The same great style and design of the Heritage 40, now appropriately sized for a woman’s wrist! If you’re looking for a great ladies-sized dress watch, the Corniche Heritage 36 might be the watch for you!Read More
Priced at under $175, the Bonvier Classic offers a variety of attractive styles to choose from.

I wish they’d have used sapphire instead of mineral glass, but it’s not unreasonable for the price point. I like the Classic 40mm overall.Read More

Priced alongside comparable quartz watches from Swiss and Japanese watchmakers, the Heritage 40 absolutely deserves your consideration if you’re wanting a dress watch that’s different but still classic.Read More

These revenues - which do not impact how much the watch you're purchasing costs - enable us to purchase new watches to review (we buy most that we review), pay for hosting/development costs, and generally enable us to keep the website online.
We have deliberately chosen a design that always ensures our content is displayed first, with advertising placement second. Thank you for supporting our website.
