Today I’m reviewing the Deva 40mm 1st edition watch from Burtley & Baines. View their full collection here www.burtleyandbaines.co.uk
First let’s quickly run over the features/details of this watch:
I’ve had this beauty for a little over a month now (I don’t mess about with my watch reviews!) and I really love it. My watch arrived very quickly and came in a black box embossed with the Burtley & Baines logo ‘We wanted to represent the feeling of power & elegance that wearing a Burtley & Baines watch gives you and this has been constructed perfectly within the form of the Burtley & Baines Lion‘ after first trying on the watch I can assure you they have achieved an elegant feel with the design.
The dial has a very clear minimalist design, adding to the classic premium feel of the watch. There’s no second hand, something I was admittedly slow to pick up on. It’s not a feature I’ve got with any of my other watches but I have to say I think it compliments the whole premium luxury feel of the watch very well.
This watch sits incredibly well on the wrist, with a case that’s just 7mm thick making it extremely comfortable. This also fits in with the smart appearance of the watch, something I’d happily wear out to a posh restaurant and the like.
Let’s talk movement. The Deva 40mm first edition features a Swiss Ronda 762 Quartz. This is a 4 jewel, gold plated movement with a standard battery life of 10 years. It’s a high quality quartz movement specially for 2 handed watches.
The watch has a genuine leather strap embossed with ‘BURTLEY & BAINES’. It’s genuine leather, nice and comfortable as you’d expect. At 150mm – 195mm it will fit most wrists. I’ve worn this out on plenty of occasions and I haven’t had any discomfort like I would occasional get with other watches, where you end up being a little irritated, so this is a plus.
I’ve had plenty of time to wear this watch to my hearts content and am thoroughly happy I was given the chance to review it. It’s been comfy and stylish throughout, quite a few friends of mine have noticed it and complimented on how nice it looked. Putting everything into perspective I’d say this watch is good value at £110. And I’d be more than happy to recommend this to anyone i knew.
I like the whole Burtley & Baines brand as a whole. They have a great collection so far and I’m sure if you’r not quite a fan of this one, you’ll find another watch by them that you’ll want. The only thing I believe they are currently missing that I would suggest is possibly a version with a 36mm case for women (perhaps in the future eh!).
