Gili's x Briston
3, 2, 1... Go !
This collab is a story of friendship and timing.
For Briston's 10th anniversary, it was time for a collab that delves into the best moments of the year : holidays.
Clarisse and Aymeric, founders of Gili's celebrate their passion for adventure and style with Brice Jaunet, founder of Briston. Together, they have designed a waterproof watch with chic and sober lines, in which we find the Gili's signature : the neon second hand, the azulejos back and the logo. All framed by the unique precision of Briston.
Clubmaster Classic Chrono Date
Inspired by the 1920s, the Clubmaster Classic collection features a unisex 40mm case size and has become the iconic model of the BRISTON range.
Specifically engraved with "Limited Edition BRISTON x GILI'S" on the back and featuring a "curved square" shape, the chronograph model (more sporty) perfectly captures the spirit of this limited edition series for the GILI'S brand.
Dressed in tortoise shell cellulose acetate with a mirrored polished treatment on the case, pushers, and crown, the watch has been personalized with fluorescent yellow inserts. Distinctive elements of this model include a two-layered dial with Arabic numerals and engraved indexes.
The vibrant yellow GILI'S logo is stamped at six o'clock, and most importantly, the "Azulejos" pattern, the signature print of the swimwear brand, is prominently displayed, adding a personalized touch and character to this watch. Lastly, BRISTON has chosen interchangeability by offering two "NATO" style straps in navy blue and fluorescent yellow to accompany GILI'S swimwear. The set is sold in a special case featuring the GILI'S brand pattern!Discovers
Briston x Gili's watch - Clubmaster DIVER 42mm
The Clubmaster DIVER is the first automatic watch of the collection equipped with the NH35 automatic movement in order to reinforce the watchmaking DNA of the Brand & to offer a diving watch in the spirit of GILI'S swimsuits.
The authentic design is inspired by the Supercompressor dive watches of the 1960s with this 42 mm case that is water-resistant to 200 meters and recognizable by the 2 crowns on the right side of the case & engraved especially for the occasion !
Equipped with a fluorescent yellow central hand, each ultra-visible dial of this limited series of 100 pieces is adorned with white Superluminova® type C1 but above all with the "Azulejos" pattern & the GILI'S logo at six o'clock.
Each style & personality has its own style : the navy blue NATO strap will dress up the more classic versions, while each watch is also offered with a more colorful fluorescent yellow NATO strap, all in a special case with a GILI'S branded ring.
Thus BRISTON and GILI'S offer you a collection of watches respecting the values of each : authenticity, know-how, creativity and a unique signature...Discover
After 15 years in the leading watchmaking houses, Brice Jaunet, driven by the desire to undertake, decides to bring to life the creative ideas that inspire him and create BRISTON as the culmination of a personal and professional journey dedicated to time.
Brice Jaunet envisions a watch of horological essence infused with authenticity. He wants his watches to be fair, true, and accessible. By diverting and mixing materials, he succeeds in creating the CLUBMASTER model as a chic and offbeat accessory. Diverting cellulose acetate, traditionally rooted in the eyewear industry, and using unexpected colors to dress the dials is an innovation that gives BRISTON watches a sporty and chic look with a touch of British spirit.
BRISTON collaborates with the best Italian supplier of cellulose acetate: a natural and hypoallergenic material made up of 70% fibers and cotton flower. Finally, the interchangeable NATO strap, robust and water-resistant, was chosen from the start by the founder to reinforce the British and sporty-chic spirit deeply rooted in the brand's DNA.
It adds a touch of elegance to the watch, yet it remains vintage, casual, and naturally chic. Contemporary, stylish, yet casual, BRISTON watches know how to captivate hipsters, dandies, preppies, trendsetters, men, women, or simply watch enthusiasts. And as time inexorably passes, BRISTON will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year.
Ten years since its successful launch at Colette, a decade during which the young watch brand has managed to establish itself...
