Bernhardt Binnacle Timer
As I was preparing this Bernhardt Binnacle Timer review, it occurred to me that next year, Bernhardt, based in North Carolina will be twenty years old. Yes, Bernhardt is one of the OG microbrands and next year they will have been producing watches for two decades. Now keep in mind part of why it just dawned on me as I can’t believe it’s going to be 2025 next year, because in my head it is still like 2002, and the ’90s isn’t 30 years ago!
Back to the present though, and late last year Bernhardt released their latest model, using their popular retro case, the Binnalce Timer. This new model takes that ’60s case design and in it we get a new dial and hands as well as a new inner bezel, this time more dive-orientated with a countdown and elapsed timing bezel, which is operated by the screw-down 2 o’clock crown. The Binnacle Timer also has a slightly domed sapphire crystal, comes in two dial colors (porthole gray and burgee green ), and uses the reliable Miyota 9015, all for $499.
