I'm just now starting to look at this brand,so I'm wondering what some of you think of the brand. Haven't really been too focused on any one model,just curious about the brand itself.

Debaufre has a pretty loyal following.

I have one, also.

I've never read anything negative about them.

Very good quality Jeff. Outstanding bracelets and straps. Much better bracelets than some of even the most high end divers.I have owned 2 different styles and I was impressed and also the prices are more than fair.

I do not recall ever hearing anything negative about their watches or services. Great looking watches, many nice designs to choose from.

I own two Debaufre Pilots and love'em both. Go for it, IMO.

Of the 79 or so watches I own, I can honestly say that it is one of my top 5 favorite watches. Excellent quality and it is one of the most accurate watches I own. 5-6 seconds fast per day which I think is pretty damn good.

Debaufre makes fantastic watches. I think their pilot series watches are some of the best on the market for there price point IMHO.

I agree the pilot watches are very good.

The Ocean 1 doesn't compare favorably to, say, Oris TT1 but the price allows for some shortcomings.

I own three Debaufre's, an Ocean 1 blue dial and bezel, a GMT with SS bezel and a Czar in SS. Love them all. I feel the quality is very good and their customer service is excellent. Hope these shots help.

I've got a Triton 2000 and it's a very well built watch. Fit and finish is top notch, and the lume on both the dial & bezel is great.
