Braun BN0231WHBKGAL Watch Review

Dial & Case Design

This is another timepiece that focuses on minimalistic design. The dial has a simplistic finish to it with these clean lines and numerals style hour markers that come in a neat little font. I really like the use of this yellow seconds hand as it brings just a touch of colour into the overall design.

The casing of this Braun watch is made of a strong stainless steel and has a diameter of 40mm with a slim 9mm depth. The crown is sat in the 3 o’clock position and has a simple push down operation.

Type Of Crystal

On the front of the watch we find a mineral crystal glass. It’s a popular glass found on many watches in ths price range. They specially harden it to offer a better level of scratch and shatter resistance. You’ll find they’re less likely to shatter than a sapphire crystal glass.

Watch Movement

At the heart of this Braun watch is a quartz movement. These are reliable and accurate, often found in many affordable watches. You’ll find they require very little maintenance and often have long battery lifes.


A sleek black genuine leather strap accompanies the stainless steel casing on this Braun timepiece. It has a width of approximately 20mm and fastens with a buckle style clasp.

Water Resistance Rating

This watch has a 50m water resistance rating. A 50m or 5 bar rating makes this watch suitable for swimming, white water rafting, and fishing.

My Final Thoughts On This Braun BN0231WHBKGAL Review:

I’m quite enjoying featuring these minimalistic timepieces lately. I really like this style of design so I’ll likely be adding more reviews in the coming weeks.

This men’s Braun watch is affordable, well designed, and built with quality parts. True it’s unliklely to appeal to a watch snob but that’s not really the market that Braun are aiming for with this watch.

After looking into the watch design, quality, features, and pricing this watch received a 8/10 from us at The Watch Blog.
