Dial & Case Design

This popular Olivia Burton watch features a large white dial with rose gold PVD detailings for the hands and hour markers. Olivia Burton London is positioned around the 12 o’clock position of the dial.

The casing of the watch is made of steel, there’s a small crown located at the 3 o’clock position for operating the quartz movement.

Type Of Crystal

The watch features a mineral crystal glass that’s been specially hardened to offer extra protection from scratches and knocks. It’s commonly found on many watches in this price range.

 Watch Movement

At the heart of this Olivia Burton watch is a reliable and accurate Japanese quartz movement. Again this is found in many watches in this price range, quartz movments are affordable and require very little maintenance.

Watch Size

The casing diameter of this Olivia Burton watch measures approximately 38mm. The thickness of the case is quite slim at just 8mm which is also nice to see.


The strap is made of a stainless steel mesh style strap that fastens with a jewellery style clasp that’s very easy to adjust.

  1. The watch only has a basic 30m water resistance rating, this is unlikely to be an issue for most people, but it is worth mentioning
