Contemporary Features

Certified Ethically Sourced Exotic Woods: Obtained in a responsible and sustainable way, that the workers involved in making them are safe and treated fairly and that environmental and social impacts are taken into consideration during the sourcing process.

Premium Automatic & Quartz Mechanisms: Our Seiko & Miyota movements are assembled in Japan using only parts manufactured at our Japanese plants, which enables us to ensure their quality. The production of high-quality movements is made possible by high-speed automatic assembly lines which were developed in-house through the extensive knowledge and experience of our engineers. 

Scratch-Resistant Crystal Glass: the clear cover that goes over the dial and protects it – can be made of a variety of materials. Typically in the luxury watch field, sapphire crystals are preferred. Sapphire is extremely strong and scratch resistant, making it the top choice for a fine timepiece.

Hand-Painted Enamel & Natural Stone: Dials made of enamel can last forever, have a great smooth aspect, are prestigious because of their very artisanal production process and have existed since the 17th century. Since then, enamel has used mostly been used on exclusive watches. Enamel is composed of glass powder extracted from silica. Crystal healing is a pseudo scientific alternative medicine technique that uses semiprecious stones and crystals such as Lapis, Quartz, Amethyst or Opals. Adherents of the technique claim that these have healing powers, although there is no scientific basis for this claim.

Water Resistant to 3 ATM: Your watch can withstand rain or accidental splashes. You can also keep it during shower but we recommend you do so only if the watch is new or has been recently resealed. This is because the watch water resistance seal may degrade over time.

Self-Sizing Tools Included: Two screw drivers included in the box to custom fit the BONHEUR Timepiece to any wrist. Great for collectors and gift-giving!

Quick-Release Wood & Leather Bracelets: These straps are strong and very thin, and more comfortable during warm weather. All wood bracelets have quick-release to easily switch straps to leather or canvas for a custom look and comfort. 

Exclusive Numbered Timepieces: Only 101 pieces of any model produced, making all BONHEUR Timepieces One Of A Kind. Exclusive and Limited Editions!

100% Canadian Manufacturing: All processes of production of wood & assembly occurs in Canada. This supports Canadian Families & Canadian Artisans.
