Braun AG established in 1921, became a wholly owned subsidiary of The Gillette Company from 1984 until 2007. Procter & Gamble Co., the American multinational consumer goods company, subsequently acquired Gillette in 2005. In October of 2009, the company "Zeon Limited", a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Herald Group; a Public Corporation listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Procter & Gamble Co. to develop and produce clocks and watches using the Braun brand starting in 2010. Zeon has built their business selling fashion products based on the strength of licensed brand names. Zeon manufactures watches under a number of licensed brands including Braun, Vivienne Westwood, Playboy, Ed Hardy, Beetles, Lambretta, Alexandra Burke, Paul's Boutique and Bench. Zeon owns the "Ingersoll" trademark.
Original Braun watches garnered a reputation for providing high quality with Swiss Ronda movements, so the question is, has Zeon Ltd's execution been faithful to Braun's stellar reputation? I'd have to answer; yes but no. I'm assuming the watch is cased in Asia as Zeon trades in Hong Kong and they've made a conscious effort to hide the country of origin that isn't listed on the watch case, the box or any printed materials. Seems obvious that the Braun watches originate from Zeon's home market in China.
The watch casing and band are quite lovely so in my opinion Zeon has done an excellent job recreating the essence of Braun's design, but watch movements are arguably the most important part of any watch and that's where Zeon has cut corners. This Braun is fitted with a Miyota 1S13 Japanese quartz movement (Zero jewels) that is a reliable pedestrian movement found in lots of fashion watches ($6-$7 movement). Miyota quartz movements are made by a division of Citizen LTD and assembled in Japan. Battery life for this movement is rated at 3 years.
Zeon provides a two year warranty with the specification that the owner is responsible for shipping costs both ways and that a standard processing fee of $15 is applied to all warranty service requests. So at the end of the day, a warranty trip costs you about $25 when you add freight. Warranty coverage essentially excludes everything other than the movement that only costs Zeon a few bucks to replace so any ‘warranty service’ is essentially client funded.
Based on the casing and the caliber of the movement, in my opinion this watch should retail between $65 to $85.
Okay, so it's been about a year and a half since I ordered this watch and I've now had to replace the battery twice. I know what you're thinking, "Maybe you just had bad batteries." Nope, not the case. I took it in to have it looked at by a trustworthy jeweler, and to put it very simply, apparently the movement just isn't good quality. This is very disappointing, considering how aesthetically pleasing this watch is.
Definitely worth the buy for the price!
