Hello everyone,

As some of you will already know, myself and Greg (gmsmith) will be at Baselworld next week - and will be covering it on behalf of the forum. We've just been chatting, and we thought it would be a good idea if we could get as many members questions answered as possible, by the relevant members of the Bremont team.

So: if you have any questions you'd like answered, Basel related or otherwise, please post them below and either myself or Greg will be along to give you an answer! :cool:

Thanks,
Jake.

Great. We're in at 10 on Friday morning (and probably running out at 10.30 to see the eclipse!) Hopefully see you then.

Hi Guys, I'm sure you will anyway but could I ask that you take some shots (on +off!!) of the new ALT1-ZT and Boeing 1 Ti GMT - this one with particular reference to the height of the watch and if it differs much from the height of the 247??
Also, could you find out if the dial colours shown on the promo shots of each watch will be the only colour offered on each one?

When are they likely to be ready to ship and prices would be good if they can give any idea!!
Think that's all for now!
Cheers!!

Could you also tell Nick + Giles that they have produced yet more stunning pieces! 1 of each please.... :cool:

Hi Steve,

Here's the picture: top is the Z, bottom the Boeing..

http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag211/RBG/Mobile%20Uploads/F73746B2-34D0-4092-9357-E903DA7BA6A3_zps8llgysys.jpg (http://s1369.photobucket.com/user/RBG/media/Mobile%20Uploads/F73746B2-34D0-4092-9357-E903DA7BA6A3_zps8llgysys.jpg.html)

As far as dial colours go, it's only what they've shown here - no more colours.

Shipping dates: May, July and the Jaguar watches in September.

Prices: TBC.

Hope that helps.

Thanks mate, what do you think of the 6 new ones in the flesh?? What are your impressions/opinions?

Is that the Boeing 1 or 247?

They are all good, I think. I'll share some more opinions when I have a second.

So will the new GMT Boeings come in steel, or just the titanium? Will the original Model 1 and 247 still have a titanium option? If so, what is the timeline and what are the prices?

What does the "T" stand for in ALT1-ZT?

Jeremy - check my other thread for prices and dates.

I was asking about last years Model 1 and Model 247 titanium versions(non-GMT). So far, they have not been released yet to my knowledge.

Hi J, I was just watching a video from Rob @ Topper who is talking to Mr Mike Pearson about the new releases, during which he mentions that last years Boeings will just be steel and they wanted to do something new for the Ti case, hence the new GMT variant, so It would appear last years will just be steel, this years, with GMT, just Ti.

Thanks for that! Very interesting!

Just Ti Jeremy.

And also, the T stands for 'Time'. Thus, the 'ZT' is 'Zulu Time.'

Jake - I am looking forward to hearing your impressions of this years show and in particular what is your opinion on the Bremont stand and visitors reaction to it.

Thought I'd post this up - it's the new lapel badge that Bremont staff are wearing for identification at events. It's a rotor from the Wright Flyer, with a magnet attached to make it wearable. Ultra cool.
