Design Time – International Watch Design Competition

Designboom in collaboration with BREIL promotes an international design competition open to applicants from every country in the world, to professionals, students, and design-enthusiasts.

Participants are asked to design the next stainless steel watch in the BREIL collection. BREIL is seeking an attractive, feasible design that could have success as a real watch in the company’s line. Male, female, and unisex designs are equally welcomed.

The designers of 3 winning entries will be granted with cash prize awards of €3000 each.


The theme of this competition is ‘Design Time‘. The competition regards exclusively the design of the watch, not of the watch mechanism or other internal components.

The watch must be a wrist watch, analog not digital, and should use stainless steel, or stainless steel in combination with other materials.

You need to submit up to 6 images of your design and an explanation of the idea.


The designers of 3 winning entries will be granted with cash prize awards of €3000 each.

In the event that BREIL exercises the option to use the rights for production on an exclusive basis and sine die (without time limitations), BREIL will make an agreement with the participant for the transfer of intellectual property rights.


  • Projects should not be currently in production.
  • It is important that you keep your design(s) confidential until the results of the competition are published.
  • If you are entering more than one work, please submit each work separately.
