I recently ran across another interesting watch brand on Amazon. It’s a Chinese brand called Brigada. While some of the Amazon ad text says Brigada Swiss Brand, my research shows that they come from Shenzen, China.

Nevertheless, Brigada watches seem to be solid, no nonsense, minimalist watches with reliable Japanese movements. The watch brand earns consistent 4 1/2 star reviews on Amazon. Most importantly they simply look good and they sell for reasonable prices.
These kind of commodity quartz watches give the basic models from companies like Timex and Casio a run for the money. Plus, with an exotic name like Brigada, people will wonder if you are wearing an exotic foreign brand. In truth you are, but this exotic brand isn’t coming from Europe.
