Bewell Watch Review
Bewell watches are increasing in popularity thanks to their history, their classic looking watches yet with the use of modern movements and materials, and all for very affordable prices. Their sandblasted watches, in the style of the original WWII watches are now the watch of choice with either the Bewell 861748 Type A or Bewell 861749 Type B dial. It has to be said, the lume on these watches is brilliant and will even light up the room. These watches feature logo deletion, original style model engraving and blued steel hands.
Bewell watch are price from £200 for entry level Japanese Miyota automatic movement including the Bewell 861690 and Bewell 861688 watch. Swiss quartz watches and mechanical automatic watches are around £500, and £1200 for the Swiss automatic chronograph watches. The Miyota automatic movements are a little noisy and have no hacking second hand but are great value.
Whichever model you buy you will get exception build quality, with all new models now using Sapphire crystal glass. Their use of tried and tested movements means the watches remain reliable time keepers.
The watch straps let the watch down. They a stiff and thick and take some breaking in before they are comfortable. Many buyers are not fans of the rivets and therefore change the strap for an aftermarket one.
About Bewell Watches
Bewell looks back with pride on a long tradition, which found its origin in 1925. The distinctive design of the pilot watches found its beginning in the 40s and the current pilot watches collection of Bewell look confusingly similar to the original.
Bewell has always invested in the latest manufacturing and measurement equipment. Calibrated time scales and testing devices for water resistance are therefore on the cutting edge of technology.
They offer a range of quartz, automatic and mechanical watches. Their range has been extended from pilots watches to include navy, squad and chronographs using a range of Swiss ETA and Japanese Miyota movements.
There does not appear to be a UK authorised dealer for Bewell watches. You can order from their German website but after allowing for exchange rates and shipping, Amazon UK is usually cheaper if they have your chosen model available.
