A beautiful well manufactured piece equally at home home as dress watch and a robust every day accessory. The strap and clasp are clearly of excellent quality. Mention must also be made of the box which must be worth fair amount in its own. I am very pleased with my purchase.

This is just beautiful and looks like a very expensive mens watch. Dreyfuss certainly know how to present things well as the wooden box it arrived in is very well made and loiks stunning on the side. All in all I would strongly recommend this to anyone.

UNVERIFIED REVIEW (The reviewer has not yet been verified themselves as a Watch Shop customer)


Overall

The Dreyfuss & Co 53 Chrono is a great little watch for the money and feels like a sturdy, well made timepiece. For a Handmade Swiss watch of this quality I cannot really argue the the price.

Full review below.

The Presentation - 9/10

The packaging that this watch comes with is pretty much flawless. When it arrives it comes in a polished wooden box, which is padded internally. Its seriously beautiful and immediately makes you feel like youve bought an investment rather than just a watch. Inside you get the watch, a brass plaque for mounting to the box which can be engraved if necessary, a small instruction manual, a certificate of authenticity and a tag bearing the Dreyfuss and Co mark. I was a little disappointed the manual wasnt more substantial and personalised for this particular watch rather than simply for most Dreyfuss & Co watches, but the rest is so well presented that this doesnt even really matter.

The watch - how it looks - 9.5/10

It looks beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. The watch itself has a lot more detail than can be seen on photos and those details make it a little bit more special. I especially like the grating marks on the buttons for the Chrono, very nice touch!

The watch looks like a sports watch which can be used for dress too. It is approximately 12mm high, so it may not fit under all cuffs, but the screen is clear and the contrast of black face with white/silver dials is a lovely detail.

The printing on the face is clear and the date window is large enough to be read easily. The design on the caseback is also very well designed. It has a mirror like finish and contains the Dreyfuss & Co logo in the centre with writing on the outside of the circular logo, saying Handmade Dreyfuss & Co. Switzerland.

The butterfly clasp is a thing of beauty. It is only a small band over the leather with the engraved Dreyfuss Logo when closed, but when opened the arms are hollow rather than being made of one solid bit of metal. Printed on the arms are Dreyfuss & Co with the logo and the words Stainless steel.

Finally the watch gets extra bonus marks for the crown, which contains the silver Dreyfuss logo, cast in black plastic. It looks very nice, and in a world where most watches simply have an unmarked crown it certainly stands out.

The watch - comfort - 8/10

The watch is very light and as a result is very comfortable. Unlike other, heavier watches you dont notice this as much. The leather strap is airy enough to mean your wrist doesnt get too hot, and there is plenty of adjustment in the clasp so it should fit wrists of all sizes. As said previously, it may be a little talk to fit under all cuffs, but this does mean you can show it off a little.

The watch - build quality - 9/10

After wearing the watch for 2 weeks straight, I am overall very satisfied with how well made it is. If feels sturdy despite being relatively lightweight. It is made by Rotary, so you can be satisfied too that the watch has been built to a high standard. I will mention however that the black bezel is prone to light scratches. The one I have worn has developed a few VERY small scratches in the black paint, barely enough to notice - I am very clumsy however. If youre prone to manual handling work, or accidents I would recommend wearing it only for occasions as it may be scratched.

As for the rest of the watch, it is rated as waterproof completely, unlike most watches which are simply water resistant. The screw-down crown creates a seal against the water and means you can go swimming wearing it. It is also handmade in Switzerland, a point I have personally confirmed with the manufacturer.

The movement - 8.5/10

The movement used in the watch is the Quartz 13 Jewel Swiss Made Ronda 5040.D. The movement is gold plated and the whole watch is assembled in Switzerland. The Ronda movement seems good, it hasnt had any noticeable time loss in the last 2 weeks of wearing it, but I will update this should anything occur.

The Chrono function works well to record the milliseconds within the first hour, and can even record intervals when using the lower button, which is great when timing races and other sporting events.

Customer service - 9.5/10

I have contacted the manufacturer to gain additional information about the watch since buying it. The customer service reps were really helpful and gave me exactly the information I needed.

Overall - 8.9/10

The watch is fantastic, Dreyfuss & Co are a relatively small manufacturer, and there isnt a huge amount of information about them available either, but buying a watch from them isnt a risk at all - I have heard some people saying they feel that Dreyfuss & Co are doing a Bugatti, meaning that the manufacturer may be making a loss on the construction of each watch to show the public what they can do. I dont know if this is correct, but that should be an indicator to the quality you can expect from this watch.

Overall, well worth the money and I would recommend it any day!

A smart, classy watch which represents great value for money. Attention to detail is fantastic from the beautifully designed fac and intricately detailed buttons to the thoughtful clasp. A nice middle ground between more common fashion brands and the luxury swiss watch market.

Love the watch. Been looking for a black face and black handle style for ages and when this came up in the sale I had to get it. A lot of watch for the price!

Really decent finish and to me looks like a watch double the RRP.
