The Bremont Supermarine divers watch is inspired by their principles of aviation. Each watch maintains the Bremont DNA with the Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction and beautifully finished chronometer-tested movement. The Supermarine range is available in 3 case sizes suitable to fulfil any professional diving requirements.
The SOLO-32 AJ line has a more modern aesthetic with applied index markers and named in honour of one of the English brothers’ childhood heroes, Amy Johnson, who flew her DH-60 Gypsy Moth from England to Australia in 1930. Complementing this model is the SOLO-32 LC timepiece which is classic and timeless.
The Bremont SOLO range is inspired by the classic pilot watches from the 1940s and comes in various case sizes and dial variations. The SOLO is a beautiful chronometer and legibility played a significant role in it's design. An obvious choice for anyone interested in the allure of mechanical watches, the classic Bremont Trip-Tick® case, hardened in the UK to over 2000Hv on the Vickers’ scale, is over seven times more scratch resistant than typical watch-grade steel
The AIRCO models have been named after the ‘Aircraft Manufacturing Company Limited’, one of the first British military aircraft manufacturers. The watches are constructed using Bremont’s technical three piece ‘Trip-Tick ®’ cases which are produced at the company’s facilities in the UK, housing the smaller but beautifully finished chronometer rated BE-92AE movement. There will be two models in the Bremont AIRCO range, the AIRCO MACH 1/BK and the AIRCO MACH 2/AN.
Bremont and Jaguar continue their relationship following an overwhelming response to the creation of six Bremont chronometers which complement each of the six ‘continuation’ lightweight E-Type sports racing cars currently being built by Jaguar. The new range of watches are dedicated to the road-going Jaguar E-Type which at its 1961 launch was not only the fastest production car in the world but, according to Enzo Ferrari, the most beautiful.
Martin-Baker is a British aviation company responsible for supplying 70% of the world’s Air Forces with fighter ejection seat technology. They first approached Bremont to create the definitive aviation watch in 2007. More than simply putting a logo on an existing model, the watch had to withstand the same rigorous testing programme as the ejection seats themselves. Two years later, the Bremont MBI was born. The limited edition MBI remains solely for pilots who have ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker seat whereas the MBII and MBIII are available to all.
Working with Boeing’s material research expertise and AMRC’s development of innovative manufacturing processes, Bremont has set a new standard in aviation timepieces. The Bremont Boeing Model 1 and Model 247 are stunning advanced designs constructed from aviation grade metals which in some cases are new to watch manufacture. Whilst using cutting edge and more modern materials, the timepieces act as classic tributes to an earlier era in Boeing’s rich history.
The Bremont ALT1-Z was designed with aviators and world travellers in mind. Z stands for ‘Zulu Time’ and allows the wearer to display local time together with the official world time standard: Universal Time Coordinated (UTC), Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or even Zulu time (Z). UTC replaced GMT in 1972 as the international reference standard for communications, military, aviation, maritime and other activities that span multiple time zones.
The ALT1-P is designed for those who demand both accuracy and clarity. The clear Super-LumiNova® C3 hands and dial numbers make it a popular choice with aviation professionals. Like the Bremont ALT1-Z, the case has an integrated internally rotating bezel. Operated by a crown situated at 8H, it effortlessly measures the time of trips. The modified COSC tested Valjoux movement is finished to the highest possible standards.
The ALT1-C remains true to each of the technical principles behind any revered automatic timepiece. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometer-rated Valjoux 7750-SO BI AC movement, the ALT1-C brings together art of watch making with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability.
My father’s work was primarily theoretical. Nevertheless, he was a person who placed great value on precision craftsmanship and the interplay of design and technology. This antique desk was a most treasured possession, representing both his grandmother’s pioneering commitment to education, and a portal back to happy childhood memories. The Hawking family are delighted that its legacy may live on further now in the Hawking Bremont timepieces.
Bremont has grown at an exponential rate since their first watch was introduced by the incredibly passionate and able English Brothers back in 2007. They have long since proved that their tag line of “Tested Beyond Endurance” is no hollow PR babble. The cases are made of a toughened steel that is processed in-house and has a hardness rating over 5 times harder than standard steel. Couple this with patented shock resistant technology, anti-magnetism and real world water resistance and you can see why these watches are the choice of the military, special forces and adventurers alike. Ambassadors who have tested these watches in situations and environments that would finish off the average person, include Nirmal Pirja, Ross Edgely, Ben Saunders, Sean Conway and Jordan Wylie.
