case is characterized by a natural mother of pearl dial which compliments the stainless steel bracelet fastening with a jewelry clasp. Completely unimposing, Jane is full of quiet confidence.
A vintage favorite, Virgil features a slim 26mm gold-plated rectangular case which frames a brushed gold dial punctuated by black increments. While it’s rare to find rectangular watches nowadays, Virgil shows that this timeless style still deserves a spot in your accessory rotation as a refined and out-of-the-ordinary highlight piece.
A 26mm square case acts as the centerpiece for Esther. The vintage design catches eyes with its sun-ray ivory brushed dial that contrasts smoothly with a gold-plated stainless steel bracelet. Timeless design combined with a Japanese-made Miyota Quartz movement means that you’re bang on time and perfectly in style every time.
The newest member of the BREDA family, Play acts as a depiction of motion, imagination, and pleasure. This multi-faceted timepiece calls for summer days spent in the sun with its recycled plastic construction that’s built to withstand high heat and adventure. As well as being built to last, Play comes in a selection of bold colors to brighten up your everyday style.
