In the past I have reviewed a few men’s watch’s from BLWRX/Neymar, a prolific Chinese microbrand watch company. The company’s watches combine classic homage designs with exceptional quality and value. For this review I have the first woman’s watch I have seen from the company. It is a model BL126311L, one of the models in their line of 36mm, quartz powered, woman’s dress watches. Currently only offered through Amazon, there are 13 models offered of this watch with various case, bracelet, bezel, face, indices and hands combinations.
This particular model is completely stainless steel with a river mother of pearl dial, rectangular indices, polished baton and lollipop hands and discrete Roman numerals. A small 3 o’clock black on white date window, and an unexpected, 3 o’clock screw down, polished, gear edged, signed crown, Rolex style screw down case back, oyster style bracelet and interchangeable bezels complete this particular design. The bezels screw on and off with precision. One bezel is a classic Rolex style fluted bezel. The second bezel is filled with 48 CNC machine set cubic zirconia. Amazingly the watch uses a flat, slightly raised, beveled edge sapphire crystal, superluminova lumed hands and it is rated 10 ATM for water resistance. This is not a fashion watch!
The watch measures a perfect woman’s 36mm in diameter, 10.25mm thick, 42.5mm lug to lug with 18mm lug width. The bracelet tapers to 16mm and the flip lock, push button clasp with three micro adjustments measures just under 18mm across. The top and sides of the case are polished and the case back is brushed and nicely etched. The outer links of the oyster style bracelet are brushed while the center links are polished. The curved down, solid male end links flow smoothly into the bracelet. The bracelet use easy to adjust push pins for adding or removing links . The high quality bracelet clasp is completely stamped as are the folding links; they keep the watch’s weight and balance in check. The lugs do curve downward with the caseback protruding, but the watch is thin enough that it doesn’t really matter. This watch is comfortable without feeling dainty.
The watch face uses 11 uniform, green tinted, raised rectangular, polished edge indices. The shorter 3 o’clock indice at the date window fits the design well and doesn’t really detract from the balance of the face design. The date window is small and easy to read. Outside of each indice are small printed, black Roman numerals and 48 printed, black minute/second markers. The only additional black printing on the face is the brand name and font as expected. Powering this watch is a Miyota quartz movement that in this example is just a few seconds a month slow; I don’t think anyone could expect better accuracy. There is absolutely no bounce to the second hand. Everything lines up correctly on the watch face while the river mother of pearl dial combined with the cubic zirconia bezel both help to give this watch just the right amount of classic bling. For a more formal business look, the fluted bezel is a great alternative as well.
I honestly cannot find a single detail of this watch that is not executed perfectly. It combines quality, careful finishing, classic design and value. Currently this model BLWRX watch and all of the variations it comes in are available on Amazon for only $99.99. I don’t think there is a better value currently available in this type of woman’s watch.
