Not every man can pull off jewellery, or even wants to. But every man needs a good watch.

Those in the know, know a classic and quality timepiece is a worthy investment and always makes a treasured heirloom to the next generation. Some of my favourite watches were given to me by my grandfather and serve as a reminder of precious memories. Nobody understands more the importance of a stylish watch which celebrates classic design and boasts the highest quality engineering than Sydney based founder of Swiss watch makers Bausele; Christophe Hoppe.

Founded in Australia in 2011 Bausele which stands for Beyond Australian Elements this week unveiled their latest range celebrating famous Australian landmark The Sydney Opera House.

Hoppe shared his thoughts on the latest affordable luxury men’s release stating “Nothing says ‘Australia’ like the Sydney Opera House. And nothing celebrates the spirit of Australian innovation like a Bausele watch. So, when a world-famous architectural masterpiece and an Australian-designed, Swiss-made timepiece come together, you have a Masterpiece of Time.”

While being engineered in Switzerland boasting ultra-precise mechanisms and sapphire crystal and surgical grade stainless steel each Bausele is unconditionally linked to its Australian heritage because of the signature hollow crown feature. Each timepiece captures actual elements of Australia, such a red earth of from Outback Australia or sand crystals from any one of Australia’s 10685 beaches. So wherever your journey in life takes you, you’ll always carry a piece of home with you.

Key features of the Bausele Sydney Opera House Watch include Swiss movement, 40mm diameter, scratch proof sapphire crystal face and genuine leather strap. While the watch is water resistant 5ATM it also includes a five year warranty and can be found exclusively from the Opera House Shop for $595, or online at Other classic Bausele designs can be purchased at David Jones or The Pen Boutique in The Canberra Centre.
