Hi,

While recently looking for a new watch, I noticed that I quite liked some of the more classic germasian watches (trias, newton&sons).

But knowing they are of pretty poor quality, I decided not to buy a trias.

However, I recently stumbled on what appears to be another germasian brand: Breytenbach. I say 'Appears to be', because not much can be found about it. I'm not really sure if this is good or bad, because people talk a lot more about trias. :think:

Either way, can someone tell me if breytenbach is just as bad as the rest of them, or if their QC is a tad higher?

that's the point: It's near spotless, but quite a lot of webstores sell it.
this website even says it's the official distributor of Breytenbach watches.. Why say that if it's a germasian brand? :S

Breytenbach is as much as germasian as Trias is, same movement, same cases, same hands, same pushers, same..........................

My guess is they say what they say because it makes them seem more important to an unsuspecting consumer. Beginning Marketing 101.

Why do they say they are the official distributor?? Because they probably are and because it makes them feel good about themselves. Whether they are the official or unofficial distributor doen't change what the watch is...and isn't.

Well, being the official distributor of Breytenbach, a no name watch brand with chinese origin, does not mean anything to me.
