Panzera Breuer 44 Review

Hands on Watch Reviews Independent Panzera

Panzera has released their second model, the Breuer 44. The Breuer, which I describe as a more classic dress watch, but updated to a modern size, is much different than their first offering, which was a Flieger model. The reason that I mention this, is while I love dive watches, so many new companies start off with dive watches. Panzera has gone in the opposite direction. Because, after all, we all could use a nice dress watch right?

The B44-02 Arctic, which is the official model name of the version I am reviewing, is a 44mm case, as the model name would imply. With this size, some might be turned off saying 44mm is too big for what is essentially a dress watch. And for some, that is the case. But for someone like myself, who prefers a slightly larger watch, this is the perfect size for a dress watch.

The Breuer 44 is what is referred to as Bauhaus style. Without writing an entire dissertation about what Bauhaus was, Bauhaus was a school founded in 1919 by German Architect, Walter Gropius. The teachings included art, architecture and much more, and had a huge impact on modern design. The Bauhaus design for watches really can be summed up in one word: minimalist. The design, especially the dial, is usually very clean. Most of the time without any numerals, thin hands and markers, and a sleek case design.

The Panzera Breuer 44 follows much of that design philosophy, and has a sleek round case with slightly curved long lugs, and a thickness of 9mm (excluding the domed mineral crystal, which brings it to about 12mm thick).

Please take a look at my first impressions and an up close look in the video presentation below:

Because I give a good look at the watch and point out many of its aspects in the video, for the written review, I like to go more into detail of what I like and dislike about the watch.

I feel the Panzera Breuer has a lot to offer, but there a few things I think could have been changed.

The high polish case finishing is done very well. It’s almost a mirror polish. The finishing gives the watch that luxury feel, but I would love to see a version with an all brushed finish, as I think that would allow it to be worn for a more casual look. Or maybe a combination of brushed and polished finishes.

I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.
