You get what you pay for. How many times have you heard that in your life? As much as we all hope that exclusive deals we see online for the $25 Jordan’s are the deal of a lifetime, chances are it is too good to be true. Now, not to say you can not get bargains.
We’ve spent several hours researching the brand to offer you an unbiased and comprehensive Burei watch review.
With Burei you get a decent watch at an amazing price! The watches by Burei resemble big named brands like Rolex. Now, that’s what I call a bargain!
Pretty similar, huh? As you see above the prices are INSANELY different. So it really boils down to what you are looking for in a watch. If you have the money to spend, go ahead and buy that Rolex. If you are looking to buy a great looking watch, that may not be as luxurious and expertly crafted; but works well and does its job. Well, then Burei is a GREAT watch brand for you!
Below, I will review multiple watches by Burei that have the best reviews, and in my opinion, look the nicest and are most worth it!
- Burei Datejust Sapphire Crystal
- Burei Quartz “Roman Numerals”
- Multifunction Chronograph by Burei
- The Minimalist
- Burei Skeleton Automatic
- Chronograph Sports Watch by Burei
- Another Chronograph by Burei
- The Final Breakdown of the Burei Brand
Burei Datejust Sapphire Crystal
The first watch I will review by Burei is the one you see above, which looks almost identical to a Rolex Datejust. Datejusts’ are probably my favorite styled watch. I just love the bracelet, classic, clean look, and the great size that these watches come in.
When it comes to style, this watch does not disappoint. It has a great high-class look and even uses a sapphire crystal, which is better than many plastic crystals that are usually found on cheaper watches.
The timepiece features a well manufactured stainless steel bracelet, with a bit of weight to it. Not really comparable to the weight of a Rolex bracelet, but much better than I expected. You can also purchase the gold lining band, that you see at the beginning of the post, the band that I prefer. The dark black dial goes great with either bracelet and looks great with any outfit.
At 40mm, it fits great on any wrist. The 12mm case thickness, makes it so the watch does not stick out too much on the wrist. When you are wearing this piece, it seems to fit well but can loosen pretty quickly with wear.
Do not expect to be blown away by Burei’s movements. I would not go as far as to say they are terrible. But definitely not high grade. These are not Swiss-made movements, they are made in Japan. I can not find exact specifics of what type of movement is used in automatic Burei’s other than “Japanese Automatic Movement.”
Owners do claim that the watch does keep a great time though. So you can expect the watch to stay in the -20 + 20-second range each day, which truly is not bad. I just do not my readers expecting a high-grade, Swiss-made movement if you do decide to purchase. Just know at the end of the day, it will do its job and perform well!
Burei Quartz “Roman Numerals”
This is a great looking watch! I love what Burei did with the dial on this one! It has such a unique style, with a one of a kind overall look. Just look at the shiny gold, large Roman Numerals, that simply stand out on the handsomely fashioned striped dial.
With a gold-colored, 41mm case, the case perfectly complements the dial. Add the sleek, dark brown, calfskin band and you have yourself a beautiful timepiece.
What Makes it Great
Why this watch is a must buy is the price. You are not getting expensive materials in this watch. You ARE getting a great looking piece, with a moderate quartz movement and a durable model. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to the watch market and on a budget!
Multifunction Chronograph by Burei
This chronograph features a very classic design that fits the description of a dress watch. Decide between a silver, black-gold, black silver, or gold design on this one. Either way, every color line looks elegant and professional; perfect for any business or business casual attire.
One of my favorite qualities of this watch has to be the price. Overall it is a GREAT deal, I would go as far as to say a BARGAIN! Not flashy, not a designer but simply a nice looking watch at a very nice looking price! We don’t all have 8K to drop on a watch now!
A name that truly fits the piece on this one. Nothing flashy, expensive, or even super high quality. Just an all-black watch, waiting to compliment your all-black attire. I can not think of one “all black designer” watch on the market today. So when times call for all black; whether it be the sad times of a funeral, or you just redefining what style really is, this is a watch to seal the look.
You get a watch with 30m of water resistance, scratch-resistant mineral case, Japanese VX32 movement (don’t know much about this), and an analog time display. Another bang for your buck on this watch! (They are all affordable, just in case you have not noticed yet)!
Burei Skeleton Automatic
Come on guys, don’t be greedy. If you are buying yourself an affordable watch (or five), might as well get one for the lady. Now, granted, this may not be her first choice in style. But you have to admit, it is a cool looking watch.
Just do not mention the name of the watch when purchasing, unless she’s into that type of stuff of-course. The skeleton name on this one is due to the see-through dial, so you can see the movement inside.
You get a decent automatic movement on this one, so she will always be on time, like always! The watch comes in a nice size 34mm case, with a calfskin leather band. A brass bezel with sparkly, fancy-looking diamonds helps to make the piece more of a “standout” watch and takes some eyes off of the mechanics inside.
This is definitely not a watch for everyone, so browse through a few pics before purchasing. But once you own it, I believe many will fall for the wonderful timepiece. It has the look and glory of an expensive watch at 1/150000th of the price.
Chronograph Sports Watch by Burei
Time for a sports watch. When the clock is ticking down, and you’re on the edge of your seat, waiting for the final shot. It is always great to have a sports watch on your wrist. Wow, that was terrible!
All jokes on the sideline, this is a nice looking watch. Nice and casual, yet suitable for any attire. The crocodile grain leather is actually quite appealing and comfortable on the wrist.
As for the design, it is a 41 mm case, with a sapphire, scratch-resistant crystal; which again is hard to find on cheaper watches. The inside features a Japanese quartz movement, which is reliable enough for what your paying. And the color choices for this watch are fantastic. Choose between silver, black, or rose gold. No matter which one you decide to go with, I am sure it will please you.
Overall, another great purchase by Burei. It is a reliable and durable watch that can be worn with any outfit of your choice.
Another Chronograph by Burei
Here we have another chronograph watch by Burei. This one here has much more of a sporty, cheaper look to it. And in my opinion is not as nice. However, it is one of the most durable watches by Burei.
With this specific chronograph, it can withstand up to 50m of water resistance. A very substantial feature for an affordable watch. The black leather band also gives protection. The watch can take falls without having scratches all over the bracelet and maintains a smooth look. The 41mm case is also quite sturdy and has a tough, durable look to it.
Unquestionably the best watch for casual attire. I would go as far as to say make this your everyday workout/sport watch. It may not be as light and complex as an Apple watch, or other smartwatches, however, it is durable, pretty accurate at timekeeping, and to some, quite stylish.
The Final Breakdown of the Burei Brand
When it comes down to it, the Burei name is nothing special. I honestly can not find much history online to even explain who they are. Watch connoisseurs usually take history wholeheartedly and may not even purchase a watch if it is not from a well-regarded brand. Most people do not look at watches this way.
Many people look for a stylish and durable watch, that is good at doing its job; keeping time. If you are one of these people, and on the market for very affordable watches, Burei is for you.
An Affordable Brand With Good Looks
There is no doubt in my mind that Burei makes some of the nicest looking watches for the price point. They use reasonable mechanics and pieces for their watches, like sapphire crystals, which really make their watches beat other similarly priced timekeepers.
Even though it may be a mock look. I have to say the Burei Datejust is my favorite.
The Burei Datejust is a beautiful watch at a phenomenal price. This is one of the most similar-looking watches to a Rolex Datejust and just give off such a luxurious look. Despite it not being a Rolex; brand names aside it is just beautiful. A great gift for people of all ages and those who appreciate affordable, yet very attractive watches.
