Paris based young watch brand Burel makes exceptional mechanical timepieces inspired from the nautical world.

In 2013, the brand entered into the watchmaking industry with its first two models, the Class Yacht and the Class Sail. The style of each is distinguished by the elegance of their faces of precious woods, which are based on boat decks.

In 2014, the brand wanted to create new model inspired by nautical instrumentation. For this new model will keep the precious nautical brand identity taken from the style and use of materials related to the nautical world.  This model has been christened as CLASS CAPE.
