A new dimension of time telling by “BEHRENS”

The story of BEHRENS started back in 2012 when the brand was 1st registered back then. The name BEHRENS is to tribute to the legendary German architect as well as known as an industrial designer, β€œPeter Behrens” (1868-1940) who was a pioneer of products’ design. During the 1st few years, the brand was not as it is now, it was only producing simple hours, minutes display timepieces with ordinary simplicity theme wristwatches designs. Then back in 2016/2017 when few other watch-lovers from different regions met together and started discussing about the possibilities of creating new mechanism and to bring these ideas into reality, we started designing and developing various types of mechanical modules via our small production facility incorporate with using CNC machines and 3D printing technology.

After about a year of development, we finally came up with two satellite time display modules that we have adopted to our earlier models, β€˜Astronomer’ and β€˜Space Traveler’, which were a breakthrough for the brand as we finally managed to jump out from the traditional hands’ type time indication. It was also a new era for BEHRENS as we have found our new brand direction for the future.

Since then, the brand has been focusing on designing and developing various types of mechanical modules giving our timepieces uniqueness for time display. 2 years after we have successfully launched our satellite time display collections (Astronomer & Space Traveler), we have continued with our modules’ development and launched 2 new collections, coded β€˜Apolar’ and β€˜Rotary’ back in 2020. With β€˜Apolar’ collection newly developed with a unique and all-new designed mechanism called the β€˜Moon Track’ which allows the orbit of the Moon to be shown and displayed in relation to the globe which acts as a Day/Night indication on the dial. Whereas for Rotary collection which was based on the Rotary automotive engine that was used on the 787B Le Man’s race winner in early 90s. This collection was inspired by the motion of this engine as concept and turned the twin rotaries into time display for hours and minutes. One of the milestones was these 2 concept watches managed to become annual GPHG 2020 nominees.

BEHRENS didn’t just stop there but continue with our further development for unique timepieces. In 2021, we have for the 1st time in the watch market, launched a special limited-edition timepiece, β€˜Mars Project One’ to tribute the human’s exploration journey to the Mars. This timepiece feature for the 1st time a double twin rollers time display function to display the time on Earth and Mars. This collection has brought us to the next level of watchmaking, allowing us to be more well-known in the watch market for what we can do.

In 2022, we have continued with upgrading our skills and designs by the launching of a few new models which includes the PERIGEE, an all-new collection featuring our 1st in-house manual wind movement, a power source to the unique time display via a rubies chain system and an accurate Moon Track system (2nd generation).

Also in 2022, a new chapter to the brand is the cooperation between BEHRENS and CHINAROCKET, a commercial space rocket design corporation to design and build our 1st space wristwatch which was successfully sent to space on 9th December 2022 (14:35).

Our focus is simply to bring our design concepts and philosophies, and turn them into realities via our own 6,000sq. meters manufacturing and production facilities. With our skilled engineering and watchmaking team alongside with high-precision machineries, we are capable to make our design into reality by modifying each mechanical movements adopted. Each of our mechanical wristwatches offers unique complications for the joy of modern time telling machines.

All our watches are designed and developed in-house by our young team to bring all new ideas of wristwatches to the modern market.

Β 

ORIGINAL Collection

BEHRENS, Original collections are base models that were designed and built with mechanical modules that are to display time with a touch of a unique style. This collection is powered by Miyota 9-series automatic movement to ensure stability and reliability. These collections are likely to be defined as BEHRENS entry level models. From which the price point is below USD2500.

INVENTOR Collection

BEHRENS, Inventor collections are the upper level models that we designed and built with higher standards. With this collections of mechanical wristwatch, we tends to add more mechanical complications. Powered by Swiss Made automatic movements which have gone through complete reassembling and polishing work, making these collections more unique and exclusive.

BEHRENS focus on design, develop and modify mechanical watch movements and to bring our wristwatch products to the next level of horology based on our own design philosophy. Meaning that each of our wristwatches produced is not just a time telling machine but as well a mechanical art-piece.

BEHRENS OFFICIAL FEATURES

Watch Making

Our watchmakers are highly skilled and each of the pieces we produce are carefully checked for ensuring high quality from the parts production to polish, to fine tuning. From which each of the parts produced are individually checked by watchmakers for Q.C.

Assembling

While all our watchmakers are highly skilled and trained, all our watches assembling processes undergo a series of high factory standards (with 2+1 years international warranty) to assure each watches are produced up to international standards.

Mechanical Module

One of our specialties is to design and develop our own functional mechanical module in-house. From which we have been making use of sapphire crystal materials to produce mechanical parts for gearing, etc. and we focus on developing satellite time display functions.

Water Proofing

Waterproofing being one of the most important features of wristwatch in the modern days. All our watches are waterproof to a standard of at least 5ATM (50M). Each of them is carefully checked by high standard testing equipment and machineries for assuring customers can enjoy their watches in all kinds of weather conditions.

Case Polishing

All our watch cases are made from high grade stainless steel 316L material. To ensure that every part of our watch meet the highest standard, each of our watch’s case has gone through a multi-polish process to produce the finest surface lines and best polish surface. All the edges and angles, the lugs, bezel tell how well the case are made.

Modern & Traditional

BEHRENS is a mix of modern and traditional watch manufacturer who while using modern high-tech machineries such as CNC machines for manufacture of parts, we also use a lot of traditional ways to manufacture and assemble our modules to ensure for accuracy.

CNC Machining

Modern watchmaking require a lot of micro-parts manufacturing which require modern technology such as CNC machine. The traits of our production has been making use of these machinery to produce all the small parts in-house which allow use to shorten the production time plus to ensure the quality.

3-Year Warranty

While each of our watch has been gone through a series of quality control test before coming from the production. To ensure that customer will be confident with our after sales, we do provide our watches a 3-years warranty service period from the date of your purchase. (terms and condition apply)
