The BN0106 is the first watch in the Prestige collection by Braun. This deluxe digital timepiece features a top quality patented EasySkroll v 2.0 operating system, which is used to navigate through the variety of functions available on the watch.
The scroll sits on the bottom left hand side of the face. The scroll is rotated to navigate through each function and then pushed in to adjust it. A small button on the opposite right hand side switches on the back light.
The functions include two time and date screens, an alarm, a stopwatch and a countdown timer.
The date settings can be arranged in a choice of formats: day and date, month and date or date and month. The clock can be set to 24 hour or 12 hour. The two time and date displays enable the wearer to set the watch to different time zones.
The language can be changed between English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
The stopwatch setting will count minutes, seconds and milliseconds. Once the stopwatch has counted for an hour the screen will then show the hours, minutes and seconds. The stopwatch can be stopped and started again, and reset when needed.
The countdown timer lets out a beeping sound to alert the wearer once the time is up. The same beep is used for the alarm function.
The watch is available with a rubber or stainless steel strap and comes with either a black or stainless steel face. The face measures 41.8 millimetres by 36.7 millimetres and is 10.1millimetres thick. The timepiece won an iF award and a Red Dot award for product design in 2012.
The watch comes with an instruction booklet as a guide to all the various functions.
