From their website:

Quality craftsmanship – Made in Germany A technical engineer with an eye for style, Rainer Brändlein founded Essex in 2007 as an exclusive watch brand for today’s active gentleman.

His passion for sophisticated watches goes back over 20 years. Then, the father of his best friend worked as a watch dealer, buying and selling the most exclusive brands. Fascinated by the watches’ design and advanced technical demands, Rainer Brändlein soon dreamed of designing and producing is own unique watch. And now, many years later, the perfect moment has arrived – his dream has come true.

As fate would have it, Rainer Brändlein met just the right people who could realize his plans with expertise: two product designers and a master watchmaker with over 20 years of experience. They were quickly inspired by Rainer Brändlein’s philosophy about providing high-quality, timeless watches at a price that isn’t over the top – and full of motivation, they set to work.

Two years later, after many drafts and development stages, the Essex La Primera collection of watches was born – and with pride, introduced to the public exclusively in the United States for the first time in Men’s Health magazine.

I was over at OceanicTimes and saw a pictoral of the Essex Watch Company "La Primera GMT". I went over to the Essex website to get additional information. Here is some information on that watch as well as their diving chronographs:

Really like the look of the GMT. The bracelets have that Accutron VX 200 look about them and think that bracelet was one of the nicest I have ever owned. Would love to hear from an owner of this brand.

The only time I have ever seen a bracelet that nice is on my Poljot Nights of St. Petersburg. IMO, the bracelet is reason enough to purchase one of those pieces. Now I know what I want.

See what I mean??

Pricey big time. For the amount of money I would probably just buy another high end Oris or a couple Hamiltons. We are talking getting close to some of the Omega watches price range on the GMT and Chronos. They are extremely cool looking and definitely one of the sharpest bracelets I have seen.
