Hi guys,

I've been eyeing on the B&R BR series, any thoughts and possible wrist shots? (as compared to a Pam)

Thanks in advance!

I have had a br01 and br02 both wear smaller than you think. Certainly alot smaller than a pam 312 for instance. I found the quality average better on the br01. On the br02 the rubber strap snapped and constantly cracked due to design , I had a piece of lume break off and the finish seemed very prone to scratching but I got both at close to a 45 percent discount and got most of my money back when I sold them.

In conclusion I would get a br01 as it is more iconic and a bit of fun but high end watch manufacture it isn't .

Hope that helps

Really? Oh man, I was getting a bit excited with the br02 line especially the PVD'ed chrono!

But thanks I'll keep that in mind!

PVD version looks great but pvd comes off if you are breathing in the same room, looks great though but don't pay more that 50 to 60% rep because if you don't get on with it you will get less than half your money back otherwise. MY ADVICE don't do it, it doesn't have the same presence as a pam, its just a fun watch that you could equally get spending much less on say a stein hart etc.

I have 4... bought most of them for 35% off and at that price I think they are great bang for the buck. Quality on the 02 seems better than on the 01... love them all though.
