There are three types of crystals used in watchmaking: sapphire crystals; mineral crystals and plastic. In the luxury watch field, sapphire crystals are preferred. Sapphire is the second hardest substance in the planet, is extremely strong and is scratch resistant which makes it the top choice for a fine timepiece.
Of all of the glass, sapphire crystal is the least prone to shatter or be scratched. Contrary you ought to be more concerned that the watch may scratch another surface. All our watches are fitted with sapphire crystal which makes GONZA&BJÖRCK watches a premium choice.
While a lot of people buy timepieces only because of their look, anyone with a real eye for design and quality will understand that it is the inside what matters. We believe that the heart of the watch is what separates a masterpiece from mediocrity. That is why all our watches are powered by a Swiss Ronda Quartz movement.
Ronda Quartz movements have earned their deserved reputation over the years by providing premium quality and incomparable reliability. Swiss Ronda movements provide up to 10 years battery life.
Stainless steel 316L is the grade of stainless steel chosen by most luxury watch brands. 316L stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion such as seawater or acidic liquids. 316L is also magnetic resistant. Since we want to provide premium quality and affordable timepieces, all our watches are made of 316L stainless steel. Thanks to its remarkable corrosion and strength properties, our watches will preserve their original look for a long time.
Crafted from the finest raw materials and assembled with scrupulous attention to detail. All our straps are made from premium full grain calf leather from Barcelona. This type of leather gives us the possibility to provide a broad range of colors and textures without compromising quality. Our leather selection adds value to our watches by providing a step up on quality and a genuine look.
All our watches are water resistant 5 ATM. But what does this really mean? These are the measurements used by the watch industry to denote the amount of pressure a watch can withstand, not the depth to which the watch can be worn. ATM stands for atmosphere. 1 atmosphere is equal to about 10 meters. Therefore, watches classified as 5 ATM or higher are suitable for showering, bathing and swimming in shallow water. However, in order to preserve the watch's original look, we recommend avoiding long exposure to water.
