Competition: win a Braun and Dezeen limited-edition BN0031 watch

Dezeen has collaborated with German brand Braun on a limited-edition watch, and we've got 10 to give away to readers.

As part of the collaboration, Dezeen chose a navy-blue for the BN0031's dial, case and bracelet – a first for Braun, whose collections consist primarily of silver and black pieces.

The watch features Braun's trademark-yellow second hand, while the numerals, indices and hour and minute hands are a muted grey.

The unisex timepiece is lightweight, and has a 32-millimetre case and a stainless steel mesh bracelet. It is fastened with a snap case-back and carries a Swiss quartz movement.

Only 250 numbered pieces have been made, with each piece featuring a unique number engraved on the case-back, alongside the Braun and Dezeen logos.

"Braun watches are among the most iconic timepieces of all time and we're really honoured that the brand has chosen Dezeen for this collaboration," said Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

"We're sure that this unique watch will be a hit with our design-savvy audience and, being a limited edition, will be a collector's piece in years to come."

The limited-edition watch is among a range of reissued products that follow the original designs created by German industrial designers Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs for Braun in the 1970s.

Braun became the first to apply the principle of simple, functional design to electronics in the 1950s. The values of quality, functionality, clarity, longevity and timelessness have since been integrated into the brand's enduring design ethos.

In an exclusive interview with Dezeen, Dietrich Lubs – who was responsible for some of Braun's most influential products – spoke about his minimalist approach, and why he was happy for Apple to repurpose his designs.

"The Braun philosophy was about reducing the unnecessary bling-bling details," Lubs told Dezeen. "This approach was applied across all Braun products, from clocks to hi-fi systems, as well as kitchen and haircare products."

"The philosophy at that time was really nice, rather than being about making everything bigger and bigger," he said.

Dezeen has previously partnered with watch brands InstrmntEone and Void to launch collaborations under its now-closed sister company, Dezeen Watch Store.

Ten readers will each win a BN0031 watch, which is available to purchase now.
