So here it is, one of the hotly anticipated ‘Boeing’ watches.
The Bremont Boeing Model 1 is the 3 hand offering which although has taken lots of cues which are typically Bremont has really quite a different look to it. The Model 1 is being produced in both stainless steel ( not just any steel, but custom grade Steel that has been developed for the aerospace industry ) and aviation grade ‘Ti-64’ Titanium.

The Model 1 will be available in both black and white dials, with Boeing Blue accents.

One of the big differences of the Boeing watch is that all the Boeing cases will be made in house in the UK, one step nearer to every part of Bremont watches being made in house…

As you can see the BBM1 is quite a deep set watch, but features the Trip Tick case construction.

The crown protector it would seem has taken design inspiration from its aerospace partner.

The dial is clean, with smaller numerals than for instance the SOLO, but still maximum impact.

Here the detail on the crown is shown, the sleek aviation inspired look

Do you notice the way the crown guard is incorporated into the Trip-Tick case and molded with the lower right lug? Very cool and understated.

I wasn't sure about the crown guard initially, but it moulds really well.

Great styling on this. The crown guard suits the case really well and it is another classic from Bremont.

I love the white dialled version , very nice and I actually like the crown guard. The way the crown guard moulds around the crown looks very sleek to me and very clever. The blue highlights against the white dial makes this model stand out for me !

Its great that the cases are being made here , another step in the right direction ;)

I like everything about this one, apart (perhaps) from the angle of the date window. Overall though, the design looks like a winner.

Wow - instant classic! I really like the white dial version of this - the black numerals and blued hands make it very legible and distinct. This one will be a winner for sure!

Chamfers on the lugs or refelctions? Or better yet, I need a better monitor at work :)

Goes from brushed to polished right on the edge of the lugs.
