Fun, minimal watch by Breo
Member Name: claireylulu
Advantages: Looks great, feels comfortable
I seem to go through watches like winter coats, I had three last year! The first one of this year is yet again another Breo brought for me by my fiancé and I must admit he doesn't do to bad choosing them on his own. Breo watches are a little bit fun with their style and vibrant colours. They maybe don't tend to be the watch you would wear out to a posh restaurant but they are great for casual wear and give you great comfort. A Breo watch is not one that people won't notice you wearing. I have found numerous people notice and comment on my Breo watches.
The latest one to my collection is the Breo Cube watch. Breo call it the watch of three equals, design, colour and style. My watch is white I seem to really like white watches although I will admit they don't stay as clean as you would like. Breo have added a little splash of colour to the white one with a pink hour hand compared to the other black hands, also Breo is written in pink on the watch face and the date window is in pink in comparison to the actually black numbers in the window. I like the added bit of pink to it, it makes it that bit more interesting. This is certainly a fashion watch to wear and is quite minimal.
As you would imagine from the name of the watch it is square shape and is on the rather large size for a watch. The watch face is about 4cms by 4cms and the strap is about 2cms wide. When I first put it on my wrist it did feel a little on the large side but I have soon got used to it. It isn't too heavy for your wrist at 40g but you do notice it is on.
Like a lot of Breo watches it is made from plastic but never the less still has a soft flexible feel to it when you put it on your wrist. The cube watch has a buckle for its clasp making it easy to fasten. It has ten fastening holes making it suitable for all shaped wrists. I have mine on the second from tightest as I have small wrists. There are two strap loops to push the strap through and hold in place once fastened. The watch comes with three hands, the seconds hand is a little strange as it is the full width of the watch.
There is also as mentioned before a date window which is great apart from with an analogue watch you have to remember to chance it when the month only has 30 days in it rather than 31 but you get that with all analogue watches. To change the date there is a small round silver piece you pull out. As you pull it out you feel it click. Pull it out on one click and the date dial moves round. To change the actual time you pull it out on two clicks and the hands move to change the time. I found it very simple to use.
One of the things about Breo watches is they are all nearly water resistant and this one is no different. It has a water resistance depth of 30 metres. Now unfortunately I will have to take the manufacturers word on this as I rarely go swimming and if I did I wouldn't wear a watch, just a habit.
The Breo cube watch is like most over Breo watches available in a range of colours. The cube is available in six colours which are very bright we have pink, yellow, blue, orange, black and of course white. I do personally prefer white I don't think I am quite brave enough for some of the really bright colours such as pink or yellow!
The cube watch comes in a very nice cube box to keep it in. I am really impressed with the packaging. My other two Breo watches haven't come in as nice a packaging as this one. It would make an excellent gift. Looking on their website it seems the colour of the cube box matches the colour of the watch. So as you would expect my box is white with Breo time printed on the top of it.
My fiancé and I have bought off the official Breo website and found it easy to use and have always received the item a day or two later. We have never had to wait too long. The Breo watch is sold with a year's manufacturer's warranty.
This watch isn't at the cheap price end of watches but for what you get I think it is fairly cheap. You get a cool minimal watch that looks fantastic. It will cost you £45 and can be purchased from the official website or you can get it at the same price from Amazon.
Summary: would make an ideal present.
