TSUEN WAN, Hong Kong - Nov. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- Who Are We?

Hello! We are the BEHRENS ORIGINAL - a watch company that is based in Hong Kong. We specialized in watchmaking and watch modification. We pledged to inherit Peter Behrens' (14 April 1868 - 27 February 1940) design philosophy on watchmaking. He was a German architect and designer; and also one of the important figures to the modernist movement.

" continue innovating is always been our life goal. All watches are fixed in form and have the design of all looking alike. If we need to break that pattern, we will have to break it from the root -- the movement."

We have been modifying our own movement since 2012 and testing it for years before revealing it to the world. In honouring his name and his inspiring achievement, we named after him and thus, BEHRENS ORIGINAL.


"To challenge "moon phase watch" is our first milestone."

Combining both practicality and romantic sensation, moon phase watches are always adored by watch makers and collectors. We noticed that most of the moonphase watches on the market have a small moon display, so we decided to go for the opposite. Our watch has a big, complete moon display rather than a small, incomplete one. Just set your moon phase properly, then a full moon, new moon, half moon will appear periodically.


We have soul; so do watches. Movement is the soul of all watches and that is exactly what attracts all watch collectors. Our factory has more than 10 years of experiences in Swiss and Japan movement watchmaking and watch modification. This time we are proud to present our new modified mechanical movement BR2515 (BR2515 is a modificated movement from a famous Japan movement). It functions with a frequency of 4Hz (28,800 A/h), 24 jewels, automatic winding, and a sweep second movement. With a movement of height 4.3mm and 26mm overall diameter, it is super slim. If you are worrying about the power reserve of the watch, rest assure! The BR2515 provides up to 40 hours of power-reserve. It is perfect for your daily usage.


We deeply focused on watch modification and movement tuning. As such, absolute accuracy is always on our important checklist. We ensure the quality of every parts by using strict control testing standards before assembling the watches.

The testing procedure lasts 7 days, the movements and the watches will be tested in five positions, crown left, crown up, crown down, dial up and dial down. The stability of BEHRENS ORIGINAL watches are highly guaranteed.


We are all perfectionists, we see the pairing of the best leather strap and BEHRENS watches is an obligation. We provide a high quality fine crafted italian calf leather strap to give you the most comfortable and pleasant wearing experience. The strap with an interchangeable catch on both the lugs and the buckle sides allows you to change your strap without any special tool.

Multi-polishing Case

Case design is one of the significant symbols of our watches. Our dedication for watch making is clear: The case is made of 316L stainless steel which is widely used in high-end watches. We applied many different production processes to make a remarkable watch case. Multi-polishing methods are applied: including mirror polished on the bezel and the edges of the lugs, horizontal brushed on the sides, vertical brushed on the lugs and circular brush on the back. Although these production methods are long and costly, we aim to give you the best looking, durable, and elegant watch cases. Besides, the four lugs of the case are separately produced; the angle of the watch will be sharp and absolute. Such costly production method could only be found in luxury watches production.

To enhance the slim movement and the innovative moon phase disc, we minimized the height of the case to 7.9mm only. While including the sapphire crystal and the lugs, the height is now only 11.4mm(for MOON PHASE model) which is really comfortable to wear.

Sapphire crystal

Dome shaped sapphire crystal is used to give an ultimately slim appearance to the watch.  Due to the incredible hardness of sapphires - 9 on the mohs scale, our watches can hardly be damaged by plain scratches. Making this sapphire crystal is costly and time consuming, the yield rate is low. Although our special machine can only produce at most 3 pieces of dome shaped sapphire crystal per day, we persist to provide the best we can.

Diamond cutting reflective index


We innovated a new method of index making - the Diamond Cutting Index. The index is cut by a diamond cutter 20 times in two directions; thus the surface of the index is a complex obliques.To give the dial a luxurious touch, light is our major resource. With light reflects on the index's glossy surface from different angles, a rainbow(chrome) color is created. We believe such natural phenomenon will attract many of you.


We are confident about the quality of our watches - BEHRENS ORIGINAL watches. Each watch is backed by a 2-year warranty. We have our own factory and watch masters performing quality checks and maintenance everyday before shipping. So rest assure, your precious watches are well taken care of and are ready to give you the most comfortable wearing experience!


We will launch our kickstarter campaign in 2018Dec.
