INTRODUCING OUR FEATURED BREMONT
The H-4 Hercules
At a time of austerity, one young American dared to dream big. Pushing the boundaries of aviation, he built the largest aircraft in the world. The H-4 Hercules is better known as the ‘Spruce Goose’. Just like its creator Howard Hughes, this giant silver flying boat is legendary. The new Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition pays tribute to one of the greatest feats of aviation engineering in history.
The design of the H-4 Hercules Limited Edition is reminiscent of the 40's style of the aircraft, from the dark brown tones to the beautifully applied numerals, every aspect of the timepiece harks back to Howard Hughes' masterpiece of aviation engineering. This design is limited to only 300 stainless steel, 75 Rose Gold and 75 Platinum pieces.
A PIECE OF HISTORY
Each Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition rotor is constructed using original birch wood from the H-4 Hercules fuselage, which has been carefully incorporated into each propeller blade. A percentage of proceeds from each limited edition will go towards the preservation of the aircraft at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, Oregan, USA.
Bremont BWC/02 automatic with 25 jewels, Glucydur balance, Nivarox CT balance spring. Highly efficient double reverser bi-directional winding mechanism to achieve 28,800bph and 50+ hour power reserve. Galvanised NAC (Nickel Anthracite Coating) balance cock, barrel bridge and train bridge.
The ALT1-C remains true to each of the technical principles behind any revered automatic timepiece. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometer-rated movement, the ALT1-C brings together the art of watch making with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability.
Originally designed for Martin Baker the MBI recognises the extreme commitment made by pilots who had been ejected from their planes in combat, its creation inspired a range of watches also available to the public. The range is the most authentic, functional automatic pilots watch available today. It’s internal faraday cage acts to protect the watch from the effects of magnets and also shock.
The MBII retains the classic DNA that has made the MB a must-have for any serious collector. While the MBI is reserved for the few, the MBII is available to all and has become a Bremont best seller.
Designed as a classic pilots watch, the SOLO is an obvious choice for those wanting to enter the world of Bremont automatic chronometers. No pilot ever forgets their first solo flight and the exhilaration as the wheels leave the runway. This feeling was undoubtedly an inspiration behind the SOLO and with it the ability to leave a long lasting impression on its wearer.
Bremont have been commissioned by many military squadrons, special forces teams and battalions to create individual limited editions. It came as no surprise then when early in 2018 they were commissioned by the MoD to develop iconic watches for each branch of the armed forces.
Available to the military and civilians alike these robust functional and stylish watches have not disappointed. Visit us in store to view the collection.
A robust but beautifully engineered diving watch, the S500 is named as a tribute to the iconic British aircraft manufacturer responsible for the Supermarine S6B Schneider Trophy Seaplane and of course the incredible Supermarine Spitfire.
The new Supermarine Type 300 range responds to a demand for a professional dive watch in a slightly smaller iteration. The watches’ namesake derives from the 1930’s aircraft company, Supermarine, whose first ever Spitfire prototype – the Type 300 – led to one of Britain’s most iconic aircraft.
