The Australian Watch Company

Since 2011


BAUSELE stands for Beyond AUStralian ELEments


When it comes to quality and value, Bausele goes above and beyond. Our ultra-precise Swiss mechanisms are protected by un-scratchable sapphire crystal and surgical-grade stainless steel, plated with 18ct rose gold or in black, and all come with a 5-year warranty.


Bausele has its own production unit in Adelaide, created in a joint venture with Flinders University. We are proud to be bringing quality watchmaking to Australia, for the first time in this amazing country’s history.


Each watch has an element of Australiana in the crown. Sand from Bondi or Whitehaven beach, red earth from the Kimberley, Opal from Cooper Pedy to name a few. Which means the wearer can keep a piece of Australia with them, wherever life takes them.

Bausele Sydney Opera House

Bausele has had the honour to be commissioned by the Sydney Opera House to design a watch with, and for, them.


The crown of the watch contains ceramic tile from the Sydney Opera House. Only a limited number of original ‘snow and ice’ tiles remain in existence from the now closed Höganäs AB quarry in Sweden.


The watch face draws inspiration from architect Jorn Utzon’s original design sketches, featuring multiple discs that reveal their spherical solution at 2.45pm. This is the exact time that Queen Elizabeth II opened the Sydney Opera House on 20th October 1973.

Surgical Stainless Steel

All Bausele timepieces are manufactured in 316L stainless steel, the same ultra-resistant steel used to make surgical equipment. We use it because it never oxidises.

Swiss Precision Movement

We partner with the best movement suppliers in Switzerland. Depending on each watch and the functionalities we are looking for, we will choose the best movement for that watch.

Sapphire Crystal

All of our watches are fitted with sapphire crystal, the most resistant crystal there is. Sapphire is a naturally growing crystal and the second hardest substance on the planet – so hard that only a diamond can scratch it.

5-Year Warranty

We work hard from the conception phase of the watch all the way to production and quality control to minimise any after sale issues. Which is why we’re happy to offer a 5-year warranty. In the unlikely event of an issue with a watch, Mark, our awesome watchmaker, will make sure our customer is soon delighted with their Bausele purchase.


“When I discovered the brand I was first drawn to its Australian heartbeat. And, as a watch fan, I like the reliability offered because the brand is Swiss made. There’s no denying that Bausele watches are stylish, unique and different from other brands. My Terra Australis is eye catching but not flashy, which is perfect for the way I dress and my lifestyle.” - Dominic Purcell
