Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of its famous 1953 Le Mans success, Bremont introduces a new C-Type model to its Jaguar collection.
On the 70th anniversary of Duncan Hamilton’s iconic 1953 Le Mans race win where the Jaguar C-types finished first, second and fourth, Bremont introduces a new iteration of the C-type, celebrating the lightweight tubular steel chassis and aluminium body of the iconic vehicle with evocative nods to the innovation and beauty of the original 1951 model.
The monochrome 43mm Jaguar C-type chronograph is a contemporary take on a motoring classic and adds to Bremont’s Motorsport Collection. The stainless steel Trip-Tick® case construction with scratch resistant PVD treated case middle is completed by its bi- directional rotating tachymeter ring with the brushed finish a visual nod to the famous disc brake of the C-type, famous as it was the first ever race car to use this pioneering technology that is still used today.
INSPIRED BY AN ICON
Stripping the colour palette back to the original silver coloured chassis presents the Smiths gauge inspired sub dials and vintage details in an altogether refreshing and modern way, reminiscent of a reverse panda dial layout. The screw down crown is engraved with the original Jaguar heritage Dunlop tyre tread, iconic to Bremont’s Jaguar range of watches.
Turning the watch over reveals its closed case back featuring a decorative coin depicting the Jaguar ‘Growler’ hood badge. A contemporary black leather racing strap complements the steel and black dial configuration.

Bremont Co-Founder Nick English adds: “Our relationship with Jaguar dates back to 2010 when we were asked by their Design Director at the time, British design legend Ian Callum, to make some clocks for concept cars such as the C-X75 and the XJ75. We subsequently relished the opportunity to develop a range of Jaguar watches around some of their most iconic and celebrated cars such as the E-type, D-type and now it’s lovely to be adding another C-type model into the mix.”
