Bremont ALT1-ZT51

Bremont and Basel-on-Thames

British brand Bremont has decided not to exhibit at the upcoming watch fair in Basel – Baselworld, starting on 23 March – opting to organize its own watch event in London from 27 February to 3 March 2017. Bremont will take over a central London location for a week to showcase its new 2017 watches.…

Bremont Boeing 100

Bremont Boeing 100

What colour do you paint an aircraft cockpit? For many years, Boeing chose brown, presumably because according to their research this colour was the most relaxing for crews. More recently they have returned to grey cockpits, like most other Western-made aircraft, while Soviet-era Russian and Eastern European aircraft had blueish-green cockpits. In any case, “Boeing…

Bremont ALT1-ZT51

Bremont ALT1-ZT/51

The ALT1-Z chronograph with GMT function has been part of the Bremont collection since 2007. This year, the design of the piece has been revised, with applied hour indices, and the 24-hour scale moved to the inner bezel. As the bezel has Bremont’s Roto-Click bi-directional inner bezel, operated using the crown at 8 o’clock, the…

Bremont ALT1-C/PB

Bremont ALT1-C/PB

The Bremont ALT1-C/PB is an extension of Bremont’s core range, and in particular its ALT1-C range of chronograph watches, which were the first that the company designed after its foundation in 2002. The dial layout is classic, with two subdials, one on the left for continuous seconds, one on the right for 30 chronograph minutes. On its…

Bremont Solo 43

The Solo family represents the entry-level for Bremont pilot’s watches. It has now been extended with these two classic pilot’s watches, with black or white dial. The difference with respect to the existing Solo pieces is the case and bezel, now available in polished steel. The Solo case is in steel that is specially hardened…

Bremont Solo-32

These watches were born from popular request. Bremont received feedback that women liked their classic pilots watches and so they have now introduced three 32mm models specifically for the female audience. As is customary for the British brand, no compromise: mechanical movements, COSC chronometer certification that guarantees precision, hardened steel case with excellent toughness and…

Bremont MBII White

Bremont and Martin-Baker are both British companies, and both have close links to aviation. Martin-Baker make ejector seats used in fighter jets, and in 2016 they will reach the figure of 7,500 lives saved using their technology (two short as at February 2016). They asked Bremont to make a “definitive aviation watch” in 2007, tough…

Bremont

Company profile: Bremont is a British brand with a clear ambition: to revive British watchmaking. Their dials are not marked “Swiss made” but “London”, and they are endeavouring to gradually increase the proportion of the watchmaking processes performed in the UK. At the moment, cases, straps and leather packaging are made in England, watches are…

Bremont Regatta AC rose gold

Bremont Regatta AC

Like the Bremont Regatta Otusa, the Bremont Regatta AC is a chronograph that has been modified, the chronograph minutes counter adapted to create a 5-minute countdown function in an arc window at 12 o’clock. The Regatta AC by Bremont is available in two versions, in rose gold and hardened polished steel. Its dial design is more classical…

Bremont Regatta Otusa

Bremont’s new chronograph regatta watches were developed as part of their role as Official Timing Partner to the 35th America’s Cup and to the defending team Oracle Team USA, an agreement that began in 2015 and will continue to the final races in Bermuda in 2017. They all feature the countdown function, which is important…

Bremont Jaguar MkIII

This watch, like its predecessors the Bremont Jaguar MKII and MKI presented earlier this year, is a hymn to the E-Type Jag. I imagine that a watch brand has to consider this sort of operation carefully, because the timepiece inevitably expresses more of the identity of the car than the watch brand itself (other similar…

Bremont Boeing Model 247

The video of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner rehearsing for the Farnborough airshow went viral on the web, with a take-off that develops into a near-vertical climb, so steep that I was thinking, “they must have done that with CGI.” (See link below). The guys at Bremont will have been impressed, and happy. Bremont signed a…
