After 15 illustrious years in the watchmaking industry, Brice Jaunet decided to create his own watch brand. Jaunet began his career as a skilled watchmaker at Richemont, where he specialized in Cartier watches. He continued to work at Baume & Mercier and then internationally at Raymond Weil. Soon after, he became Vice President of International Marketing for the Zenith brand.
As his inspiration and entrepreneurial spirit continued to grow, Jaunet collaborated with several of his Swiss designer colleagues to create a watch brand that would bring his vision to life. Largely inspired by his student days at Oxford and British sporting activities, Jaunet founded the Briston watch brand in 2012. Pulling artistry and originality from boat racing, cricket and polo, Briston takes pride in its sporty and casual designs.
Jaunet’s primary goal was creating authentic timepieces for affordable prices, without compromising on quality. The Briston watch brand does just that. Offering a plethora of unique styles and materials in their collection of watches, Briston manages to perfectly balance form and function in their designs. One of their most popular models include the Briston Clubmaster watch. Sometimes referred to as the Clubmaster Chronograph or the Clubmaster Automatic, the brand offers not only men’s options, but Briston ladies’ watches as well.
Briston Watch Collections
The Briston Clubmaster Classic is known for the “cambered square” shape of its case. Inspired by the roaring twenties, the unique shape pairs with a round dial to create a new take on a classic look. This timepiece comes in a 40mm case size, available in two materials - cellulose acetate or steel.
The Briston Clubmaster Sport features a 42mm case size that mimics the iconic lines of the Clubmaster Classic. Inspired by 1960’s race cars, the timepieces in this collection offer chronograph and date functions. Known for its distinctive racing stripe on its strap, the Briston Clubmaster Outdoor also features chronograph functions and comes in a 44mm case size.
