Briston Clubmaster Classic: Ode to the Roaring Twenties

Briston came up with the Clubmaster Classic as part of its even bigger Clubmaster collection. It features a unique cambered square case shape, a nod to the typical watch designs as seen from the 1920s. The Clubmaster Classic is a unique timepiece with a round watch segment. Overall, the watch measures around 40 mm with cellulose acetate and stainless steel construction.

The impressive Briston Clubmaster Classic displays a marriage between form and material. Indeed, it’s a truly unique timepiece that’s devoid of the conservative designs you get from round watches.

How much is a Briston Clubmaster Classic watch?

The Briston Clubmaster Classic carries only two iterations with different colors and finishing. For this, the price range for the models in this collection doesn’t vary much. You only have to consider the functions available for the watch as well as the materials used on it such as gold, black PVD coating, or silver. Because all of the watches are powered by quartz movements, the timepieces are in the more affordable range.

Prices for the Briston Clubmaster Classic Chronograph Watches

All of the watches under the Briston Clubmaster collection carry a distinct shape called a cambered square. Briston sought to ensure that all the watches come in a very retro design. That said, you can find a watch for you, depending on what material or color you prefer. As for the Briston Clubmaster Classic, you can find watches made from acetate cellulose. Each of these timepieces carry a color that will represent your style. One of its most popular iterations includes one with a chronograph function. With this model alone, you can find a wide selection of colors and styles to choose from.

Firstly, you should know that all Clubmaster Classic watches come with a cellulose acetate construction. This is a very new material that a lot of high-end eyewear manufacturers use. This material comes from 70% fiber and cotton. That said, it’s all-natural with hypoallergenic features. To further improve on the cases of the watch, Briston included different finishes for its watches. Some watches don’t come with any special finishing at all. However, on some models such as the Clubmaster Classic Alpine Hunter, you can find special PVD-coated finishing. Others come in silver and if you’re feeling a little fancy, gold finishes in either rose or yellow gold are also available.

The Briston Clubmaster Classic Chronograph watches come with a Quartz Miyota OS21 movement. For a quartz movement, it’s very reliable with an accuracy of more or less 20 seconds per month. Its battery also lasts a long time – five years. This movement allows the watch a date feature alongside its 2-chronograph function. All the chronographs from this collection also come with a water resistance of up to 100 meters or 10 ATM. They also come fitted with interchangeable NATO straps for a sportier look and feel.

So, exactly how much is a Clubmaster Classic Chronograph watch? Depending on the material used on the watch, they can range from $320 USD to $350 USD on retail. Moreover, there are no men’s or women’s sizes for these watches. All watches only measure 40mm each (that’s 40mm by 40mm for the square). So, you don’t have to consider the sizes for the pricing of these watches. The most expensive ones come with gold or black PVD finishing, demanding $350 USD for each watch. Silver finishing can cost you $320 USD or less if you prefer pre-owned models.

Prices for the Briston Clubmaster Classic HMS Watches

The Briston Clubmaster Classic collection primarily has two available iterations. Firstly, the chronograph watches, then the HMS watches. HMS stands for Hours, Minutes, and Seconds; basically, the fundamental functions of a timepiece. The Briston Clubmaster Classic HMS watches carry the most basic function yet they look just as sporty. Similar to its chronograph counterpart, you can expect the same structure from these watches.

These unisex watches should have cellulose acetate cases and the finishing also differs from each other. For instance, you can find a gold finish on some of the watches. Other watches may have silver finishing and others have no special finishing at all. Either way, all the watches from this collection are incredibly stunning. They feature different colors that make them truly stylish for a sports watch.

At the heart of these watches is the Quartz Miyota 2315 movement. This is a very reliable movement with an accuracy rate of about 20 seconds per month. The battery lasts for three years so that’s one thing to consider about this watch. It also displays everything you need right at a single glance. The dial features an alternating Arabic numeral and line markers that you can easily read even in the dark with SuperLuminova. A date window sits at 3 o’clock as well and that’s highlighted easily with bold numbers. As expected, these watches also have a water resistance of up to 100 meters of 10 ATM.

Generally, the price for these watches varies from $230 USD to $200 USD, depending on the materials used on the watch. They also only measure a standard 40 mm so you don’t have to worry about prices varying due to sizes. Instead, you should refer to the materials used instead. For instance, the Clubmaster Classic HMS in Acetate and Gold is priced at $230 USD. Models without any gold finishing only cost around $200 USD and are a lot more affordable in the second-hand market.

History Behind the Briston Clubmaster Classic Collection

Briston, although a French brand, carries a very British spirit. From its design to the functions of the watches, there’s a lot about Briston watches that make them truly sporty. Purists would say that watches from this brand carry a very engaging Oxford & Cambridge style. Brice Jaunet founded the brand after 15 years of being active in the watch industry.

Jaunet was once part of the world’s biggest watchmaking conglomerates such as Richemont. In that group, he served a position in Cartier. Then, he moved on to work for Baume & Mercier and moved on to Raymond Weil. Eventually, Jaunet joined the LVMH Group as the Export Director for Zenith and then as Vice President for International Marketing. From such a very colorful history, Jaunet founded Briston. This move became his way to honor the legacy of his father Jacques who co-founded NewMan, a French clothing brand, in 1967. This became Jaunet’s inspiration in creating Briston and the aesthetic behind it.

Come 2012, Jaunet employed the help of several friends from the industry. These are Swiss designers who have storied experiences in the watchmaking industry. These designers, alongside Jaunted, put together designs that embraced Jaunet’s vision into a timepiece. From the very beginning Jaunet wanted to create authentic timepieces that are also very pleasing to the eyes and affordable. With all these, plus his history as a student in Oxford and passion for sports gave him the true definition of a Briston watch – sporty, chic, and quirky in spirit.

A year after the brand came to be, Briston launched the Clubmaster Classic that carries the very aesthetic and functions he sees in a watch. It embraces a sporty appearance without sacrificing elegance with a bit of an eccentricity in it. This is what makes the Clubmaster Classic a must-have watch. As much as it’s functional, it doesn’t lose the personality it aims to have.
