December comes with a very special combo deal in our online shop:

FREE CUSTOM ENGRAVING - If you want to make your Christmas gifts even more special, choose one of our nautical bracelets from the Adriatica, Trogir and Istria collections and personalize it by adding a special engraved message (up to 10 characters) on top of the metal bar.

Wanna take over our Instagram account for a day?

If you ever visited our Instagram page (which, btw, went through a name change and is now called @breaktimecroatia instead of @breaktimenautical) you have probably noticed that it does not really follow the "rules" of having an unified style, same filters etc.

And that is because we believe in diversity, because our fans are also really diverse. People of all ages, occupations, hobbies, styles, from Croatia but also from dozens of world countries, love our handmade nautical bracelets and send us photos with them. Me and my husband - he makes the bracelets - we are as happy as kids every time we receive a photo from you, guys. Your love means a lot to us, it really does! So we publish as many as we can on our Insta page (I apologise if it happened that you tagged us and I did not reply and repost your photo - pls send me a DM, it was unintentional :)

Amazing ladies from Quebec, Canada visited the Break Time Croatia shop in DubrovnikThree generations, a whole German family, now wearing Break Time nautical bracelets

Just married couple from South Africa - he got her an anchor bracelet as a honeymoon presentYoung couple from Dubrovnik wearing Break Time nautical braceletsPink nautical anchor bracelet in our Break Time shop in Split, Croatia

In the photos above we have just a very small part of our amazing customers. I loved the energy of the ladies from Quebec, Canada (first row, left) who visited us in Dubrovnik, and the fact that three generations of a fun German family got nautical bracelets from our shop in Split (first row, right). I was very moved by the South-African couple who were married only 9 days and he chose to get her one of our anchor bracelets as a honeymoon present (second row, left). I am a sucker for people in love, actually, so I loved also meeting this local couple from Dubrovnik (second row, middle). And I am now following the Insta adventures onboard a cruise ship of the cool lady in pink (who is a badass DJ, by the way!). 

What I want to say is that we see our Facebook and Instagram pages as a place where our fans are gathering and exchanging cool photos with their Break Time nautical bracelets. So it actually came naturally to us the idea of YOU, our fans, the people who believe what we make is cool enough to spend your money buying one or more pieces, taking over our Instagram account for a day and post stories of how your day goes, and also photos on the main page, as if it was your own Insta page. You do not have to be an "influencer" (meaning that you do not have to have hundreds of thousands of followers). All you have to be is in love with our bracelets and to like taking photos and sharing them with others :)

Take over the Break Time Croatia Instagram account for a day

Today we had a first such experiment! Dijana Kocic aka @ambiciozna was the boss of @breaktimecroatia page. She posted stories from Rovinj (Istria region of Croatia) and she also posted three photos on the main page. She had complete control over what stories she posted (she basically took us with her through the day) and we only asked her that two of the photos for the main page should feature a Break Time bracelet, while the third photo can be anything she wants from Rovinj. And this is what she posted (thank you for sharing a day with us, Dijana!):

 Break Time Croatia. Handmade Nautical Bracelets. For Her. For Him. For Kids.

Here are also a few stories that Dijana posted throughout the day:

 Break Time Croatia anchor bracelet in RovinjBreak Time Croatia anchor bracelet in Rovinj

Bottom line is that we want to repeat this. So - if you are our fan (meaning that you own one or more Break Time nautical bracelets) and if you would like to be in charge of our Insta for a day and show us around your town, your home, your workplace, your school or your holiday - send us a DM on our Instagram page!

Autumn discounts up to 25%, for all our handmade nautical bracelets, key-rings and necklaces

Who says you cannot wear fun nautical bracelets in autumn, too? Especially since - at least here, in Croatia, we are preparing for an Indian summer, with temperatures up to 30 degrees Celsius at least in September (looking forward to continue swimming and enjoying the sun and the beach!).

Anyhoo, my point is that we have prepared some cool discounts for this fall season and...even if September is still a few days away... you can already enjoy them in our online shop, and - starting Monday (28.08) - also in our Dubrovnik and Split stores in Croatia.

  • 10% for orders over 40

Handmade nautical bracelets - From Croatia, with love

Two main things happened in the last 24 hours that made us feel proud and happy. First, last night, was this article published by Total Croatia Sailing - if you read it, you will understand why :)

Second, this morning, was waking up to find an email from Trip Advisor, announcing us that our Split shop was awarded the Certificate of Excellence, for constant good reviews. Cannot wait to receive our personalised award, to frame it and showcase it in the shop. And we are grateful to all the media love and to all of our customers who took the time to write such nice things about us on Trip Advisor or on our Facebook pages (we have yet to receive a bad review, which is amazing).

Break Time Croatia - Best Shopping Destination in Split

 It is a great feeling to have your work appreciated and rewarded. We love these moments and they make us keep wanting to do better and to be better. So keep on letting us know when we succeed and when we fail. Thank you!
