Inspired by the eternal elegance of the city of Oxford, where Max Van Brauge began his professional career as a watchmaker, The Oxford Collection of Gentlemen’s watches expresses the same qualities as this historic city. Authenticity. Style. Sophistication. Quality.
With its luxurious purple features, and crest of crossed swords, the Eves & Gray Limited Edition Watch is subtly extrovert balancing the confidence of a true Gentleman with an adventurous spirit.
With the retro design of its 37mm watch face, its combination of contemporary finesse and classic style, each watch in the Superfecta 37 mm is as suitable for the Gentleman, as the Lady, who dares to take a risk at the Races.
Inspired by the classical artistry of the world of ballet, each Oxford Ladies' Watch is named after a celebrated ballerina, reflecting a similar grace, substance and eternal beauty.
The Superfecta 42 mm Collection harks to the world of horseracing, in particular the high stakes Superfecta wager - the selection of the first four finishing horses in correct order in a race. Synonymous with the lustre of such grand gestures, this is a winning collection of perfected timepieces.
In 1975, when I was ten, I inherited my father’s watch. It was a classic 1950’s Swiss Automatic Watch with 25 Jewels, typical of those worn by professional men at that time. It evoked the essential style and sophistication of the English Gentleman.
The classic design and quality of this first watch sparked my imagination as child. Ownership of this watch became the first step upon a career path that changed my life forever as a watchmaker.
It has been an incredible journey of over 25 years of work, research and design development that has led me here and I'm proud to present to you Van Brauge Watches.
